The Future of Education is Online
Contrary to popular belief, the concept of eLearning is not new. It dates to 1924 when the first testing machine was invented which allowed students to test themselves in a classroom. Since then, though online education has been a preferred mode of imparting and attaining knowledge for many, it never got the due importance it deserved. Cut to 2020, and a global sweeping pandemic urged the need of online education and most people realised what they were missing out on.
The benefits of online education are vast and varied. With a few clicks of the button, anyone can access knowledge, learn a technical skill, enhance their mettle, or attain self-improvement. To put it simply, physical presence does not matter anymore, everything you need to study is at your fingertips with the aid of gadgets and connectivity.
For students young and old who have access to the right technology, learning online is effective in numerous ways. Research proves that students retain 25-60% more material when learning online compared to only 8-10% in a classroom. Also, e-learning requires 40-60% less time to learn than in a traditional brick and mortar setting because students can learn at their own pace; developing in-depth knowledge of their preferred subjects or skipping the concepts they are not interested in.
Online courses offer the promise of access regardless of where people live or what time they can participate, potentially redefining educational opportunities. Through artificial intelligence, they provide optimal course pacing and content to fit each student’s needs and thereby improve educational quality and learning. The convenience and flexibility of online learning can also run parallel with a career as it can be done during your spare time. By taking online courses, especially from reputable platforms, essential qualifications can be gained which can be used to improve your career prospects.
There are multiple platforms which offer fantastic opportunities to learn online, and the industry predicted to be worth more than USD$25 billion by 2025. Convenience is everything in the modern world and being able to learn on the go, on a smartphone or tablet, has also seen a rise in its popularity.
