We all know that the world is changing very fast, same is the case with the education field. Both trainers and students have to face a different kinds of challenges every day than they used to about 5-10 years back. Following is my take on online Study.
Convenience in Online Study
You can attend these courses at your own pace. Most courses are self-paced and can be done during your spare time. If you are a fast learner, you can complete it early. If you need a little more time, you are free to go through the details ‘one last time’, it’s your choice.
Comfortable while studying from your own comfort
Only internet access is required. The courses can be attended in the comfort of home, during office lunchtime, the gym or even when lying down before going to sleep.
Ease of Communication
Or I would say a new and more complex type of communication. Assuming that you already have a Facebook account or a Quora account, collaboration with other students and professionals around the world is just one click away. A Skype call (or similar) can substitute for a face-to-face meeting so the instructor and the candidate can sit down and discuss topics that are best-explained face-to-face.
Learning a new course or skill has never been cheaper or more accessible. In addition to saving commute time, you can choose the location of your learning.
You will need to be self-disciplined. Even though the entire course is self-paced, setting your own goals for completing the courses in a timely manner is the best approach. Once you have gotten yourself geared up, these skills are priceless on a day to day situations.
Enhance your Resume
The addition of online courses to your Resume’ will greatly enhance your image as a potential candidate and your chances of successfully landing an interview for a very simple reason that it shows that you are a self-motivated individual who is committed to continuous improvement.
Usually, three types of support are available to online course candidates, which together surpass the assistance a student usually gets during classroom training.
2. Community Forums
3. Direct Trainer Support
At the end; yes it may at this point not give you a complete alternative for bachelor’s and master’s education, but the days are not far away when education will completely become mobile in its true sense.
