With the global domination of the world wide web, encompassing everything from education to the entertainment sector, it is no surprise that online classes are a common sight everywhere! Online classes hold a host of advantages over the traditional classes. Students who once had to compromise with their dreams due to geographical or economic reasons now have access to quality education at the convenience of their home. Students can now even prepare for highly competitive exams like NEET, JEE, AIIMS etc. by studying from home.
Online courses in the form of live online classes and recorded video lectures have removed the barriers of location, time and traffic. Check how online classes have helped students fight these barriers:
Options of Different Learning Mediums
The host of courses available with just a few clicks of an individual’s fingers is probably one of the biggest advantages of e-learning platforms. Students no longer need to rely only on the local tuitions with average teaching as they can now get high-quality coaching at the convenience of home by joining online courses. Further, they get options of live online classes and recorded video lectures to choose from.
Confused what is the difference between them?
Live online classes
Students who want regular guidance of experienced teachers as they get in traditional classes can join live online classes. Aakash Live offers online courses for medical, engineering and foundations exam preparation where students can attend classes by Aakash faculty at home and can also ask doubts during the class as they do in regular classes.
Recorded video lectures
Students who want to prefer self-study and just want additional study material to strengthen their concepts can opt for recorded video lectures. Aakash iTutor provides online courses in the form of recorded video lectures from qualified Aakash faculty. Students can watch video lectures as many times as they want to master the topics. Further, they can also ask doubts anytime, anywhere by using the ‘Ask an Expert’ feature to get answers from subject-matter experts.
Time-saving and Convenient
Online classes provide students with the option of learning in an environment that is most conducive to them – their own home. This leads to more relaxed study sessions as it gives the students freedom from the hassle of travelling miles and wasting time in traffic jams to attend classes, which can often get exhausting.
Instead, they can simply sit back in the most comfortable clothes and dedicate more productive hours towards actual studies.
E-learning proves to be more economical than traditional tuition classes because it saves the students a major share of expenses that would otherwise be spent on the commute and other additional charges incurred during the entire process of going back and forth between their home and classes. In addition, fee charged for online courses is also comparatively lower than what is charged by traditional tuition centres.
Online courses also provide students with flexible study hours by giving them access to recorded video lectures. They can efficiently plan their study sessions around their normal routine. This becomes even more important for day scholars, as they are subjected to an extremely exhausting routine even without the additional burden of tuition classes.
The flexibility provided by online classes in this case, thus, helps students prepare efficiently for not just their school and board exams but also for other entrance and scholarship exams they want to appear for.
Quick Doubt Resolution
Contrary to popular opinion, online classes do provide a healthy interaction between the student and the teacher. This environment is even more conducive for introverted students who find it hard to speak up in class. Students are allowed to ask their doubts anytime during the class by using different features like chat or raise a hand. A healthy interaction between the teacher and the student leads to improved productivity and better results.
Not just this, platforms like Aakash Live also provide special doubt resolution sessions where students can ask their doubts and can get immediate answers from the teachers. In addition to this, students can also call up dedicated faculties to ask their doubts on the phone.
In this era of digitalization, there is no denying the role of online classes in the education sector. What’s interesting to note is the increasing impact of online courses with each passing second. They not only have brought an entire world of knowledge to students’ fingertips but also have made education more accessible to people from all walks of life.
Aakash Digital is one of the examples of e-learning platforms giving smooth access to high-quality education. With live online classes, recorded video lectures and online practice tests, the ed-tech platform is enabling students to get Aakash’s 30 years of academic legacy and guidance of experienced faculty right at their home.
