The world of education has changed dramatically over the last year, with the distinctive rise of e-learning or online learning.
But even before the pandemic and lockdown restrictions, there was a global growth and adoption of education technology and online learning.
But how effective is online learning, and what are the benefits?
Convenience and flexibility top the list of reasons for students opting for an online programme rather than on campus, according to global research. Being able to advance your career without too much disruption in your daily schedule is also one of the top benefits of online learning for students and their employers.
Students also recognised the following benefits:
Cost effectiveness: It covers a lot of savings as there are no additional costs for transportation and handbooks. You’ll save money on petrol and vehicle maintenance, but most importantly, earning an online qualification saves you time that you can use to study and take exams in the comfort of your home. In most instances, the study fees are also more competitive than traditional education institutions.
Accessibility: Online course material can be accessed 24 hours, every day.
Students control study time: Students may not have to sit for long periods of time. Lessons can be paused when needed. You can learn at your own pace.
Geographic Flexibility: As you don’t have to attend classes at a specific venue, you have the flexibility to complete your studies from any location, from Boksburg to Bellville.
Stay relevant in a quickly changing world: In an online learning course, materials can be updated quickly and easily in real time. When new information and advances in technology become available, rather than having to update and reprint expensive and environmentally unfriendly textbooks, online information can simply be added or updated to keep information continuously fresh and current.
