Continuous monitoring is a holistic, constant measurement of a student's performance and interests. An integral part of traditional classroom-based education, continuous monitoring is largely missing in 'linear' e-learning systems. Continuous monitoring tools must form the core of Learning Management Systems (LMS) if e-learning is to develop. This is because technology-enabled continuous monitoring tools can introduce transaction (the give and take inherent in any instructional process), assessment (learner evaluation that can create dynamic learning profiles based on the continuous evaluation of a learner's performance), and quality management (the creation of a standardized quality metrics or measurement criteria for the quality of a course).An effective e-learning course must, therefore, track student performance data, and enable dynamic adaptivity and customization of the course material in a manner that is transparent to the student.
