Countries all around the world are fighting a battle against one common enemy. After one long year, we can finally see the rising curve flattening in some countries and embracing the new normal, whereas some countries are still struggling to curb the number of cases. Amid all this, one great thing that has emerged and is here to stay is distance learning. Years ago, people would not have thought if they were told that one could get proper education from one end of the world while sitting at another end of the country. Due to the pandemic, schools and universities have opened up more to students when it comes to distance learning. Earlier only a few courses were deemed fit to be pursued via distance learning. But now, the pandemic has put distance learning under the spotlight.
Communication is the key
Online learning can be as productive as offline learning; it can be equally deemed fit for every type of course with the proper technology. With its self-paced curriculum, students can learn at their own pace and even dig deeper into the subject. Students also tend to ask more and clear their doubts by going back to the recorded lectures. The level of understanding of the subject increases by a large margin.
No Geographical Restrictions
With restrictions put on everyone's freedom to move and attend in-person classes, the world came to a standstill for students as well as teachers. But with online learning and access to technology has changed the scenario for all. Students can quickly get access to education while sitting in the comfort of their homes. Indeed knowledge has a new destination, one that does not require a zip code.
Save more, Learn more
There are several courses available online which are free of cost. And can be accessed with basic technology and an internet connection. Many institutions provide these types of free courses. And many started last year due to the pandemic, so those who wish to continue studying should not halt their education during the lockdown. This also leads to the fact that one can attend school remotely, so there is no need to spend on commutation and local accommodation near the school campus.
The Future of Learning
It's not just the students who are having a new experience with this distance learning program. The teachers, too, are facing a massive change in their curriculum and style of teaching. Many teachers have altered their teaching style; if earlier they were not able to share extra information with the students, now they are able to via recorded classes. Classes can be viewed time and again. This has helped the students to grasp more in less time.
