Benefits of e-Learning


There are many significant advantages for the student who learns online. Here are just a few to consider:

Convenience and Portability

  • Courses are accessible on your schedule
  • Online learning does not require physical attendance
  • Learning is self-paced (not too slow, not too fast)
  • You’re unbound by time – courses are available 24/7
  • You’re unbound by place – study at home, work, or on the road
  • Read materials online or download them for reading later

Cost and Selection

  • Choose from a wide range of courses to meet your needs
  • Degree, Vocational, and Certificate programs
  • Continuing Education
  • Individual courses
  • Wide range of prices to fit your budget
  • Go back to school to get a degree, learn a new skill, learn a new craft, or just have fun!
  • From art to zoology you can do it all online in a price range to fit your budget.

Flexibility

  • Online learning accommodates your preferences and needs – it’s student-centered
  • Choose instructor-led or self-study courses
  • Skip over material you already know and focus on topics you’d like to learn
  • Use the tools best suited to your learning styles

Higher Retention

  • Online learning will draw you to topics you like and enjoy. Studies show that because of this and the variety of delivery methods used to reach different types of learners, retention is frequently better than in a traditional classroom.

Greater Collaboration

  • Technology tools make collaboration among students much easier. Since many projects involve collaborative learning, the online environment is far easier (and often more comfortable) to work in since learners don’t have to be face-to-face.

Global Opportunities


  • The global learning community is at your fingertips with online learning. The technologies used give online instructional designers the ability to build in tools that take you to resources you may never see in a traditional classroom.

Above all, it can be irreversibly assessed that E- learning can be considered as the cause and hub of a turning point in giving world class education its value in this global era.
