The technological tools available on the Axia college library were excellent resources. I was really excited to find these valuable resources due to fact that mostly learning is considered mere transfer of knowledge. But these are extra-textual support to sharpen some of the important aspects of a student’s personality. Communication is not a one way process of speaking only but it also involves active listening. These audio resources will be quite helpful in sharpening my listening faculties and will be helpful in grooming my personality as well.
The auditory experience enriched my learning process and enabled to equip myself with another form of learning. I was used to read printed material in order to acquire knowledge previously. But acquisition of knowledge through this audio really excited me. I think it provided me an insight to locate the true importance of things or the right messages by understanding the intonation of voice. During listening, I closed my eyes in order to concentrate on audio. This enriched my experience as my other faculties were at rest and only my mind was fully active to analyse the content and deduct the right type of messages. Now I can enjoy listening stories anytime anywhere. I am quite positive in using auditory material in future due to its effectiveness and portability.
