Open Learning Environment (OLE)
|Open Learning Environment|
|A Learning environment where the learner learns through a process of self exploration and discovery. In an open learning environment, the learner plays an active role, deciding what is to be learned, when and how. Unlike the traditional lecture based methods, the learner is at the centre of the learning process. The following video will put this idea to perspective.
The role of the teacher is also different in an open learning environment. He/She is no more at the centre of the learning process but instead plays the role of a scaffold, directing, guiding and facilitating the learner. The teacher ensures that there is a structure, preventing the learner from straying away from the path while in the process of self exploration
