The revolution of online learning
Nowadays, the field of education is changing and at the same time growing worldwide.
In many countries, the system is having more relevance because of the quality and the demand as well as the innovative systems. One of the best examples, that we are going to talk about, is the example of online learning in India.
In this time, is known that the new educational system is online learning. The education sector has evolved into a completely groundbreaking situation because of technological and social revolution.
The number of online users is being increased every day, which may be due to multiple reasons. In my opinion, it is related to the need to prevail in an increasingly competitive world in which “face to face learning” is becoming obsolete in costs and content assimilation.
The new educational trends are being reflected in several studies about distance education. That studies had shown that online learning is better than “face to face learning” and its implementation is being more effective because of the different technological and pedagogical systems that are being used, based on marketing and Big Data Systems.
The change of education, based on resistance, causes effective learning following systemic evolution, which drives teaching methodologies with the application of technology disrupting with challenges in the educational world, progressing in the penetration of university as well as corporative education.
The benefits of online education are much higher than negative consequences, nevertheless, legal effects and cautions always have to be take in attention.
According to that, possible legal issues and conflicts in online education like copyright and data protection have to be studied and prevented also in omission and negligence.
Although these issues can also appear in “face-to-face learning”, in online platforms are more sensitive because physical proofs are always recoded in databases although the publications can be modified.
The evolution of online Learning between Europe, America and Asia is being considered at this moment. The leadership in terms of quality and quantity is almost developed in countries like the USA.
According to the database of the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECDE), India is the second country in Asia – in the number of Master and bachelor’s Graduates – in the field after China.
In the statistics of 2016 and 2017, it is reflected how almost people studying “face to face” taking online courses.
Nevertheless, Indian universities learnt from the opportunity, so nowadays Online learning system of India is one of the bests of the world with Universities like Indian Business School or ICFAI University.
It was typical in the past for students to come from India to Europe and the USA to develop their careers in prestigious universities which bring them the opportunity to get their career in these regions. Nevertheless, the situation changed, nowadays not only students from India are becoming leaders of national and international companies with recent universities of the country, but also the number of foreign students coming to India to study is increasing.
People are also coming to India for developing the opportunities that they earn with online and “face to face” Indian Education System.
The arguments of the leadership in the field are simple: easy access, affordability and quality.
First, easy access brings students and professors to share their knowledge from everywhere, as well as to learn from systems that in physical university would have inaccessible costs.
Second, affordability lets students access to have almost university experiences without costs like buying materials or paying for accommodation.
And third, quality Indian and foreign professors bring the opportunity to teach students knowledge that in other times they only could learn in Ivy League network.
It is a fact that online education in India its growing and will continue because of the high demand for professionals in the country.
According to that, this will benefit the economy of the country and the Asian region, because the satisfaction of the needs always extends to satellite countries when the economy is growing, especially with the second phase of development of commercial routes like the Silk Route.
That is why we can affirm with History as a fact, New Europe is coming, and is called Asia.
