There are now dozens of different types of virtual education management systems or LMS that are used by many companies and organizations for virtual education (LMS) and providing course titles to students. A virtual learning management system (LMS) is commonly used to share a common goal between faculty and students, to manage and administer a broad curriculum, to segregate and reduce the workforce.

 When choosing an LMS, the most important thing for an organization is to consider the ability of the system to plan how to deliver materials and topics to students. And then matching the needs of the organization with the virtual learning management system that provides you with the features and programs you want.

E-learning is divided into six categories:

  • E-learning tutorial

This type of learning is the same as self-study. In this type of learning, there is no communication between the learner and the learner, and the learner receives the educational content through the information that has already been prepared. In this type of learning, information is presented in formats such as CDs or DVDs.

  • Face-to-face e-learning

In this method, the learner and the teacher are physically present in the classroom, with the difference that in these classes, electronic learning tools are also used, such as classes in which PowerPoint, multimedia and… are used to transfer content. Becomes. In this method, communication between people is in the classroom environment, or it is done by phone, therefore, in this method, there is no electronic communication.

  • Asynchronous e-learning

When the learner collects the content (content transfer) and the learner obtains the content (access to the content) there is a delay time between the transfer and the access to the content, so there is an electronic connection but asynchronously. In this way, people can interact with each other through various tools and technologies. This method also uses technologies such as e-mail.

  • Simultaneous e-learning

In this way, the teacher and the learner meet each other virtually during the transfer of content, which is why there is a virtual presence. Also, all technologies including live audio and video and messaging and other technologies used in asynchronous e-learning are used.

  • Hybrid / dual, asynchronous e-learning

This type of e-learning is a combination of face-to-face and non-simultaneous learning. In this method, content is transmitted both through face-to-face classes between teacher and learner and through e-learning technologies when people are not physically present in one place. Electronic communication exists only in the asynchronous method of this model, and on the contrary, it is present, that is, presence only when the transfer of information is face to face.

  • Combined / dual e-learning, simultaneous

This type of learning is also a combination, but with the difference that it is a combination of face-to-face and simultaneous methods. In this method, the learner and the teacher meet each other in both face-to-face and virtual classes. Therefore, there is attendance during the entire transfer and presentation of content, and the meetings take place at the same time and with the participation of the learner and the teacher. Arrives. Electronic communication is also widely and simultaneously used.

In another category, the types of virtual training in terms of the device that can be suitable for it are:

1. Web-based virtual training:

Virtual training in this method is done through the Internet. It can be said that this method is the most common and widespread method and tries to take tests and issue certificates electronically and on the web.

Classrooms, lesson reports, booklets, chat rooms, e-mails, etc. are all stored on the web. Also, due to the flexibility in the way of providing e-learning, the type of training can be designed and used according to your wishes and activities, existing conditions and facilities, etc … So you can have custom features in your implemented system.

2. Virtual computer training:

In virtual e-learning, there is no need to connect to the Internet or network (only in cases such as tests, the Internet is used). In this method, an electronic interface is used to store information and the user uses it by a computer or devices that are used to read the electronic interface. (Such as using training CDs).

3. Virtual education by portable electronic devices:

In this method, portable electronic devices such as iPad, PDA, tablets PC, etc. are used, are usually more limited methods for training with these devices.

4. Virtual learning by mobile phone:

This new method can be included in the previous group, but due to the increasing number of mobile phone owners, this method was called m-learning, and it was placed in the separation category. But using this method requires the provision of appropriate conditions for telecommunications infrastructure.

Many people in the community, especially in big cities, spend a lot of time waiting for vehicles or in traffic, etc. For some time now, people have been taking books with them to make good use of this time. Of course, after a while, the disadvantages were also mentioned, such as the case that ophthalmologists put a lot of emphasis on. They believed that “studying in rough paths is harmful to the eyes.” Study and teaching by voice are more Bob.

However, it is interesting to know that “training that is done by the eyes is more effective.” Designed to mention:

  •  Use animated, still, or video images instead of educational text
  •  Use different sizes for writings according to the texts studied
  • Use educational texts along with recorded audio or music
  • Use of recreational facilities in order to avoid the uniformity of training and fatigue

5. Tutorial by video files

This type of virtual training is used to teach skills or vocational training.

Online education system Due to the ubiquitous place
 of virtual education at home,  today people also have a computer at home. This allows families to easily connect to the Internet and network, and can also use their system as a tool to learn and enhance learning.
The implementation of distance learning courses and in-service courses, which are specific to employees, as well as courses that are done to help train students to prepare for the entrance exam, etc., are also included in this system.

 Virtual education in the educational environment  Today, all educational levels such as vocational schools, high schools, higher education centers, etc. have a site that is equipped with a computer.
These computers are able to network and use the Internet. These sites are designed to create a good learning environment as well as help the teacher convey concepts.

The Kavian Scientific Research Association (KSRA) is a non-profit research organization to provide research / educational services in December 2013. The members of the community had formed a virtual group on the Viber social network. The core of the Kavian Scientific Association was formed with these members as founders. These individuals, led by Professor Siavosh Kaviani, decided to launch a scientific / research association with an emphasis on education.

KSRA research association, as a non-profit research firm, is committed to providing research services in the field of knowledge. The main beneficiaries of this association are public or private knowledge-based companies, students, researchers, researchers, professors, universities, and industrial and semi-industrial centers around the world.

Our main services Based on Education for all Spectrum people in the world. We want to make an integration between researches and educations. We believe education is the main right of Human beings. So our services should be concentrated on inclusive education.

The KSRA team partners with local under-served communities around the world to improve the access to and quality of knowledge based on education, amplify and augment learning programs where they exist, and create new opportunities for e-learning where traditional education systems are lacking or non-existent.
