Entrepreneurs To Inaugurate Online Learning Institutes For Better Future.

Online learning, as the educators are projecting it, is the next big thing in the domain of education and in near future, it will shed its alternative tag and going to be an essential part of the entire learning system. This is perhaps the most significant change in educational ecosystem since learning itself became the core engine of human development.

As technology is gaining its ground in every aspect of our life education also got its intuitive touch of technology and became more and more available to the aspired learners who are in need of active learning or learning which is bases on hands-on experience needed to upgrade and upskill. And this ‘need’ of learning is driving the entrepreneurs to implement online learning institutes at a rapid pace.

Whizz-kids like Yelena Maslova, one of among Russia’s Top 30 young Internet entrepreneurs by Forbes Russia, are backing up online learning. In spite having a traditional educational career, she participated in online learning course from California’s Stanford University and much to her surprise discovered that contrary to general notion, the quality of online classes was best-in-class.

“I had world-class specialists as professors, read tonnes of articles and books, and submitted essays,” Yelena said. “So this education did not differ much from an offline course. In my case, it was even better.”

This exactly is the reason why eLearning is becoming more and more popular among the inspired learners. This mode of learning offers a customised learning opportunity. And being online learning is becoming all the more available to the students who are deprived of proper study material due to the constraint of region and resource. So the hard fact is traditional learning is failing to fulfil the purpose of passing on the knowledge that is required to get a suitable job title for the learners.

And online learning is making all the effort to fulfil this hiatus between ‘knowledge’ that is needed and learning that is imparted by the traditional learning institutes. Study says that today employers of all around the world are seeking skilled people not only educated individuals. And to upgrade skills online learning is the best place because the courses and modules are designed in a way from which learners will be armed with hands-on experience.

Traditional learning is teacher oriented, where educators are considered as the core of the classroom. And the only activity of a student is listening to lectures and taking notes. The cost of traditional learning is increasing drastically which is, actually, restraining students to opt for higher studies. And then there are working students who are bounded by social and family responsibilities and forced to end their studies. Online learning provides everything that a traditional institute can’t.

Liu Ying, director of the Test and Evaluation Research Institute under ATA, said that online learning is going to play a major role to change the framework of education entirely

“One direction of reform is to help students improve learning efficiency and effect,” says Ying, “And thanks to the convenience and the big data brought by the Internet, we are more able to help students to achieve these goals, deploying tools and techniques including a self-adaptive test system, individual knowledge graph and big-data analysis.”.

Like Yelena Maslova and Yind many entrepreneurs and bigwigs are thinking of initiating online learning institutes to deliver quality education needed to build the future of a nation.

You can skip this article if you think you have enough naira to spend the rest of your adult life in Banana Island right beside the mansion of Mike Adenuga watching Atlantic sunsets. Now if you don’t, then this article is going to be a life-changer for you.

Let’s have a quick look on Nigeria’s economic condition first. If you search for ‘counties with lowest HDI’, where HDI stands for a real-time measurement of human development which is scaled and indexed by analyzing life expectancy, potentiality (earned by proper education), and income of an individual, you will see Nigeria – among several other African countries – on almost top of the list. To search the reason behind this economic failure a further exploration is needed.

Nigeria’s education system fails to deliver a future to the students. Or let’s put it in another way, student’s future is in the hand of such an educational system which can’t provide necessary skills that is essentially required for a quality job. And interestingly enough, the number of job-hunters are increasing day-by-day. Due to the economic structure students are thinking of getting a job before or just after finishing their studies. As the economic growth of Nigeria, like any other country, depends on its educational infrastructure it’s probably not the best idea to rely on traditional learning only. Some research done on alternative learning will eventually point you towards a new form of education – online learning. It provides tailored online learning modules ranging from undergraduate management, hotel and hospitality to fast track MBA. No matter in what stage you are in now or how bad you did back in your school, an online undergraduate diploma will serve an alternative path with which you can upgrade your skills to get a sustainable job title in Graduate recruitment or ‘milk round’. Additionally, this will surely quicken your way for further educational qualification while being wrapped up by your assigned job in a company.

