Why Online Educational Platforms are the
needed? The Indian education system has undergone
numerous significant changes over the past
decades. Today the focus is more on providing
practical knowledge applicable in real life
scenario rather than making the students mug up
the concepts, theories and definitions without
actually knowing their meaning and
implementation. The one thing that has played a
critical role in bringing about this drastic
change is the advent of online courses or
E-learning. However, most modern schools and
other educational institution have adopted a
method that combines traditional classroom
teaching with various online programs to help
enhance the knowledge and understanding of
students. Scope of the Online Learning Platforms

    online learning program, India has acquired
    second highest number of online courses
    enrolment. Thus, it proves to be a golden
    opportunity for many who want to be part of this
    race. This sector is expected to grow in future
    due to rapid growth in enrollment rates in such
    programs. Secondly, technological innovation is a
    helping hand for this sector to balance the
    supply and demand ecosystem. Digitalization has
    helped to improve the quality of education and

  • Pros and Cons of the Online Education
  • Due to the inevitable hindrance, there has been a
    growing need of introducing online educational
    platform. Though traditional education system of
    brick and mortar still has its own significance,
    but, E-learning or an online course provides
    more convenience then the former. Where you only
    need availability of smart phone and a good
    speedy internet connection facility.
  • Pros of the Online Education
  • Online education or online courses are way much
    cheaper than offline mode of education.
  • It saves time of commuting, money we pay as fare
    and most importantly energy of students we
    invest to attend offline classes. By this we can

  • effectively work more and allocate much time to
    pursue other activities. Thus, it is time and
    cost effective.
  • Learning has no age with the introduction of this
    platform where from a school student to adult
    person can study any suitable course. Even a far
  • living person who does not have facilities like
    school/college/institutes and cannot come to
    cities can pursue education in order to achieve
    their goals. Thus, it proves to be efficient
  • It allows women, downtrodden classes, and
    deprived people to achieve
  • education and challenge the traditional
    ideologies and norms by breaking the barriers
    both geographically and socially.
  • It helps in imparting knowledge to physically
    disabled people. Those who
  • cannot step outside due to any form of disability
    can open the doors of learning at home and can
    procure degrees, diplomas and build their career
    online courses effectively.
  • Online educational platforms offer more
    individual attention and you meet people from
    diverse culture.
  • Online courses impart you real world skills with
    top class educator.
  • Online courses have so many features to help each
    and every student
  • whether it is queries or doubt. There is a
    feature of chat room, comment facility, e-mail
    etc to facilitate effortless learning.
  • Cons of the Online Education
  • Lack of social interaction - social interaction
    is necessary to build a healthy social life and
    with online learning we have to forgo the
    opportunity to socialize.
  • The digital divide the major challenge in
    virtual learning is disparity in access to
    electricity, internet connection and lack of
    Smartphones and computers is very vast. Many
    people do not have access to required device and
    internet connection especially in rural India.
  • Smartphone other devices both mobile and
    computer are preferable for attending lectures.
    But only 25-30 Indian owns a Smartphone which
    supports the application of virtual learning.
    Only 11-15 of household
  • possess any type of computer, tablets, palmtop

  • Access to internet India where access to the
    internet is pitifully low, the access to
    internet facility is only confined to 27 of
    Indian household. While 66 of Indias
    population lives in villages, only a little over
    23 of rural households have access to internet
    connection. For urban household the proportion
    is 42.
  • Among the poorest 20 households, only 2.7 have
    access to a computer and 8.9 to internet
    connection. In case of the top 20 households,
    the proportions to have access to a computer
    27.6 and 50.5 to access internet connection.
  • Online courses are easier to procrastinate and it
    becomes burden if you do not learn
    simultaneously. These courses give you more
    freedom, perhaps
  • more than you can handle.
  • Online courses require good time management
  • A conductive environment for study is necessary.
    While 37 of households in India have one
    dwelling room.
  • Online courses do not have an instructor
    hounding, to keep you motivated and focused
    towards your study.
  • It can make children addict of technology and
    excess use of technology can
  • impact the mind health of young adults.
  • Technology is the way ahead
  • There has been a significant shift from thinking
    digital to being digital and it has probably
    blessed us with many advantages to internet-based
    courses, but we need to be more developed to
    accelerate the pace of online learning. There are
    several steps required to revamp the existing
    structure of online learning.
  • Also, what is need is to devise a quality
    benchmark for education. Urban, rural and
    underserved hinterlands should be provided equal
    platform to serve growth in overall development
    of educational structure. This sector will surely
    grow in near future due to many factors
    associated with it. Government should also
    encourage startups to come up with new ideas and
    start their business in this growing sector.
