You can learn online almost anything that is useful in your daily life, career, and business. Teachers, Trainers, and Experts use the internet as teaching platforms. All educators get a variety of options to connect and communicate with the students around the world. The form of education is online courses, degree, free video tutorials, articles/blogs, social media, podcasts, eBooks, live class, and many others.
Learning and getting educated in this technology era is more personalized. The Internet is not a replacement for schools, colleges, and universities. Apps, websites and digital content are addons for students and it makes them more powerful, educated, connected.
So, what are the things that you can learn online? The answer is simple, search on Google whatever you want to learn and start. But is it that easy?
Millions of people have internet access today, but not all know, what to search on Google. It’s very easy to follow, what others are telling you to learn. But what you need to learn is more important.
For example, you’re learning about how to create a website, YouTube channel, online course, etc. But you can also search for how to create the next version of Social Media Websites. How to solve current and future problems.
But learning is a stepwise process. You can learn anything. But it’s not sure you will understand that. For example, before learning or knowing about the basics of computers, it’s not that useful to learn about online business. First, you have to learn the basics of anything that you want to learn and work for.
I have found this problem in thousands of students. They have tools, laptops, the internet and almost all the facilities of learning. Even they are already learning computer skills online. But still many find it clueless what to search on google, what to learn related to their skills.
And another problem that I found is that they only learn that is in the syllabus and degree. They don’t learn extra from the training module. I know the online courses/degrees are developed by experts and professors/teachers. But they have created that 1 year, 10 years ago. Today, things are different.
The training module that was important yesterday is more advanced today. Within 24 hours, many things change and get updated. Students have to connect themselves with the right information and educational sources.
So that’s why I thought to write this article. So that I will give you examples and my personal views on what you can learn online related to your online degree, online courses and offline degree and course. It’s not the replacement of what you’re already learning. But it’s an addon (extra, but important) concepts that you can also follow.
