Challenges before the Indian government and the service providers due to elearning
Elearning has changed a lot of things in the world of education.
This is happening partly because of the pandemic because the learners can’t go to schools. Apart from that, due to the efforts of the Government of India, the internet is available in all the remote corners of India now. The government is also making it a priority to give education a digital form. Many elearning portals have come up where the learners are registering themselves for different courses.
There are other challenges before the Indian government when it comes to elearning.
One of them is that there is a higher lack of internet facilities for students in schools as compared to those in colleges. So the government is all set to fill this paucity. This paucity has to be met whatever be the financial background of students, their location i.e. whether they live in villages.
Prepare students for elearning
It’s also important that students are prepared for mock tests, an integral part of elearning.
There is another reason why the online assessment method of elearning is preferred. It’s because students don’t get whatever they deserve in terms of their careers because the traditional learning methods just focus on memorization. Therefore, elearning is a feasible way to make students understand the practical application of subjects. Many universities like the IIM’s are already taking online exams of students.
More degrees provided through digital mode
The government has also eased the restrictions on colleges offering degrees through online mode. These colleges were not allowed to offer more than 20% of their courses through the digital mode. But now these colleges are allowed to offer a large number of degrees online.
The students are also forced to opt for Indian education. It’s because of the pandemic they can’t leave the country to pursue foreign degrees. However, there has to be immersive content in elearning to make sure students are engaged by it. Here are the following methods to do so:
Technology should be used efficiently
The Education Tech companies have opportunities to make sure that the learning content is suited to the needs of the learners. This can include their academic needs also i.e. what their course requires them to learn. But technology can be used in elearning courses to stimulate excitement in learners. This can be in the form of images, videos and games included in elearning modules.
Blended learning has become the new norm for Indian elearning companies now. This kind of learning combines both synchronous and asynchronous learning which implies that students interact with teachers through video conferencing but have to study on their own also. Elearning companies have to broaden their horizons and offer 3D based learning to students. The students must get artificial intelligence experiences in their elearning modules like chatbots answering simple questions for them.
This is how elearning has been experiencing changes ever since the pandemic hit India.
