It comprises of Instructions delivered through electronic media including the Internet, Intranet, Extranet, Satellite broadcasts, audio/video tapes, interactive television and CD-ROM.
In this paper researcher disseminate the findings of his experiences, regarding his work related with “effectiveness of an e-learning package on Social studies teaching method”. In present age when each and every field of society is related with ICT, it is important to use this technology for teacher trainer. It has came to see that students those who are studying in ODL mode, are not getting effective study materials by their accrediting institutions. Although material given to them is created very carefully but there is still need to improve it. There is lack of interaction between the learners and their mentors. To fulfilling the needs of ODL mode learner’s e-learning package is created in teaching methods, their need analysis is conducted. The intention behind this study is that a lot of work is conducted on various aspects related with e-learning but most of them are related with technological or science backgrounds, humanities related subjects are still in negligence. Teacher training is area where everyone have to need improve their skill lifelong to become an effective teacher, but unfortunately the learners of ODL mode is not getting right path for this sake, so e-learning package is created and researcher tries to find out its effectiveness, and if it found effective then it can be used in further class as a resource.The objective of this study is to test effectiveness of constructed e-learning package, in terms of their theoretical knowledge (achievement) and their reaction towards e-learning package. To fulfilling objectives of study hypothesis is created that “Achievement of user of e-learning package is better than the achievement of non user trainees” this is further expanded in context of all six teaching method which is taken in the study.The Major findings based on study are – e-learning package is found highly effective in lecture, Demonstration, Programmed instruction, Field trip and CAI method of teaching.
