E-Learning: Why Is It So Beneficial?
Traditional tutoring methods have somewhat taken a hit due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Although we’ve experienced success with the return of physical tutoring ourselves, the rise of online tutoring is undeniable. But not only that, it’s also expected to continue post-pandemic.
E-learning is ‘a structured course or learning experience delivered electronically.’ It can involve live or pre-recorded lecture content, videos, quizzes, simulations, games, activities, and other interactive elements that help students learn in an environment other than the classroom. Specifically, the e-learning that we offer here at Aim High is ‘Synchronous e-learning,’ better known as live-online training, online learning, synchronous online training, or virtual classroom training. This is because it’s instructor-led and taken at the same time as others.
So, why is e-learning so beneficial to you and your children?
Save yourself time and money
Instead of having to travel to drop your child off and then pick them back up again, wouldn’t you rather have us come to your home for a change? Well, with e-learning, we can do just that through the power of technology!
E-learning eliminates travel completely from the picture. This means that you can save on expenses for fuel and have more time to do other things as a result. All you need is a secure and reliable internet connection as well as the technology to participate – we recommend a laptop due to its built-in camera and portability. This can all be very convenient for parents who are always busy.
The flexibility is perfect, allowing you to fit the sessions into your daily schedule!
There’s excellent consistency and personalisation
Now that Covid is in the picture, as well as infectious variants such as Delta and Omicron, many families are concerned about crowds and catching the virus. Pair that with the possibility of future lockdowns or more restrictions coming into play, and we are left with uncertainty surrounding face-to-face lessons. On the other hand, online tutoring lessons don’t experience this problem. They are much more consistent; you’ll be guaranteed them each and every week.
In terms of personalisation, we can tailor our lessons to cater for your child’s every need. Are they stuck on a particular Maths topic? Then no worries – we can help them overcome any and all challenges they experience in the classroom. E-learning can provide that.
Children retain information better
According to children, reading through pages of a textbook can be classed as ‘boring’ or ‘ineffective.’ So, instead, we utilise videos and other e-learning tools to play into this factor. The more engaging our lessons are, the better they will retain the information later down the line. However, the less interesting these lessons are, the more likely they will forget everything we taught.
Online content is easier to grasp and digest in many ways. It can result in better scores on tests or improvements in coursework while enhancing very much needed skills. In fact, it leads to a better understanding of the course materials; they will subsequently enjoy studying and be more inclined to succeed.
The environment also benefits
Since there’s no travelling involved, you and your child are actively protecting the planet (as are we!). Also, the lack of paper being used is also better for the environment. This benefit may not be immediately apparent for your child in their studies, but it is for the future of our planet.
You can use this as a way to teach them about the importance of being eco-friendly and making small changes to help the whole planet.
