E-learning has completely transformed the method of imparting knowledge and learning to students. Unlike the traditional chalk and board method for teaching, e-learning has made teaching and learning much easier, simpler and much more effective.
After graduation, we see a huge amount of fresh graduates landing into with petty amount of money as salaries, this is certainly very low to pay the rents, bills and all the miscellaneous expenses. This is the situation of a lot of youngsters in India because the difference lies in the skills which students learn during the graduation and skills which are required for the job.
Absence of proper training and essential skills was a major problem back 4-5 years, but not anymore, when you can have leading professionals teaching you at the oddest hour of the day and this is possible by the burst of numerable e-learning platforms that are easily available for the students. The best universities in the world are offering their best programs at the minimal cost and also for zero charges, only if you are willing to learn.
E-learning uses electronic techniques for teaching, while a student can sit in a chair or can access the knowledge and information from their home, now we shall look onto the numerous benefits of e-learning:
1. The flexibility of time and place:
One of the utmost benefits of e-learning is, one can learn from anywhere, not necessarily from any classroom and at any point in time, whether day or night. Not only students but office goers can also access to the information and upgrade their skills, housewives can also learn techniques and different skills with the flexibility of their time. This completely depends upon their availability and comfort, while a lot of people prefer to take the classes on weekends.
2. Lectures can be taken as many times as the student wants:
Unlike classroom teaching where the teacher repeats the concepts and methods for a maximum of a couple of times, with the facility of e-learning, you can learn and review the teaching and the content as many times as possible, this is especially needed at the time of the revision of the concepts. With this, even if you missed a lecture, you can access through the recording.
3. Access to updated content:
A prime benefit of learning online is that it synchronizes with modern learners. This enables to access the updated content.
Most of the e-learning platforms offer certificates to their learners at the end of the program. The course can probably be free to take but there is a fee for the certificate and one can only receive the certificate after completing all the assignments of the course. One can learn with their own pace but the certificates can be received after the completion of the course.
eLearning enables educators to receive a higher degree of coverage to communicate the message in a consistent way for their target audience. This ensures that all learners receive the exact same type of training with this learning mode.
6. Budget & pocket-friendly:
E-learning is much cost-effective as compared to the traditional forms of learning and education. The sole reason for the minimal cost is because learning through this method is much easier and quicker. A lot of time is reduced with respect to travel, accommodation, training, course materials and others.
Apart from that, the minimal price is also because of the comfort of delivering the lectures from home or any suitable place. Also when you are studying from your own place you are relieved from paying the travel expenses.
Certainly, eLearning will be one of the most leading spectrums of the coming educational world, it will acquire more learners and educators than the traditional classroom course, though we must acknowledge that the traditional classroom teaching has its own importance and values and certainly, it is the basis of imparting education, but eLearning is making imparting education and learning much easy, affordable and time-efficient.
