We are living in the world where technology has become almost integral part of human life. From industry to medical, technology has got better and more advanced. As different techs continue to support various requisite of mankind, digital technology has also penetrated to the education system. Edtech has helped to evolve distance learning. Online learning courses are gaining massive popularity due to its affordable pricing and flexibility. As we understand that online learning has revolutionised the education system across the world, now the question is what next? There are online higher studies, but can there be online high school?
When it seemed nothing for online education we thought the concept of e-learning would die gradually. But proving critics wrong web education has not only surpassed the obstacles but now is a popular platform for learning. Likewise, the online high school could offer valuable and effective knowledge resources to the students. Read on.
Resourceful and affordable
what we have understood from the online pattern of learning is that it’s pool of knowledge. The Internet has the capability to offer vast knowledge resources to the learners. Taking the example of online colleges and universities, you’ll find that their syllabus is no different from the traditional and sometimes, even more, relevant. As the online institutes work under the surveillance of regulatory bodies the, they have to strictly follow the rules and regulations.
Online high schools can operate under the similar fashion. It’s imperative to mention that online education is affordable. Since there is comparatively less investment in online learning the greater focus remains to the qualitative education. Today, almost in every part of the of the world the expense of schooling is increasing. So why not offer low-cost better and convenient education to the students with digital learning?
Suited for rural and wretched students
Online high school can help students living in the remote areas to participate in educational learning. Since, the study material are available in the form of text/PDF format, video content and infographics, the student with internet access can involve in the study. So, if we can have access to world-class education at any time and at any place. Besides, students from the poor background can also involve to learning because of its cost effectiveness and flexibility. As we known the students with poor fiscal background disengage with education to support their family. Enrolling to e-learning high school would enable them to earn money to aid family abreast taking education. Moreover, it’ll allow students of all ages to take learning who have left education earlier due to some obligations. I hope that to support education online high schools would offer scholarship or arrange funding for the poor students.
Relevant learning with advanced teaching
Online learning is a platform where relevant study resources and teaching is delivered. In short- online education is relevant learning. Again referring to the online higher education programmes, the curriculum is skill and knowledge development oriented. Hence, it would not be a rocket science for the educational administrators to design relevant learning content for high school taught via online. Besides, online teachers have to adapt new innovative ideas to cater learning to the students. Because, though the platform is digital but yet basics are same when it comes to teaching students as in campus learning. Unlike traditional learning, online teachers have a bigger challenge to meet the expectation of the students as there would less or no face to face communication. Though, via video conference tools teacher, can teach the group of students but it’s to be interesting and engaging.
Look at future
As we continue to hear that online learning is the future of education, I apprehend that someday online high schools will engage students with meaningful learning. It would definitely transform the existing pattern of high school learning adjoining the advanced knowledge system. The next generation will take substantial education at online high schools. I am sure the virtual classroom will successfully engage students with pertinent knowledge contents and model along with best-fit teaching method.
