"The most important principle for designing lively eLearning is to see eLearning design not as information design but as designing an experience." - Cathy Moore

I Know you get to hear many quotes from your friends, family, colleagues and social media, obviously, right?

The question here arises whether you implement these principles/quotes in life or not; if not, why so…

I know it's hard to digest, but I follow the above quote in my life.

Like many of you, I also had doubts when I first heard of online teaching-learning from my college professor when they announced that the first year of my college would be online.

I know you guys are thinking poorly of me right, same is the feeling with me. Like how can I trust the digital learning system?

However, after researching, I discovered that "e-learning" is a cutting-edge method of immersive learning and education. It does not necessitate our physical presence in the institute. In light of the current pandemic condition, e-learning may be beneficial.

And now I have completed my first year of studies, and here I know it is for REAL!

If you are somewhat like me or thinking of doing some courses online, which can be beneficial for you in these unprecedented times or the future, this article will be helpful for you.

Top 7 benefits of online learning

We know the benefits of online learning can be enormous, but I'm going to share the top 7 benefits that will help you decide better.

Benefit #1: More Flexibility

As a student, I am aware that certain subjects are incredibly challenging and necessitate extra effort.

Otherwise, the odds of failing increase!

And we know when we are sitting in a physics class, we don't have that much flexibility and resources to go back and attend the same courses, but with the advent of new technologies, we can attend the same lecture online again and again.

Unfortunately, teachers are constrained by their schedules, and you have a small amount of time to grasp the material

All these barriers don't exist with the digital classroom setup. You get as much time as you want to watch the recorded sessions until and unless you are clear with the concepts.

Benefit #2: Learn at Your Own Pace

This happens to me a lot like a teacher is writing something on the board, and suddenly he erases the content. I'm halfway down the lane, and when I look up again, damn, It all vanishes.

After the class, I have to ask my friends for the notes.

I know this is not the right feeling, but here with the online learning management system (LMS), you don't need to worry about it.

You can watch the same lecture again and again.

As a student, you can get the best benefits from the lecture resources and better understand the material.

Benefit #3: Access to a Wide Range of E-Content

We have a limited amount of resources available with us when we are sitting in a physical class; we have a notebook and some specific books or papers related to the topic which is going on in the class.

But here, digital learning serves you several options.

You can have more relevant and fact-based e-content.

You can get personalized e-notes on the same notes from different authors and many more.

You can make your archives from where to study and by which professor or institute.

Benefit #4: Mock Tests & Online Assessments

If you want to score well in the final examination, it is essential to have prior experience of sitting in that same environment so as not to make any mistakes.

Digital learning gives you a plethora of sample sets of examinations to check your preparation for the final analysis.

Practice enough so that you can get good marks - without facing any technical problems.

So, a learning management system (LMS) with mock tests and exams will help you much better than physical classes.

Benefit #5: Keep track of your comprehension level

One thing that cannot be done in physical classes is learning stuff according to your level of understanding.

Whereas Online learning provides you with the option of “based upon your understanding, you can track your growth, knowledge and practice”.

You also have the option to categorize your progress like:

  • Beginner
  • Intermediate
  • Advance

Benefit #6: Benefits Environment

Let's not be selfish and also think of nature.

Already we are suffering a lot.

It's the best time for us to become more environmentally conscious.

Because of online learning, the need for paperwork becomes absolutely zero. All sessions have moved from the physical classroom to online & most of the resources become digital.

Don't you think it's one of the best benefits of online learning?

Benefit #7: Technical Skills Updates

Online learning added a skill to your resume that is Microsoft office. Most of the work is done in Office due to the digitalization of education in this pandemic.

Not only students get to learn new skills, so many professors, as other technicians, also learn them.

Most corporations are working from home. It is essential to collaborate remotely with efficiency, and these skills help you.

There are so many communication tools coming up like Skype, Dropbox, Slack, basecamp etc.

Over time, it fosters good teacher-student connectivity and interaction, resulting in favourable learning outcomes.

To Sum UP

These seven benefits not only help you in learning but also help you to be a disciple in life and how to overcome sudden difficulties in life.

This pandemic shows us that we need to be prepared for changes, and that is how we evolved.
