The concept of eLearning has completely changed the way we perceived education. The days of chalk and board are almost gone. The students, as well as educational institutes, seek a more convenient method of studying, which has been fulfilled by online education. Further, as the COVID-19 pandemic has created a hullabaloo in the entire world, confining people to their homes, online learning is probably the best way to pass the storm without compromising on your education.
Let’s delineate a few good reasons why eLearning may be the best option for people struggling with the current situation, as well as in the future.
You don’t have to leave your homes.
Never did we realize that coming in contact with other people can be deadly to us, right? But it is today. Hence, leaving the safety of your homes to get educated is no more an option, leaving but one choice – online education. Several educational institutes in Australia have already started imparting online classes to the students, who need to complete their course on time. Whether you’re looking for a primary maths specialist or a graduate-level science professor, you can get both within the comforts of your home with online tuitions. Another organization well-prepared for the disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic was the Australian Christian College who has been offering students the flexibility of campus and online distance education courses for several years now and their popularity continues to grow.
No more traffic and being late for classes
Every one of us has faced it at some point in time. Being late for classes is not only embarrassing but also hazardous, as you may miss some important parts of your lectures. This doesn’t apply for online classes, as you don’t have to brace the traffic and commute long distances to attend your classes on time. Set the alarm for your online class, make sure you have a seamless internet connection, and you’ll be good to go.
No more destroying paper
The entire world is seeking ways to eliminate the use of paper, as it leads to increased deforestation and other environmental issues. eLearning is one such method, where you don’t need soft copies of study materials, as everything is provided online. You may have a notebook, of course, but that’s negligible compared to the number of textbooks and paper notes that you may have gathered in your regular classes.
Faster delivery of lessons
Online tuitions cover the lessons quickly, as there are minimum distractions and maximum attentiveness. Some courses may also get covered within a single learning session, thus saving a lot of time for self-studying.
High convenience in learning
There are no rules, and no classroom decorum needs to be maintained for education provided online. You can sit at your desk in your pyjamas, with a bowl of noodles and get your lessons without any hassle. And it’s also quite an informal learning process.
Wrapping it up
The COVID-19 outbreak has unsettled everyone’s lives, but you need not feel disheartened. Remember that you are not alone in this, and just as the whole world is suffering together, we will get out of this soon, that too together. Just continue with your studies and make sure you do them properly so that when the schools open, you don’t feel like an outcast.
