The pandemic seems to have affected almost every kind of business out there. From retail to hospitality, from financial services to gaming. No one industry has not been impacted. One of the only industries to be bucking the downward trend, however, seems to be online learning.
We’ve all heard the horror stories of university students being locked up in their rooms. We’ve also seen schools closed for significant periods of time. What this has enabled, however, is for a new way to teach students. Well, not that new, just an expedition in the adoption rate.
Necessity makes us do a lot of things and online learning has been a major winner in an otherwise depressing world. From fitness classes with Joe Wicks to learning about biology, pretty much everything and anything has been covered.
Online learning is on demand. This means it’s there as and when you need it to be. You don’t have to wait for the class to start at a certain time – unless you’ve opted in to live classes – and you can watch and learn at your leisure.
The only downside has been the broadband connection. A minor price to pay for education and many parents and guardians have been more than happy to upgrade for some peace and quiet.
