It’s been three years now since I am conducting IELTS online classes. When I have begun, I was afraid that how many candidates will actually turn-up for online training. But I was shocked knowing that online training is actually the buzz word. One of my student from Punjab, Aman Preet told me long back that online training is no less than a blessing for her. She always wanted to move abroad, but if IELTS online training session were not available, then this would have been only a dream for her. With online training at her disposal, she easily balanced her work-home and studies. The online training gave her an option to choose time slot as per her convenience and she can take classes from anywhere. Aman scored 7.5 band and is an established professional in Canada now. Online learning is a still a relatively young industry, promising a rich future of breakthroughs. New models of teaching are already emerging that have the potential to take online learning to even greater accomplishments.This blog will elaborate benefits of online training. Let’s have a look-
1- Simple and flexible:
As compared to offline or classroom training, online training is far simpler. All you need is a good internet connection and a zeal to study. Online training offers you to study on various platforms from Skype to IMO, Whatsapp call, Facetime and much more. At skillking, students are given a liberty to choose any platform and trainer is ready to deliver lectures on the chosen medium. We have also tried to make it flexible. Students can choose any time slot between 7 am and 10 pm as per their availability. If someday any student is unable to attend class on time, then he/ she can speak to the trainer and opt for any other time slot. Entire course plan is also molded as per the demand of the student.
2- Freedom to study:
In this era of globalization, the world has become a small village where everyone can reach anywhere at anytime. So online training is a perfect match for 21st century both for the learner and the trainer. It gives a freedom to the student to study anytime, anywhere. Then it equally gives an option to the trainers to conduct classes from anywhere.
3- Learn from a diverse group of instructors and students:
Gaining perspective from industry specialists and other students in your field of study from all over the world (and from different roles, professions, and backgrounds) rather than just from your hometown can give you valuable insight, resources and experiences you might otherwise miss. It is not easy to arrange all expert trainers at one place at a particular time. With online training, you get an opportunity to get training from the best experts in the industry. Merely through a skype call or facetime, students get an advantage to study from best faculty in the industry, no matter when they are staying.
4- Immediate results and feedback:
Most online learning technologies integrate online quizzes and other tools to more rapidly evaluate the pace of learning. This makes it easier for the trainers to evaluate the skills of students and give instant feedback.
5- Brings education right to your home:
Online training is a big time saver as you don’t have to go anywhere and can take classes anytime. As already said, all you need is a strong internet connection and enjoy classes from anywhere. So it won’t be wrong to say that online courses bring education right to the candidates home.
6- Individual attention:
Not more than 2-3 students are taken in a single online training batch, so students enjoy individual attention. Their queries are resolved at a faster pace. It also helps students to gain in-depth knowledge about the subject.
7- More comfortable learning environment:
Forget about attending classes for hours, sitting in an uncomfortable chair, and suffering from back pain by the end of the day. You will not be bound to a physical class session when you opt for online education. All lectures and needed materials are provided via online platforms, so you’ll easily access them from the comfort of your home. You will not take public transport to get to campus, you won’t have to spend money on gas for your car, you won’t have to get up early to get dressed for class… the list of conveniences goes on and on.
8- Online courses look great on a resume:
It doesn’t matter where your career stands at this moment; an online program will always look good on your resume. It will show potential employers that you’re committed to learning and you’re eager to obtain more knowledge and new skills. Hiring managers don’t see online degrees as inferior to traditional ones. A degree is a degree. If you obtain an online degree from a prestigious university, you’ll boost your career with the speed of light. You will certainly become a better candidate for a job promotion, and your resume will look much better when you apply for new positions.
9- Lesser fees as compared to classroom training:
The fact that online programs are cheaper when compared to the ones held in a traditional campus setting is enough to convince you to consider them. The average tuition for online courses depends on multiple factors, so it varies from one program to another.
10- Better Retention:
With clever design, user experience, and multimedia, online instruction can prove to be a richer and more effective learning experience than traditional methods and channels.
11- Convenient Schedule:
Many adults who want to return to school might be working full time, or they might also have a family to care for. For those people, taking the time to drive out to class in the evenings while working during the day is not feasible. Online education allows for the attendance of class wherever the student has access to the Internet. Online learning is, in many cases, available 24 hours a day and seven days a week, so the student can participate in class whenever it’s most convenient. You’ll have access to a broad spectrum of relevant content through your online course web site.
12- Continue in your profession:
Even if someone wants to complete a degree program, it doesn’t mean that they want to leave their current job. For most students today, college costs mean that it’s necessary to continue working while in school. The previously mentioned flexibility of online degree programs enable students to keep working while also pursuing academic credentials.
13- Online courses help you meet interesting people.
Many of us don’t really take the time to get to know our fellow students, especially in large classes. We might be too busy or we’re just plain shy. An online course provides an opportunity to get to know other students via bulletin boards, chat rooms, and mailing lists. Even if you just converse online, it gives you a type of interaction with other students and other people that just isn’t practical in the time-limited on-campus classroom.You’ll network with classmates from a wide range of backgrounds and locations.
14- Breaks the fear of classroom training:
Because you have a direct pipeline to the instructor via e-mail, you can get your questions answered directly. Many students aren’t comfortable asking questions in class for fear of feeling stupid. The Internet (hopefully) eliminates that fear (as long as you feel comfortable with the instructor). Many times you think of a question after class or while you are studying. Rather that trying to remember to ask it or forgetting it, you can send an e-mail to the instructor. Your opportunity to learn is enhanced.
