Online learning: The whole nine yards.
Let’s get deep into the design and development of online learning modules. This technology-infused learning approach offers a tailored learning opportunity through which they can opt for their study at their leisure time.
As the tuition fees are rising high the ratio of student opting for higher education is feared to fall. Online learning is cost-effective and this is the reason learners are relying on a virtual classroom rather that brick-and-mortar one.
Imparting active learning is one of the salient features online learning is providing. And to stay in the race in the era of competition this is the one thing advanced learners are needed.

Online learning promotes ‘learning by sharing’ and the process of learning through online brings off a virtual atmosphere where students can learn as a group in a ‘classroom’. They can help each other by initiating a discussion on blogs, social media websites or even any online discussion boards dedicated to learning and gaining knowledge. This intensifies the involvement in study and among the learners by engaging them in peer-to-peer support.