Nigerian economy in global perspective: What’s to be done.

According to the World Bank Nigeria’s present economic condition can’t be revived if approximately 60 million jobs are not created and filled up by skilled people within this and the next decade. The question is whether this part of the world has that much infrastructure to fulfill the need? The answer, without a doubt, is no. But it can have, if learners are keen enough acquire essential knowledge and training by choosing online learning – as an upgraded version of education – to gain an undergraduate diploma. This will surely increase the opportunity to get jobs in public and privet sectors.

If getting a job in this critical financial condition is all you need then an undergraduate diploma done through online serves its purpose. If you are doubtful about the authenticity of these courses, then know this ‘digital degrees’ are legitimate and valued by the employers all over the world. If student decides to get an online undergraduate diploma or participate in any course that will provide him a future, then he can do it without doubting its legitimacy because all online courses are accredited and recognised by ATHE.

Graduate recruitment: What’s next?

Got a job? OK, now it’s time to think about a pay hike. Wondering how you can get a pay raise you deserve without quitting your job and investing much money? The answer is still the same, start upgrading your educational qualification through online learning. Short time or full-time online business and management courses are the main attraction of online learning among the students because they promise career growth.

To conclude

Career upgrade by obtaining online undergraduate diploma, to be honest, bridges the educational gap. It is emerging as a hot trend that embodies a learning which will result in evolving new abilities, making substantial career shifts and ultimately earning more money, throughout the world.

Online Learning: Providing An Alternative Learning Pathway For Better Career.

Technology alone changed our lifestyle in almost every aspect, whether you want to communicate a buddy of yours living in another part of the world or transfer money to your family whenever they need. Every single thing you can think of has changed in a radical way by the touch of technology, educational system is no exceptional. Gone are the days when educators had to rely on orally delivered speech and the hard copy of study material. Now is the time of digitalised era, where the process of learning has taken a technical form.

It is scientifically proved that an online steaming video or a webcast can help students in a more specific way, whether they are going to track the movement of quantum particles or measure the atmospheric components. Technology reveals a better way of understanding of complex three dimensional structures of mechanical and medical related contents.

There are, however, some negative thoughts about this new education-delivery system. Some holds the thought that online learning can be a success if only it is applied on teaching STEM subjects, i.e. Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Language, literature, social and political studies, history and the rest are best delivered if it is done traditionally. But no matter how this debate goes on online learning continues to be a vital part of educational system.

On What Ground Online Learning Is Gaining Its Popularity?

Wonder how Trevor MacNeice, a student working on two shifts in McDonald completed his MBA in management and got a job with a handsome salary package after few years of hard working? Well, he has been told to believe by a friend that online courses are the only option available to obtain such a degree. He did some research on online education and started saving money immediately after he was convinced about it.

Alternate Learning Pathway

Online education has paved the way for an alternative learning pathway which not only provides a wide range of learning options but also an opportunity of obtaining alternative credentialing. Whether you are in pursuit of a higher degree or want to do a course on computer programing language, online education serves it all.

Better Accessibility

One of the interesting facts of online learning is that students can access the course material anytime they want irrespective of their engagement in any other work, which means they can continue their studies in the lunch time during a work-shift, or in the middle of a music class through mobile. A recent research shows that accessing the web-courses through smart phone has increased in the US in 2009 from 18% to 64%. This clearly shows the popularity that online learning is gaining among the students.

A Support For Adults

Online education, by all means, has been acting as a supportive element to the adult learners also. Not only is it arming them with new skills required for a career growth but also making them technically acknowledged with various online educational tools like computers, smart phones, projectors, etc.

It Costs Less

Online education allows the learners to choose from several courses which costs less than a half of what they had to spend in traditional educational institutes. No matter what course you choose you have to pay less than what u thought. Working as a part-timer? Start doing online courses with your savings.

To be exact, online learning is an upgraded version of traditional face-to-face learning. It focuses on the result of learning rather that learning itself. A degree is utterly meaningless if it not directs to a better career or brighter future. Online education fills the need of career oriented learning. It delivers exactly the education that the traditional learning in a bricks-and-mortar classroom fails to provide.
