Is eLearning a Replacement for Traditional Studying?
In the past, studying was something that was almost exclusively done through books and offline resources. Thanks to the internet, we started to get online resources such as digitized books and free encyclopedias which are constantly updated with unique topics. That eventually evolved into online learning where almost anyone can teach others through the use of articles, blog posts and even videos.
But is eLearning going to stay around as a replacement to traditional studying and courses?
Why eLearning is great
eLearning is a fantastic way to teach unique skills that can’t be found anywhere else. Whether it’s how to play a specific style of music or how to design in a certain style, you can be as niche as you want. The courses can also be viewed online in various formats that suit the student, meaning they can learn in their preferred style. The content is also available 24/7, meaning they can study at their own pace as well.
Why eLearning can be problematic
eLearning will never really replace traditional learning. The schooling system that we have in most countries now is too deeply rooted to be replaced despite the advantages of online study. In addition, awareness about online studying is still quite low and most people still consider universities and colleges to be the preferred way to study. However, as more startups take root and start offering interesting and effective ways to learn new skills, we’ll start to see a gradual shift towards eLearning being the preferred way for people to learn new or unique skills.
