E-Learning: How It’s Beating The Conventional Learning Methods

Since the advent of internet, the world has ridden a juggernaut of success and rapid advancement. Every field and aspect of human life has witnessed massive transformations, especially education which is undeniably the most important aspect that enables a society to develop and advance.

Among its many boons, the internet became a medium of education which left the older and conventional methods of learning and teaching far behind. E-learning has become a strong channel which is helping the masses in accessing higher education in various fields. Here are five reasons why it is beating the conventional learning methods.

  1. Wider Reach

The greatest advantage of e-learning is that it can reach a far greater audience than the conventional methods. Being a web-based medium of study, e-learning can reach anyone who has access to the internet. Classroom learning –in no way- can match the wide audience of e-learning as it is not restricted by any limits in terms of learners.

  1. Better Way To Teach

E-learning uses a lot of interactive and audio-visual tools which make learning much more interesting than classroom learning. Apart from arousing interest in the learners, it also makes the activity of learning more effective as these tools enable learners to understand the concepts faster and better.

  1. Less Resources Required

In order to set up a classroom, a lot of financial and other resources are required. On the contrary, an education portal won’t require anything else than technical skills to set it up and a working internet connection. With fewer resources, e-learning can educate a huge number of people than any other method. This also means that it enables people with lower economic background to access education and pursue any field of learning that they are interested in.

  1. 24/7 Accessibility

Another great trait of e-learning is that it can be accessed from anywhere at any time. It is neither restricted by geographical boundaries nor by time limits. One can learn whatever they want to learn at any time from any place. This is something which could not have been dreamt about in conventional methods of learning.

  1. Customised And Unlimited Learning

Along with the possibilities of learning anytime; anywhere, e-learning also provides the possibility of learning anything. Thanks to the internet, a learner can connect to any educational field and get information about it. Another feature of e-learning is that it’s unlimited in all its aspects. You can learn literally everything on a given topic or subject and access various books and educational resources to know more about it.

Recognising its importance, many top universities have established e-learning portals and platforms to give educational access to the masses through the World Wide Web. Universities such as Yale and Harvard have dedicated portals where learners can educate themselves by accessing various study materials. The world has realized the potential of e-learning and is harnessing it on a huge scale to spread education and make it more accessible.
