The coronavirus pandemic has not only affected millions of people around the world but has also disrupted almost every sector including the education sector. With the educational institutions shut for almost 5 months now, had it not been for online learning, the academic year would have been completely compromised.
As we know, India has one of the largest education systems in the world. The education of millions of students would have been at stake if the educational institutions have not come up with new and more effective methods of teaching. There has been a paradigm shift from traditional classroom education towards online education. This shift has not only helped students to continue to learn from the safety of their homes in the times of global pandemic but has also introduced the world to a new way of learning.
Today, online learning has emerged as the best learning tool amid the COVID-19 crisis.
Great Flexibility & Easily Accessible
Many students move to an unknown city to pursue their dream. Online learning offers great flexibility by helping you to study with the best faculty and resources in your city. Also, it is easy accessible. All you need is a good internet connection and a Smartphone/Tablet/Computer/Laptop that helps you to access your lessons and more from the comfort of your home.
Access to Recorded Lectures
Recorded Lectures are definitely one of the best features of online learning. On the days, you are unable to attend the online class or have not understood a topic properly, simply access the recorded video lectures and replay it as many times as required.
Saves Time, Money & Effort
Online learning allows you to learn from the comfort of your home without having to travel anywhere. All you need to do is, simply log in with your credentials and start learning. It helps you to save big on the transportation cost and more importantly on your time and effort. Besides, students from remote areas and villages who move to bigger cities/ educational hubs for better educational opportunities can save big on the cost, time and effort as re-locating to a new place is not only expensive and exhausting but also emotionally challenging. Now with online learning, you can learn with the best faculty and resources at the comfort of your home irrespective of whether you belong to a metro or to the most remote part of the country, thereby saving additional cost on accommodation, utilities, etc.
Studies show that online learning promotes better retention of information. Online learning courses use multimedia tools, animations, video tutorials etc. which not only makes learning more interactive and interesting but also aids in better retention. Moreover, whenever there is any doubt or you need to revise your concepts, simply access the recorded video lectures that will help you to absorb more and boost your retention power.

The online assessment feature offers you a flawless test experience and most importantly an explicit test analysis which is imperative for every student preparing for medical and engineering entrance exams, school/board exams, Olympiads and scholarship exams. After attempting every test, you’ll receive a detailed analytical report. The error analysis is the most useful part of such analytical reports. It not only helps you to identify your weaknesses but also provides you with your relative performance which helps you to know your potential and where you stand among other students preparing for a similar exam.
