Highlights of Online Learning
What exactly is online learning?
With online-learning or online education, you can have several advantages. Three of the main differences are that you can study whenever it suits your schedule, from anywhere and for a fraction of the costs of an on-campus degree programme. You receive all the study material you need online and interact through the online platform with your tutors.
Who can benefit from online learning?
Whether you are a school leaver just starting your career, someone with family obligations, or a professional with a busy schedule, you can take advantage of it. But online learning is not just convenient; it also becomes an integral part of a successful career. In the past, a student earned the knowledge that lasted a lifetime in the beginning. Today, according to the Financial Times, with the fast pace of progress, it is essential to stay on top of new developments. Furthermore, gaining knowledge combined with on-the-job experience can give your career an additional boost.
Through online learning, you can be in constant touch with your tutors. While on-campus studies restrict interaction to a few hours per week, the ability to ask for clarification or advice anytime can greatly improve your understanding of the subject matter.
The virtual learning environment (VLE) lets you communicate with your fellow students. Whether you need feedback or want to discuss a subject, your colleagues are by your side.
No longer do you have to create a library of hefty books. All you need – research papers, e-books, videos, presentations – are readily available online through the VLE. All just a few clicks or touches away.
