There was a discussion where E-learning, a social media website that is specialise in learning for education institution reduces educators’ productivity and might replace educators in near future. In the recent article by The Star, Dr. Cheah, stated that E-learning improves both productivity and will not replace educators. With the support of Western Social Science Association and the study carried out in a Malaysian university indicated that it’s important for us to understand the students’ responds and recognition of using technology in learning and greatly affect student’s learning outcomes. I would agree on the statement as it indeed improved productivity of both students and educators since I myself experienced first-handed. Although there are many things to improve such as interface and functionality, it definitely served its purpose.
