The coronavirus pandemic of 202 brought with it a surge in the need for and usage of technology and the internet. It was our window into the outside world while we were all cooped up at home, allowing us to stay informed about the state of the outside world, whilst helping us stay in touch with the loved ones we couldn’t visit. As well as supplying an endless stream of entertainment, with everything from coffee-making tutorials to Netflix binge watches.
Technology really paid for itself during the times of uncertainty and social distance.
Whilst our time spent indoors during the pandemic has of course taken a toll, there are also some benefits that have come out of this way of working. Many people were able to continue their studies through the use of connective platforms such as Zoom and online learning systems.
E-learning has become an extremely popular way of structuring and running courses, with everything from online tools that add to and supplement learning on part time courses and lower school learning, to courses that are completely online which can be taken wherever the students are in the world.
The possibilities are pretty endless when it comes to online education, and there are many benefits to adding e-learning elements to lessons and courses.
