For this reason, MAJAN EDUCATION considers the IP address to be personal information.
MAJAN EDUCATION employs software programs that monitor network traffic and detect unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. These programs record the IP addresses of computers that visit this site. They also record the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, and the browsers and operating systems used by visitors. We do not attempt to link this information to the identities of individual users, unless an attempt to damage the site has been detected.
IP addresses of visitors may, on occasion, be anonymized and used by MAJAN EDUCATION to produce statistical reports to allow us to evaluate the geographical origin of visitors to the Bank’s site.
Visitor IP addresses are also recorded by the Google Analytics software installed on the MAJAN EDUCATION website.

Right to Restrict Processing of Personal Information
In some situations, you have the right to require us to restrict the processing of your personal information. We may restrict your personal information by temporarily moving the information to another processing system, making the information unavailable to users, or temporarily removing published information from a website.

If you tell us that you think we are processing your personal information unlawfully, but you do not want the information to be erased, you have the right to require us to restrict the processing of that information.
We will ask you for an explanation about why you think the processing is unlawful and may also ask that you provide evidence to support this view.

Automated Decision Making and Profiling
‘Profiling’ is automated use of personal data held on computer to analyse or predict things which have a legal effect, or other similarly significant effect, on the individual. Examples would include economic situation, health, personal preferences or interests and location. You have the right not to be subject to a solely automated decision (that is, a decision made electronically, with no human intervention), and this may include profiling (although there is no general right to object to profiling).

CANCELLATION, REFUNDAND AND RETURN POLICY
Payments for online lessons and e-learning are final and there are no refunds or returns permitted.
1. Is eLearning Really Effective or Simply an Attempt to Digitalize Training?
Many people consider online training to be a useful solution in terms of scalability rather than effectiveness. Somehow it is ingrained in us that classroom training with instructors and face-to-face interactions is more effective, even if not very convenient. However, this idea that one training mode is inherently better than another may not be true. Effective learning has more to do with how you build the experience by using the assets you have than whether training is happening in a classroom or online.
According to Catherine Lombardozzi, “Learning theorists and researchers have come to understand that we don’t so much ‘teach’ as we create an environment in which people can learn”. Consequently, how effective the eLearning solution will be depending entirely on how good your instructional design strategy is in engaging learners and how aligned your course content is to the learning objectives.
An important point to note is that though online training very effective, in many situations it cannot replace Instructor-led Training (ILT). blended learning solutions with both ILT and online learning in the mix often serve to ensure an effective learning experience.
2. Does Online Training Really Save Time and Money?
It’s widely assumed that anything involving technology is inevitably expensive. Though this is a very relevant question within and outside L&D, the fact is, both the amount of time and money depend entirely on the duration of the course, its level of complexity, and the format used.
Videos and audio podcasts are easy to make, don’t need much time to produce, and are relatively inexpensive. Game-based designs and simulations on the other hand, involve high level interactivities, take more time to develop, and cost more as well.
In the larger scheme of things, online learning is more cost effective than ILT, especially in businesses with a global presence. With online training, you can do away with recurring costs for the training venue, instructor fee, employee accommodation, traveling, and refresher training every few months.
3. How can eLearning Enhance Knowledge Retention?
Post-training knowledge retention is one of the measures of training effectiveness. So, what is it about eLearning that lets learners beat the forgetting curve and helps retain knowledge? An effective and engaging online training program is a mix of the right instructional strategy – using bite-sized microlearning modules and providing spaced training over a period of time.
Effective Instructional Design Strategies ensure learners stay engaged throughout the course. The most popular strategies are storytelling, scenarios, guided learning, gamification, and game-based designs. Each strategy offers learners a unique experience that’ll help them understand and retain the information they acquire.
Microlearning involves small and focused learning modules, each focusing on a single learning objective. The idea underlying this training methodology is that small information chunks are more easily retained than longer eLearning. Microlearning modules provide specific focused information without beating around the bush. They also avoid the monotony of longer courses.
Spaced Learning offers training at regular intervals across a time period. Knowledge is more easily retained when it is served at intervals to learners with breaks in between, than overwhelming them with too much information at once.
4. Are LMS’s Days Numbered?
No, not at all! LMS’s still are an important aspect of eLearning training programs. It’s just that they are not the only players in the market now. An increasing number of management systems such as Learning Content Management Systems (LCMS) and Learning Record Stores (LRS) are being used by organizations with or without an LMS. According to the 2018 eLearning Guild report, two-thirds of their respondents used some form of social knowledge management and talent management platform alongside their LMS.
With the emergence of new eLearning technical standards such as and cmi5, it has become necessary for organizations to opt for LMSs with -suite LRS or incorporate an external LRS to work along with the LMS. While these new management platforms include many different features, none of them offer tracking, , and reporting on the scale an LMS does. Moreover, LMS’s too are evolving and offering in-built or plug-in options for most eLearning related operations.
5. Are New-age eLearning Trends a Necessity or a Fad?
L&D is abuzz with the ‘new-age’ eLearning trends – Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality, and Virtual Reality. Agreed, these are very high-end technological solutions, but are they really relevant for your organization at the present time?
Whether AI or AR/VR, incorporating these trends in online learning is as complex as it is expensive. And very few of your organizational training needs actually need AI or AR/VR. They also need to be custom designed (needing more than just courseware developers’ expertise) and can’t be developed using rapid authoring tools.
Adobe Captivate is one among very few authoring tools which can develop courses with low level AR functionality. Artificial Intelligence needs large scale data mining to work and at present, is functional only in a limited capacity in adaptive engines.
While these new age learning trends can seem very pervasive in L&D, at present, most organizational training hasn’t evolved enough to need them.
