Rapid advancements in technology have accelerated the growth of online learning, otherwise known as e-learning. E-learning has made great strides in terms of quality, ease of accessibility, and use. Therefore, it is suitable for all levels of education, from early childhood education to doctoral studies and all levels in between.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, where most learning institutions have been forced to transition to 100% online learning, the majority of learning institutions have introduced and reinforced their e-learning platforms to facilitate the continuity of education. The movement to online learning during this period is a strong indicator that e-learning will, in the future, play an even more integral part of learning at all levels of education.
Resources for online education
E-learning is impactful at all levels of education. It provides the convenience of tailoring the learner’s educational experience to their schedule. Additionally, with the advancements made to online learning, e-learning only differs marginally from traditional learning because there are numerous resources available to enable effective learning. These resources include teacher-student interaction, peer-peer interaction, online discussion forums, e-books, e-journals, videos, virtual classes, tests, and assignments.
Across all levels of education, online learning can be more effective than traditional methods of learning due to three main reasons. Firstly, e-learning uses multimedia content, thus facilitating extensive learning. Secondly, online classes are designed to be more engaging through constant assessments, discussions, and assignments. This makes the student more focused on their studies. Thirdly, online learning is more affordable than traditional methods, thereby allowing greater access to learning opportunities to people from different walks of life.
