Citing that the High Court has opened up a link for e-filing of non urgent matters, both fresh and pending, the letter claims that the said facility can also be extended for district courts. Mr Sharma submits that it is uncertain as to how long this pandemic would continue. Hence, as a fraternity, one has to learn to live with it while following social distancing and other security measures. Allowing e-filing for ordinary matters in the district courts would be beneficial for lawyers appearing before such courts who are already burdened with so many fresh filings and are waiting for the lockdown to be lifted. The letter states that: ‘The filing during lockdown by taking recourse to the link generated will be taken up for scrutiny only after the lockdown is lifted, unless otherwise directed. Once these filings are taken up for scrutiny, the concerned Advocates or litigant(s) in person will be informed as to whether or not the filings contained any objection(s) as the same measure adopted by Delhi High Court.’ Mr Sharma further suggests the court that Advocates and litigants in person can take recourse to the Designated Counter(s) of e-filing set up for this purpose in the District Courts i.e. Tis Hazari, Patiala House, Karkardooma, Rohini, Dwarka, Saket and Rouse Avenue Court. During the subsistence of lockdown, scanning facility for the aforesaid purpose would be available, free of cost, at all the aforesaid Designed Counters.

Faith-fuelled learningOn 4 Jun 2002 in Personnel Today Author Martyn Sloman says it is far too early to judge the impact ofe-learning. With training set to betransformed, the best is yet to comeOver the past 18 months, scepticism has grown about the impact of e-learning– defined by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development as”learning that is delivered, enabled or mediated by electronic technologyfor the explicit purpose of training in organisations”. So far, e-learning has been inextricably linked with dotcom mania. Investorswill not need to be reminded that just over two years ago, in April 2000, theUS Nasdaq index began a fall that cut its value by two-thirds and had acalamitous short-term effect on every other market. Inevitably, a more measuredview of the growth and profitability of e-learning has followed as more maturejudgments are being made on investments in new technology. Investor reaction is short term and notoriously fickle. What is moreimportant is the progress of e-learning in corporate organisations. What is themessage from those who are implementing e-learning? Here the news is not goodand adds fuel to the growing doubts. However, to inject a positive note, mostthoughtful commentators agree that the long-term rise of e-learning isinevitable. Over time it will transform training in organisations. Let’s start with this bad news. Every year the American Society of Trainingand Development (ASTD) publishes a survey based on comments made at itsbenchmark forum. The latest survey shows that little movement has occurred inthe amount of training delivered through learning technology (or e-learning).It has remained steady at less than 10 per cent. Our recent CIPD annualtraining survey of training managers showed no evidence of an e-learningexplosion in the UK. Less than one-third of UK training managers had introducede-learning and of those almost three-quarters described their use as ‘a little’.Dig a little deeper and there is evidence of considerable progress. What hashappened is that many early adopters have had unfortunate experiences. For themthe learning curve has been sharp. However, the potential contribution frome-learning to business performance remains immense. The same sample in the ASTDsurvey who reported a plateau in their use of e-learning are confidentlypredicting future growth. Their best estimate is that more than 20 per cent oftraining time will be delivered by e-learning in 2003. But a clear idea of what can be achieved through e-learning is essential.Under the right circumstances it is possible to save costs: this particularlyapplies where there is a geographically spread workplace, high motivation (orcompulsion!) for the learner to participate, and a heavy information orknowledge content to the learning. Obvious examples are modules concerned withinformation technology and all the evidence suggests that this is wheree-learning has had its early impact. When we move beyond this advance, e-learning is more difficult to chart.Much progress is taking place in global organisations that need to distributeinformation to a large workforce. Ernst & Young is introducing a system it has developed in-house: the EY LearningConnection. Over time this will give 80,000 staff worldwide the opportunity toaccess current information on changes in the tax system and developments inaudit methodology. The ability to deliver a similar service anywhere in theworld to its global clients could give the firm a significant businessadvantage. Other large organisations are beginning to integrate e-learning with theircritical business activities and think beyond organisational boundaries indelivering training. They are working across their supply chain. Cisco is generally accepted as one of the more advanced in its commitment toe-learning. It aims to make 80 per cent of its training available throughe-learning and 20 per cent through instruction, as part of a general strategywhere managers and staff can obtain all human services through similar screensor portals. Most interestingly, in 1997, Cisco established a ‘NetworkingAcademy’. This makes instructor-led, web-based training available throughinstitutions to individuals and will address the shortage of networkengineering specialists. Ingenious minds will find ingenious solutions and, in time, e-learning willovercome barriers that have become evident. One further caveat is necessary,however, before concluding that all will be well. It is simply this: e-learningis about learning, not technology. We must never forget that it is thelearners’ acceptance of new methods of gaining knowledge and skill in theworkplace that will determine progress. This is the real learning curve that all organisations must negotiate.However, all the underlying indications are that e-learning will pass through aturbulent adolescence and enter a new age of maturity. It is hard to say whoand what will succeed.
