Online training that’s often referred to as distance learning or e-learning has helped in growing the academic sector worldwide. it’s an art of spreading knowledge everywhere the world. they’re basically of two types some are free and a few are paid.

In the times of modernisation, the talk regarding the efficacy of excellent teaching methods is prevalent around the academic world. Yet, many educators and faculty teachers fail to undertake or possess any novel and distinctive teaching style. It goes without saying — traditionalist mindset about teaching methods and techniques continues to be quite pervasive, intrinsically that it paves the way towards dire educational challenges faced by teachers which subsequently puts the student’s success in danger.

The traditional view of a school librarian was keeping the bookshelves stocked, teaching students how to retrieve information and reading stories to the children. Of-course the importance of books, whether hard copy or digital remains; the more they read the better readers they will be. This is directly tied to improved literacy in students ranging from Kindergarten through to Year 12.

However, the decreasing focus on hard copy books, highlights the evolving nature of the role of today’s librarians now that information is online. But of course, with the changing face of learning content comes the increasing need to develop children’s digital literacy; to successful navigate the Internet mine field. Schools must recognise that the role of today’s librarian is so much more than books and story time. Children have to learn how to access trusted, safe and credible information in a different way. Teaching students online researching and safety procedures in vitally important says Sean Castle. …

In this blog Sean Castle is sharing 10 Reasons Why Online Learning Is Popular Right Now

Businesses across the world prefer hiring professionals who are always interested in upgrading their skills. The internet has made upgrading skills easy, as students can sign up for courses and take them without things ever interfering with their professional commitments. Online learning is easy and stress-free, and you can learn anything from anywhere at any time. Here are ten more reasons why online learning is popular right now:

1. Affordability

E-learning is affordable, especially for companies that are looking to train their workforces.

Also, online learning does not require individuals to come together at a physical location, so companies don’t have to spend on arranging training rooms, making travel and accommodation arrangements, etc. All an employee needs is their laptop or smartphone, along with internet access, and they can learn from anywhere. …

Sean Castle: Thanks to the web , individuals can learn from anywhere within the world and at any time they please. Technology has also changed how professors and students approach the classroom. For instance, professors are not any longer the first source of learning; rather, they facilitate the training process. This is unlike traditional education models, where professors are required to be hands-on.

But more and more individuals are choosing e-learning over traditional learning lately , mainly because the previous is flexible and convenient.

Here are three more benefits of online learning that can’t be denied:

1. Easy Access:

You don’t always need a laptop to participate in an online course; a smartphone is more than enough. A few hundred years ago, only a privileged few had access to books. In contrast, today massive amounts of information (e-books, videos, podcasts, audio-books, etc.) can be accessed through the internet. There are many opportunities for college kids lately , and both universities and non-profit organizations like Khan Academy strive to help eager students. …

With school districts’ increased dedication to raising academic standards and abolishing social promotion, tremendous pressure has been placed on teachers and students to lift standardized test scores. While this could appear admirable from afar, its practical and real-life implications don’t seem to be often as glowing. In fact, the push toward higher standards often results in tracking, ability grouping, and grade retention-all of which have inherent problems. Tracking, grouping, and retention are widely practiced within the us and in many other countries, and that they are founded on both theory and research. Tracking, most frequently practiced in secondary schools, groups students into courses or sequences of courses of varied levels of difficulty suited to their levels of achievement. Ability grouping, most frequently practiced in primary schools, assigns students within classrooms to homogeneous groups of like ability. Grade retention requires students who haven’t attained achievement standards to repeat one or more grades. All three practices are supported the assumption that children of like abilities or levels of feat can learn together more efficiently than can heterogeneous students. Other theories and research suggest that these practices is also inefficient and unwise. Some argue, for instance, that students retained in grade may suffer declining self-concept which can deter their progress in order that they’re less likely to catch up with grade level standards. this can be due, in part, to the actual fact that, by itself, grade retention doesn’t address the causes of educational failure. Others counter that, to the contrary, such students would eventually fall further behind and drop out whether or not they were retained. To “socially promote” ill-prepared students would depreciate the worth of the highschool diplomas of these who meet rigorous standards. Similarly, some argue that it’s more efficient to show subjects like mathematics when students share similar abilities. as an example, it’d seem difficult for consumer mathematics and calculus to be learned efficiently in one group. Still, it’s going to be argued that faster learning students may like helping slower-learning students. …

When I’m teaching an online class, I cannot visibly ascertain if my students are actively reading and engaged in the course materials, until they are involved in class discussions and submitting written assignments. The same is fairly true for teaching a traditional college classroom, except an immediate visual assessment can be made during classroom interactions, such as a class discussion. No matter what classroom environment learning occurs within, students still conduct a majority of their studying on their own. When they come to the classroom, this is often a time when a teacher can encourage active learning and cognitive processing. …
