Abstract

eLearning has become indispensable in making lectures from experts accessible to a wide student audience. Current eLearning solutions offer many ways to re-create the teaching environment in a remote location. They focus on recreating the elements that make up the teaching side. In this paper we identify the components of a teaching environment and the factors that constitute a conducive learning environment for students. We identify the common methods of teaching side reconstruction and conduct a study to evaluate the effect of each on the learning outcome on these factors. We analyse the network and computational performance of these methods and arrive at a most optimal method to use in a eLearning session.
