Infographic benefits of online courses
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, the chances are that you’ve heard of e-learning.

For those that have been living under a rock, here’s a quick run-down of what online courses are and their benefits.

What Is An ‘Online Course’?

Online courses/ e- learning/ distance learning are all one in the same. All take place via electronic means, be that a laptop, tablet computer or a mobile device, which has internet capabilities.

Typically the majority, if not all, of the learning for these courses takes place via online platforms and virtual training environments. Accessible 24/7 and needing only an internet connection, this learning is fully flexible and can be completed from anywhere in the world.

Why Do People Choose To Study Online?

The e-learning industry has grown by 900% since the year 2000. As online courses have become a more mainstream offering from training providers, colleges and universities over the past few years it has allowed more and more people to access education, whilst remaining in full-time employment.

According to research , there could be as many as 60% of online learners who also work full-time - 46% of online students citing their motivation to take online courses as coming from a desire to advance their careers.

The flexibility and accessibility of online courses means that they are especially suited to those who have time-heavy commitments, but want to expand their knowledge base; whether that be acquiring new skill or building on their existing ones.

In addition, there are the following benefits to studying online:

  • Convenience - learn in the comfort of your own home without the need to travel to and from a classroom

  • Direct contact with an e-learning tutor - a specialist will be on hand to guide, motivate and answer your questions. These tutors will also provide scheduled check-ups to keep you on track during your studies

  • No classroom pressure - not everyone is comfortable learning in a large, classroom based environment. E-learning removes the pressure which can often be felt in classrooms, including keeping up with the rest of the class, and deadline pressures. With online courses you are in charge of the pace of your learning - no rushing means that you can develop a more comprehensive, deeper understanding of your subject area

  • State-of-the-art platforms - using the latest online technology, tools and materials in a user-friendly environment, online study has never been easier!

Furthermore, according to studies, students of online courses can learn up to 5 times more material in less time than classroom based training.
