“A huge population is shifting towards a creative and innovative mode of education or learning: known as online e-learning” reports BM Magazine. “Gone are the days when the only mode of education for a student was to attend the physical classes and institutions.”

Electronic learning refers to the concept of attending classes and/or gaining knowledge over the internet. Software available enhances and complements the idea of the classroom via online means.

Irrespective of time zone or location via e-learning you still have access to your class.

But how does online e-learning benefit classes and why does a blended learning strategy improve both the pupil and the school? This blog post explains.

What is online e-learning?

E-learning refers to a learning system that we can obtain through the internet using an electronic device. It can also be referred to as online learning or online education. The ‘e’ in online elearning stands for electronic.

The term may refer to a network that can provide one-to-one learning or a group of individuals.

How has e-learning become incredibly popular?

The start of 2020 was characterised by the coronavirus pandemic. The world underwent complete lockdown or small-scale lockdowns, and schools were closed.

As a result schools and other educational institutions had to come up with smart ways to continue the learning process for students.

What are the benefits of electronic education or learning?

Some of the benefits of online learning are:

1. Safety and Safeguarding

Online learning is safer way of the learning. It’s not just about the current pandemic – where staying away from school can protect children and their families – you are also away from the dangers of normal life. A range of safeguarding mechanisms are built into EDClass so that any issues can be quickly identified and dealt with by the school and other authorities if appropriate.

2. Flexibility

Online learning provides the benefit for teachers to be able to access the class from any location – and it is the same for the pupils. It has allowed universities and other higher education providers to market themselves to a worldwide audience as well as create a comfortable learning environment for your child. Worldwide many office staff are still working from home meaning they can be there to support their learning.

3. Cost

Since your not travelling to the classroom, or paying for classroom resources, it means online e-learning can take place for comparatively low cost.

To use online learning all that is required is a computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone and an internet connection. It means the cost for the process is zero and many of these costs are absorbed by the home owner.

In the current climate, the cost savings of not having to send children to school is a welcome resource.

4. Accessibility

 With e-learning students can access programmes wherever they are in the world. For places such as universities, it means students can enjoy their classes from thousands of miles away.
