Abstract

Online educations are gaining more scope due to the busy schedule of working groups and their interest to acquire knowledge in new fields. Working group people find difficult to get admission in top institutions for their interested course due to competition and lack of time flexibility. Regular full-time university affiliated courses become lack of interest for the working group due to outdated curriculum, lack of innovation in teaching, unchanged learning and evaluation environment and lack of industry oriented advanced courses. Some institutions/universities provide short-term online courses for working people, which are liked by many working people due to its new evaluation and learning methods, advanced curriculum and industry oriented subjects. The introduction of mobile wireless communication technology modernization, innovation and globalization are increasingly driving the online education to become ubiquitous, personalized, convenient, and flexible for working groups. In this paper, we discuss based on the location how some short term certification courses can incorporate changes in curriculum. In this paper, we discuss when a particular university introduces some certification courses worldwide, how concepts, regulations or entire subject changes depending on the geographical location. At the time of registration location of the user is accepted from the user. If the registered user changes the location for more than two weeks then that is traced by GPS through the mobile phone and curriculum content changes a little bit. Initially, this is introduced only for some competitive examinations material and short term certification courses related to commerce and political science, which is slightly different depending on the location. This paper discusses how in online short term certification courses, changes in curriculum and innovation in teaching, learning, and evaluation can be implemented for the benefits of working people located in different geographical regions of the world.

Keywords: Location Based Learning, GPS, Certification Courses, Wireless Communication Technology
