Strategies To Make The Most Out Of Online Courses You Take

Hey, I know you are planning to enroll for an online course or you have probably applied for it already. Right?

Wondering how do I know about it? Well, why would you wind up on this blog if you didn’t? I guess you are just unsure if you can take those courses with discipline or not & achieve the outcomes that you want out of it.

Well, just like life, online courses are also what you can make out of it. If you go through them religiously & in an organized disciplined manner, you can see it doing wonders, but if procrastination wraps you in it’s blanket, you may miss the goal you were trying to accomplish.

The pandemic has brought a lot of changes in our lifestyles & it was hard but we kinda adapted to it, the same goes for our learning patterns. Since its inception, the online learning market fact suggests that by 2025, it will hit the $325 billion mark with a timeframe of over two decades. Global markets experiencing 30% annual market growth include Thailand, India, China, and the Philippines. Between the years 2020 to 2025, this market will experience a 200% increase.

You might be thinking:

“Why this sudden growth in the number of online learners?”

E-learning enhances the learners’ retention rate to 25% to 60% retention, unlike while having one-on-one tutoring, which has a retention rate of 8% to 10%. This is because one can quickly revisit what they learned, and they tend to have more control over the process.

28% of companies conduct their compliance training through online training.

80% of companies and 50% of institutional students have used an e-learning platform.

E-learning takes 40% to 60% less time for employees and students than conventional learning.

The majority of companies are shifting to e-learning. Around 42% of the institutions have experienced a rise in revenue as some costs, such as travel costs, have been significantly cut.
