The pandemic has impacted most of us adversely and taken a toll on our work and life routines, leaving us with some unplanned and unproductive time. For some, it is a break and for some of us, it is an opportunity to explore, learn and up-skill ourselves.
With the fast adoption of education-technology, knowledge and experiences are now being shared at a larger scale than ever before. According to Forbes, The e-learning global market will be US$ 350Bn by 2030, making e-learning an integral part of our lives in the ‘new normal’ majorly because of the following points:-
#1. Self-Paced Learning
The best time to learn is ‘when I want to learn’; and this time is different for everyone. E-Learning solves this ‘on-demand learning’ requirement of the learners. Most of the good e-learning programs have a defined time range to complete the course. This enables the learners to learn at ease and still keep up with the fellow learners/group, this is being provided effectively by SkillUVA.
#2. Learner-Centred Education
The modern learning methods are learner-centred. If you are interested and ready to learn a new skill, you can pick up a course of your choice to up-skill yourself. This method focuses on ‘what you want to do’ and not ‘what others want you to do’.
#3. Simple, Effective and More Engaging
With education technology being evolved, the approach of creating the learning content with videos, podcast, games and other activities makes the entire learning experience more effective and engaging. And the availability of learning content ‘on-the-go’ keeps the learners engaged. You can access the content as many times as you want and when you need it.
#4. Better Retention For Most Training Topics
Since the e-learning is self-paced and engaging, the retention of key information is generally high. Moreover, e-learning time has reduced the learning time by almost 60%. Bits of the ‘Gyan’ are easier to remember than trying to mug-up the whole book. Therefore, studies have proved that learners remember more through e-learning than traditional instructor-led courses.
#5. Provides a Risk-Free Environment
Many times we have not contributed to a lesson, discussion or an assessment because of the ‘fear of failure’. E-Learning provides a risk-free environment for us to experiment and try. Most of the good e-learning programs are designed to help the learners understand where and why they went wrong. So after a learner fails, he/she can go back and try again without the fear of getting embarrassed in front of the fellow learners.
The agility of e-learning courses and platforms make learning tailor-made like never before. And these advantages have certainly made e-learning popular, significant and an integral part of our lives. However, choosing the right platform to learn and up-skill is very important.
