As technology has tunneled its way and engraved its name into humanity’s daily existence, the teaching-learning experience and education in general has changed.
Remote learning is now possible because of technology. The online SHSAT Class, for instance, is done through the internet and computer in the comforts of the student’s home, but are provided with diagnostic tests, detailed assessments, SHSAT-specific lessons, mastery tests as well as other learning materials and lessons needed to prepare for the SHSAT exam.
Remote learning is also called distance learning where the teaching-learning process happens online and where learners are provided with access to online learning and training materials.
Online Learning – Its Benefits
There are various reasons as to why online programs/courses today have become a widespread and popular type of remote or distance learning, especially in higher education. The online landscape offers unique and exceptional opportunities for many individuals including those whose accessibility to education is limited, and where educators are presented a new model in providing high quality education and dynamic programs/courses that could still be developed.
Learn Anywhere and Anytime
One major advantage of online learning is allowing students to take part in top-quality learning and education when time and distance are reasons why face-to-face learning is tough-to-impossible to achieve. Learners could participate in programs, courses or classes anytime and anywhere in the globe as long as they have connection to the internet and a computer. Moreover, online learning gives physically challenged learners more opportunities to participate in and receive quality learning.
Learn at Your Own Pace with Access to Learning Materials
A lot of virtual or online programs/courses are accessible anytime of the day and week which makes it another advantage. Asynchronous learning and communication via online programs and courses allow working individuals to have time efficiency and be able to balance work, family and learning. Accessibility is not a problem as learners could log into their class/course whenever they have the time and are provided continuous access to course materials, lectures, as well as class discussions making it very convenient for students.
Learning is Student-Centered
In online discussions, each learner responds to the learning materials, such as class lectures and modules, and to comments or responds from other learners. Through this, student’s individual concerns and questions about the topics are addressed. Students, ideally, make their individual inputs and contributions to the learning program/course as they receive a unique blend of information relevant to their learning and needs.
