Online learning is no more a completely new concept. Students have been using the technology to learn new things in addition to what they learn in the class for years now. However, learning from the endless parade of slideshows and long articles made it a bit difficult to digest a large amount of information in one go. Thankfully, now there are various other enriching e-learning mediums.
Video-based learning is one of the best examples of improved technology in digital learning. From schools to coaching institutes and businesses, video-based teaching today is used almost everywhere to make learning more effective and engaging. From live online classes to recorded video lectures, video-based learning has offered improved learner experience with visual examples. Short, crisp, engaging and elucidating videos allow students to enjoy learning at their pace by directly interacting with the teachers. There are a number of other benefits that caused an upward spiral in the demand for video-based learning in recent years. Let’s have a look at some of the major benefits of video-based learning.
Convenience of learning
Students who are not able to strike a balance between coaching and school, find digital learning through videos a perfect choice. It gives them the freedom to explore the study material for competitive exams from the comfort of their home. Students who want to study as per the availability of time with them can watch recorded video lectures whenever and wherever they want.
With a right blend of sight and sound, videos make it easier for the students to digest the content. Students find it more interest to learn by listening to the study material through videos than reading the traditional printed material. Further, the use of subtitles gives students a choice to watch, listen or read the topics of their choice.
With the option to start, stop and rewind, videos make learning more flexible. Students can watch recorded video lectures as many times as they want to retain the information for longer. Moreover, students can also choose the videos of their choice on specific subjects or topics while enrolling for online courses for the preparation of competitive exams for engineering, medical and other courses.
Students who want some extra content for revision or to cover the topics they miss in the class find video lectures a perfect solution. Recorded video lectures give them the flexibility of revising the syllabus as many times as they want and that too in addition to the regular syllabus provided in the classroom.
Online courses in video format offer an affordable choice to the students. It helps them save money not just in terms of the fees but also the money spent on traveling to attend the coaching classes.
There are different types of learners like auditory learners who like to study by listening and the visual learners who like to study by looking at the things. Visual learners grab things quickly and effectively when the concepts, ideas, and words are taught with a combination of images and videos. It helps them retain the information in a better way.
Easy Accessibility on Different Devices
One of the advantages of video-based learning is that you can enjoy it any device including a desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile phone. Further, you can watch video lectures even without the internet connection by enrolling for courses offered in the form of recorded video lectures. For instance, students who want to utilize their traveling time can get videos on the mobile phones or tablets and can explore them whenever and wherever they want to enjoy learning at their pace.
Selection of right online course provider
With the increasing demand for online courses, there are so many educational institutes coming up with various options. But not all are equally reliable. To ensure that you get maximum value from digital learning, look for a coaching institute that provides quality study material prepared by the experienced faculty. Whether you opt for live online classes or recorded video lectures, ensure the quality of the study material first and then enroll for their courses.
Looking at the problems faced by some students in maintaining the right balance between coaching and regular classes, Aakash Digital has launched online courses. Students preparing for NEET, JEE and other competitive exams after class VIII can join these courses.
