Indian societal mores have always supported high education and values. The trend to use education as a ladder to success and improve your place in the social fabric is age old. It is still an important criterion where social advancement is concerned. The sheer number of applicants to the higher education framework has often been a deterrent to admissions and hence employment.
In the absence of adequate facilities ELearning has come as a breath of fresh air. The scope of eLearning as a ladder to socio economic success is not really far-fetched. If harnessed properly this mode of delivering education can be adapted to use fewer resources but give better results that bridge the existing gap. Internet is already a mature tool to gain information in India with the penetration amongst the youth being high both in rural and urban areas.
Applications like EDUNGURU bridge this gap by marrying technology to traditional education delivery systems. The technology aided platform is a boon to students situated in rural or remote areas where there is a lack of basic infrastructure and teachers alike. The smart curriculum based study material makes the content engaging and in-depth.
The best feature of the ELearning methodology is perhaps the fact that teachers are available around the clock. Most government aided schools and colleges face the dearth of quality teachers. This malady is very often present in private colleges too. There is also a gap in the delivery of practical education that makes a student job and life ready. The nature of the ELearning is such that these factors are not significant in imparting learning. Teachers can teach remotely, assign work and even conduct an assessment. The system is made robust by using cutting edge technology.
Some students are looking at conventional education as a backup to their career plans that include Arts, Culinary, Design or even sports and such. These students often face absenteeism in conventional schools as their practice time encroaches on the school time. If these students can access classes as per their own schedule, they can bridge the difference and still do academically well. This is also true for fast learners and slow learners too.
The flexibility in timing, pace and the sheer number of advanced classes available online is globally accepted as the new trend in education. If steps are made to scale the operations and proper government guidelines are adhered to ELearning can be the ladder to socio- economic change in India.
