In light of recent events around the globe, it has impacted many individuals and their daily lives. Schools and learning institutions have been greatly affected by this. College and university administrators in some areas have chose to cancel the spring semester or close schools for the foreseeable future. In other cases we’ve seen administrators, teachers and parents have to reevaluate how their students and children are educated during this time. One of the biggest solutions for college and universities have been moving classes and asking their professors to teach segments online through e-learning.
Although e-learning has been common for college and universities for the last 10 years, for most teachers that teach elementary through high school, this concept of is new. Grade school teachers have never been asked to teach online, and students have never had to sit in front of their computers or mobile devices to learn on a regular basis from their home. Grade schools admins and teachers have had the challenge of finding the right solution and technology or software to make sure that they can teach online and make sure their students are actually learning.
Not only has it affected students and teachers, but also parents. Over night they had to reevaluate and make sure that their children are well equipped and disciplined to properly learn from their homes with the proper technology. We’ve seen schools offer laptops and mobile devices to students who may need them. Some schools have even asked parents, to hold themselves responsible to make sure their children continuing their education from home by giving them the assignments that they would normally give in class.
Some parents have been at a lost and not sure exactly what to do to make sure their children are learning. This is why E-Learning has never been as important as it has been in the past. We are seeing more and more e-learning platforms and software being offered online so that people can properly continue their education, in wake of situations like global crisis. It is important that education doesn’t come to a stand still, and that parents, students and teachers find different solutions to make sure they are continuing to educate both children and young adults.
The great thing about e-learning is that you can pretty much find online courses for almost anything. We’ve seen platforms like Udemy disrupt formal education model by offering almost any course available at every school and university for all ages. We’ve seen the likes of MasterClass offer online courses taught by professionals in different industries.
As more people flock to finding education online, we know one thing, e-learning has never been as important as before.
