With the eruption of online education in the past decade, there has emerged a plethora of online courses and study material. A student has so many options to choose from and getting confused is just as natural. The success of online learning means more than pouring traditional instructional methods into new bottles and branding it differently. It takes a more holistic approach to make it a quality experience for students.
Listed below are some of the important parameters that can help students and parents alike to make an informed decision when opting for online coaching for preparation of NEET, JEE etc.
The Content of the Online Course
This is the most important benchmark to judge the online study material on. The content is what the student is ultimately going to consume. It is necessary that your course covers all the topics required and desired by you. Transparency and availability of information about the course and the institutions offering it are of utmost importance. The student should know exactly what they are taking on by subscribing to the certain online course. You must check whether the online course includes just the videos or a complete set of recorded video lectures, e-books, printed study material, and tests.
The Technology Used for Online Course
Let’s face it, technology in India, especially in rural India, is an unsettled domain. The speed, connectivity, regularity is still an issue at many places. You don’t want your course videos/live interactive classes to lag and disconnect. Glitches are a major turnoff when trying to do something as engrossing as studying. So, there is a special need to take this into account and choose a course that will function with your data plan and network restrictions.
The Flexibility of the Online Course
Flexibility in the online material necessarily means flexibility in schedule. Suppose you miss a lecture or need to review it, the course should allow you to go back to it and revisit it whenever you want. There are times when you can’t make it in time; when opting for digital learning mediums over traditional classroom coaching, it is significant that you don’t miss out the lectures and catch up to everybody’s pace. The course should be bang for the buck too and should not be of exorbitant.
Interaction in the Online Course
Learning something new will definitely make you question some things in the course and you are bound to have doubts. It is essential that the digital interface provides you with a gateway to clear any doubts you have and understand things more concretely. This interaction is paramount to the success and popularity of an online course. Even the students who feel shy to raise their queries in the class should be able to keep their questions in front of the teachers in online classes.
Examinations in the Online Course
The more precise the examinations are, the better the quality of the course and the results are. For the preparation of competitive entrance exams like NEET, JEE, AIIMS etc. it is important for the students to regularly asses their progress. A course that gives its students accurate and regular tests like daily practice test, mock tests, previous year papers, and puzzles is destined to help students achieve their goals in the least time.
The Reputation of the Online Course Provider
This is a measure that can add extra security to your decision to subscribe to a certain online course offering live interactive classes or recorded video lectures. Although reputation should not be the only measure to judge, it can surely add some assurance to know that the online coaching institute is a well-reputed one and had good results in the past.
