Online Learning – The online education system has been in effect for almost two years now. The system came into effect during the first lockdown imposed across the country due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This system of education introduced to the teachers and students many new methods, tools and modes for completing their tasks and making the online experience of teaching and learning better. This system of education not only offered better opportunities and opened new doors for those who were dedicated to learning but also gave them new tools and techniques of enhancing their knowledge base and creating a strong foundation for the future.
Online learning is a concept that was popularised during the online education system was in effect. Students can use online resources to understand and learn the topics that are a part of their syllabus better and also get additional information on the subjects that are a part of their curriculum. Online learning was used by many students even before it became common after the online education system came into effect. Students used online resources and tools for completing their homework, making projects and assignments and also reading and exploring more about the topics that deeply interested them.
Online learning is the future of learning. There exist a wide range of apps and websites that can be used for online learning. Just like there is a mobile teacher app and other mobile apps to facilitate teaching, there are mobile apps that can be used by students for online learning. Mobile apps for learning offer better flexibility and allow the students to learn from anywhere and at any time as per their convenience. This also ensures that no matter where the student is, he or she can involve in studying and learning to make the most of their free time.
There are two main modes of online learning- live mode and recorded video mode. These two types of classes can be attended using different platforms that offer the features for conducting and attending these classes. Other than the platforms meant for online learning students also use popular streaming apps and video libraries to learn online and gain more knowledge on different topics. Accessing e-books and e-libraries is also a method that students use for online learning.
Online learning offers access to resources from across the world. A student sitting in a small town in India could be learning from books available at a library in the United Kingdom. The possibilities are infinite and the students can make the best of this opportunity of online learning by using all possible sources and resources.
You have the option to choose from a wide range of apps and websites. You can choose the mode of learning that goes well with your timetable and also suits your learning capability and ability.

Online learning is also a great way for self-study as well. This method of learning offers a wide range of features and is also beneficial in multiple ways for the students. Online learning supports self-study as this method of learning offers more choices and better options to choose from. The students can decide whether they wish to take live classes or recorded video classes or only wish to access e-books and books from libraries across the world for getting additional reading material. The students can also decide when to study and which platforms to use for the same. They can also decide which apps or websites are better for their learning style and learning method. The students also have the option to choose from handwritten and typed notes and can make notes that are easier for them to learn from and also easier to maintain.
Online learning must hence be the method for self-study even when schools and colleges re-open.
