In this competitive world, just basic education is not enough to achieve great success in one’s life. Every student need something extra and beneficial that can take their career to a different and successful direction. There are different ways to get that extra boosting knowledge and one of them is learning centers.
These learning centers are available both online and offline. According to your comfort, you can pick any of the way. For offline centers, you need to select the best suited learning institute. This includes faculty members who continually revise syllabus to make students learn the new content that has value in present days. These centers provides you an opportunity to learn different subjects under one roof. Therefore, the syllabus to learn is not restricted. Here, faculty members solve all the problems related to their subjects and help them.
Complete syllabus is made as per the student’s need. It is combined with general curriculum and real life teachings. There are learning communities who addresses several issues of society such as increasing fragmentation of studies. It also include efforts to decrease the hostility of student’s towards their participation in different college events. These learning communities strengthen the bond between academic issues and students. It will cost you low but gets you high benefit with successful knowledge.
Students who consider to enroll in an online earning center need to spend their most of the time in reviewing options according to their preferences. There are various schools who are looking for a perfect way to further their education. These schools focuses on providing students with all the skills that they need to excel with all the benefits and times.
Mobile learning in education is a hot topic. What really is mobile learning? In the context of our college’s online program, ‘mobile learning’ means offering our prerecorded lecture videos to students in a mobile friendly format. Though I hesitate to call this mobile learning, I see this format as a way to allow our students to learn ‘anytime and anywhere’.
This week we are analyzing student feedback through the anonymous course surveys we collect at the end of each undergraduate [for credit] course within our online program. One area of focus for this sessions feedback is the prerecorded lecture videos. How do students watch the lectures, i.e. via a mobile device or streaming video? How effective are the lecture videos in delivering content?
Our plan for gathering this data was to determine how students watch the prerecorded video lectures we have for each of our general education classes, and how effective the videos are in delivering the course content (from the student’s perspective).
1. Continuous learning: Up until now, most people relegated “education” to a finite time in their lives: entering school at around five years old and attending school institutions all the way to university. Education had an expiration date, then working life began. This model, which has its roots in the industrial era, is quickly becoming less relevant or applicable to the way we live our lives in the connected age.
2. Educational leapfrogging: With low-priced computers, tablets, and cell phones in the hands of children in resource-challenged communities, many kids who are engaging in technological leapfrogging will have the opportunity to skip past outdated formal school systems, too. This is especially relevant in the case of children living in poverty, who may be denied an opportunity to improve their condition through education because they start working very early to help sustain their families or do not live near schools.
3. A new crop of older, lifelong learners (and educators): A by-product of the continuous learning phenomenon is the fact that the grandparents of children growing up with a touchscreen in their hands–people in their 60s today–are being pulled into M-Learning more than ever, motivated to adoption by the need to stay in touch with their grandkids.
4. Breaking gender boundaries, reducing physical burdens: In parts of the globe where, because of centuries of cultural practices, young women may still not be allowed to access a formal education, mLearning promises to be able to put girls and women of all ages in contact with high-quality education privately and on their own time.
5. A new literacy emerges: software literacy: MLearning could usher in a boom of interest in learning software programming languages, which could very well become a new lingua franca. This is already happening; Numerous startup web-based businesses today such as Codecademy teach people via interactive lessons how to understand and write software programs. Not even a year old, Codacademy has more than a million “students” and has raised about $3 million in venture-capital funds.
The rise of mobile devices with internet connectivity, such as smartphones and tablets, has transformed many aspects of day-to-day life, but perhaps one of the most significant benefits of mobile technology has been its impact on how we learn.
According to research by Blackboard Inc., 67% of school aged children had a personal smartphone in 2011; nearly three times more than in 2006. Additionally, teacher access to smartphones more than doubled from 20% in 2008 to 54% in 2011.
Today, those numbers are higher still, with research by Project Tomorrow showing that 80% of high school students now own a smartphone, and 45% own a tablet.
With connected devices becoming increasingly prevalent and affordable, experts believe that more young people will want to employ mobile devices to make education more engaging and personalize it to suit their specific needs.
