We live in an age where technology has touched all the spheres of our lives. Airports, particularly, have begun setting up hundreds of kiosks in the terminal to help travelers take advantage of this digital technology to order food, check flight status, shop, or even play games while waiting to board their flight. If something as simple as a dining experience can undergo a drastic change, it comes as no wonder that the digital age has changed the way we learn.
Digital learning methods have removed the constraints of place and time imposed by old-school classroom arrangements. Students can undertake the training anytime they want, from any part of the world, whenever they find an inclination to do so. Leading digital learning platforms like Udemy, Coursera, Futurelearn, and LinkedIn Learning have made it easier and even more possible for aspirants to access both, information and seek quality education by choosing how, what, and when they learn.
The ability of these education platforms to serve students globally has encouraged a lot of institutes to go all out with a digital approach. Let it be Standford, University of Michigan, or Indian School of Business, or Indian Institute of Management – Calcutta. Not denying the fact that this way of education has made learning personalized, which fits individual needs and preferences.
The downside, however, of the fact that the digital age has contributed to the decline in the attention span of students has pushed more and more academics to embrace training techniques that are crisp, powerful, short, and simplifies complex concepts making them easier to digest.
It’s safe to say, digital learning is no longer the future anymore; in fact, it is the present! Have you been doing enough to leverage this powerful mode of education?
