Abstract

e‑Learning, of late, has been witnessing an unprecedented expansion as an opportunity for higher education. This expanding alternative mode calls for ensuring and imparting a sound and qualitative education. The present study made an attempt to investigate the issues related to the quality dimensions of e‑learning. Our results revealed the presence of both strengths and weaknesses in the e‑learning system. It is interesting to note, that the e‑learners have expressed diverse opinions with regard to administrative issues, instruction materials, instructors' support, viper sessions (VIPER, Voice Internet Protocol Extended Reach is a software which helps interactive learning through the Internet) , grading and assessment. The findings of the study further demonstrate that if the concept of e‑learning is imparted with a better approach and perspective, the reach will be phenomenal. This study reiterates the relevance of imparting qualitative education through e‑learning.

Abstract

The purpose of this study is to analyze and synthesize the recent research related to nationwide MOOC initiatives in Malaysian higher education that have been published from 2014 to 2018 in order to gain an overview of the growth of MOOC in Malaysia and to identify the issues facing implementation of nationwide MOOC initiatives in the Malaysian higher education context. This study utilized a descriptive systematic literature review (SLR) approach using systematic content analysis techniques to compile and analyze publications related to nationwide MOOC initiatives in the Malaysian higher education system. The 25 MOOC studies reviewed are categorized into three sections: Malaysia MOOC, followed by a summary of researches relevant to Malaysia MOOC and finally, issues of the nationwide MOOC implementation in Malaysia. Several recommendations are provided to expand MOOC’s nationwide initiative in Malaysian higher education systems. The significance of the paper is twofold: (a) to inform researchers, designers, and teachers, about the state of the art of nationwide MOOC initiative in Malaysia; (b) to provide suggestions for adapting the nationwide MOOC initiative in Malaysian higher education system and other countries sharing similar interests in institutionalizing their MOOC.

Editorial

A new issue of EJEL brings seven interesting pieces of research from different countries around the world. The learners involved in these researches range from school children to mature postgraduate students; they are of a variety of nationalities, they have differing previous experience and are of both genders. The learners have different modes of working; on‑campus or at a distance, and the educators have a variety of approaches and strategies to meet the difficulties their learners face. Reading these papers gives an insight to the challenges that the e‑Learning community faces. Overwhelmingly I am left with the view that there is no one‑size‑fits‑all in e‑Learning; we must be prepared to consider the individual if e‑Learning is to succeed.
