In general, we can say that online learning makes education easier. Also, we live in a place where society is getting updated day by day. Therefore, even the facts and figures of different subjects are changing at a very fast pace. So, to be with the flow is almost impossible if we are not able to get hold of the well-run facts. E-learning, on the other hand, can help us get acquainted with the same.
· More education, more knowledge: E-learning makes education available for all with the help of technology. For those who were somehow ejected by their employers for the reason of not having updated knowledge about their filed, can now get their facts clear with the help of the several online degrees. Without having to be at the university, they can now polish their skills sitting at home.
· E-learning negates geographical obstacles: E-learning actually breaks down the geographical barriers. Suppose a student is now sitting at India and he/she wants to get a degree from the UK, he/she can easily get it online, through the various well-known UK Universities.
· E-learning is affordable: Every year, millions are spent over the education system which incorporates the managing cost of the students, in the infrastructure of the institutions, etc. also, the parents of the learners spend unending penny to support the education of their children. So, if the same degree is now available online, that too at a much affordable price, the students as well as the government can save a lot of funds.
· E-learning saves time: Researches have shown that e-learning is time efficient as well. This is much better for the educators as they now will get more time for their research work. E-learning simply negates the time of travelling to the universities and coming back home. Hence, it saves a lot of time as well.
· E-learning is adjustable: Often we see that bright youngsters not able to get higher education degrees just because they are physically disabled. Just because they need to sit on the wheel chair doesn’t mean that they are anyway lesser than all of us. Hence, e-learning provides a solution for them as well. Sitting at home they can now go through their online course and get a degree from their favoured universities.
· E-learning has high recognition: In some of the countries, e-learning is quite popular. E-learning or net based education has got much recognition and therefore the fact that e-learning is lesser than traditional education doesn’t hold good anymore.
· E-learning is global: With the advent of the internet, the world is getting smaller now. So, e-learning also has its own share in making the world a small one. It has made education global by offering courses for the learners of different parts of the earth. Traditional learning couldn’t do this ever.
· E-learning is technologically updated: Today, children are born in the modern home with the facility of internet and laptops. Internet has made so many things easier. Hence, in future they will be able to communicate with their peers on a global platform, in a much better manner than we do now. So, even the education system will be changed for the good.
Development of online learning was indeed a great initiative and it only aims at the betterment of the individual by offering them knowledge about their desired subjects at their comfort. It has made a fact clear that education knows no boundary and also no matter whether the learner is 16 or 60, he/she can always get a degree of his/her choice, from his/her most preferred institution, at any point of time.
