If you give it some thought, e-learning is not as bad as you would think. In fact, it is what kids say these days, “cool”! Considering how education has evolved over the recent years, I do not believe that anything has posed limits over the process of learning. While you may be of the opinion that technology has made things expensive, you are wrong! Here is why:
Technology and E learning – Putting the “Cool” in Education under a Budget
Sometimes, fun and excitement can speed up the learning and retention process. If you have never heard about it, just pop into a university today and ask the administration of the different methods of learning they use.
Today, classroom environments do not just rely on hard copies and blackboards. Technology has taken over classrooms and the results are positive. Learning can be done through projections, audios, videos, pictures, real-world simulations and augmented learning techniques. These various methods have not only helped students test their abilities and skills, but also motivate them to incorporate curiosity and creativity to come up with a better understanding.
Moreover, technology has made learning portable. Accessing an online portal through your mobile or tablet is a great way to catch up on your classes. People who study part-time are more interested in flexible learning solutions than rigid university schedules because they have no means of making the ends meet. Furthermore, e-learning also allows avatar creation to immerse the students and take every learning objective as a milestone they would want to achieve, similar to a quest in a game. All of these innovations have not only made education cheap, but also accessible remotely.
Maintaining the cool factor in e-learning, and that too under a budget, is a challenge that the tech enthusiasts around the world have accepted. There is more to e-learning than what is offered today, and it is going to blow your minds. Some of it is already here but not that common; however, it will be, sooner than you think!
Here is what the future holds to make e-learning cool:
- Collaborative – Transforming the learning experience.
Yes… It is no longer a buzzword. Every educational institution or workplace has increasingly been promoting a collaborative environment. Now, it is not just limited to Google, Facebook or Yahoo, but expanded to private networks that have found that communication at the same level can also help solve many issues related to learning. Now, wouldn’t it be cool to get help from an experienced manager in Europe while you face technical issues with your system in Asia?
- M-learning and E-learning will be constantly regenerated.
With the technology moving fast, it is now easier to create up-to-date content that is in line with the latest trends. Moreover, systematically updating modules to keep them current and educating students on the latest challenges at hand will make e-learning more interesting and relevant.
- Augmented Reality
Learning in a packed classroom is not considered learning today. In fact, institutions are now moving towards augmented reality in education where holographic images and real-world projects can be observed more closely to improve understanding. Now, even if you are not physically in a classroom, and chilling at the beach, you can still attend an important lecture and will feel as if you were physically there.
- Technology will become the Need
While technology has already made its way into our lives and now every education tycoon focuses on technology to attract students, it should not be a one-time thing. Technology, by no means, should hinder the learning experience because it is not as enticing as it should be. In fact, technology should foster students to heighten their awareness, attitudes and abilities. Therefore, technology will become the need and not just a tool of attraction for students.
- Stronger Blends
If you are still in search for the cool factor in e-learning, it is already here! Now universities use e-learning and still provide affordable education that will prepare students for a tech-driven world.
