Authors : A. Balavivekanandhan and S. Arulchelvan

Abstract: Many attempts have been made to impart literacy to illiterate adults all over the world. The computer assisted e-Learning module developed by the State Resource Centre for Non Formal and Adult Education (SRC), Tamil Nadu in collaboration with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) was one among them. The present study focusses on the content analysis of e-Learning to gauge the module’s effectiveness. The e-Learning module is analysed in two major categories, the audio-visual based and the text based featues. Each and every unit of the e-Learning module was analysed quanitatively and its merits and demerits were found out. This research highlights some merits like the well-integrated graphics and animation, attractive and learner-frienly, voice-over and the easily readable size of the letters. Regarding the demerits there is no effective feed-back mechanism, picture oriented learning and lack of exercises for improving the writing skill of the learners. This study will help us to prepare a new need-based e-Learning module in the literacy field for lifelong learning.
