Online learning has become a fruitful solution for individuals who prefer knowledge and skills over degrees. As scholars were keenly looking for affordable, accessible, engaging, and interactive learning solutions that can add value to their learning and shape their careers, online learning came for the rescue. Online trainings not only help students retain more information but open a way for interactive learning. Students not just watch videos to passively consume information but they get an equal opportunity to actively immerse into exercises, quizzes, assessment tests, industrial projects and a lot more. While online learning has become a companion for scholars, working professionals are also making huge benefits out of it. 

In the past few years, the credibility of online trainings has grown effectively. Apart from adding value and fun to traditional forms of education, online trainings support and encourage the students, provide them with the opportunities to implement their learnings, assist in professional development, and increase their chances of getting hired. 

Apart from flaunting the skills acquired through completing one such online training, there are multiple things that you can add to your resume. Some of these are mentioned below-

  • Hands-on exercises and industrial project – Online trainings usually include a lot of assignments, assessment tests, code challenges, quizzes, and exercises to make way for active learning. This ensures that apart from spending time on the audio-visual lectures, you also get an equal amount of time to experiment with what you have learnt. All of these interactive activities give you the creative freedom to implement your learning effectively. At the end of every training, you get to work on a fully-fledged industrial project that can enhance your practical understanding. The industrial projects vary as per the training. For example, you have to design an e-commerce website in web development training, design an end-to-end predictive model for a financial firm in data science training, come up with your own blog and design a complete digital marketing strategy for it in digital marketing training, and so on.

  • Placement training – Pre-placement period can become extremely stressful for students as they have little to no idea about handling interviews and presenting themselves in front of the panel. Moreover, there are times when your unsuccessful previous interview encounters daunt you more than anything. To boost confidence, it is important to learn from professionals. Fortunately, online trainings ensure that you get a complimentary placement training along with any of the training programs that you enrol into. The placement training usually trains you in resume writing, cover letter writing, email writing, and gives you important tips to stand apart from the crowd during interviews. The placement training gives you a beneficial head start for any of your future internship or job applications.
  • Training completion certificate – Certificates act as evidence of professional credibility. Training completion certificates are usually provided after you successfully complete every module and pass the final test with a minimum qualifying score. While hiring, a lot of employers usually prefer those applicants who have completed skill-based trainings from recognised platforms and have a certificate of the same. Inclusion of certificates in your portfolio clearly defines that you have invested your valuable time in learning new skills actively. Moreover, it gives a fair picture to the employers of why selecting you over other applicants who have no proven certificate course or skill would be better for them. The certificates usually have a unique number that can be used by your college authorities or future employers to verify your certification.

E-learning platforms offer huge liberty for those who aim to learn new skills at the comfort of their home. Adding up to the above-mentioned benefits, online trainings ensure that during the training, in case you face any doubts and queries, you are provided with full support through forum query. While being affordable and accessible, online trainings fulfil your aim of learning in-demand skills without sacrificing valuable time out of your college or work schedule.

Let’s find out what scary scenarios may happen to you unless you’re paying due attention to that and how to avoid being trapped into digital dangers for your identity.

First of all, let us start with the popular background check tools that use open governmental and private sources to gather all the information available about you in one place. You might be surprised by the amount of data available freely about you online and that you are not aware of it. Those types of tools fall under the Open Source Intelligence category apps.

Digital footprint

Any emails you ever replied or received, every post you shared on Facebook, every selfie you uploaded on Instagram – all of that creates your digital footprint identity. Anything that was ever said or done on the Internet will stay there forever and that is one of its foundation stones. Clicking on “accept cookies policy” button will help the webmasters track the activity you perform on their websites and since this kind of info is stored somewhere, you will add that to your digital footprint. Most of the digital footprint types can be divided into two main groups: “active” and “passive”.

  • “Passive” are the ones you leave unconsciously or in some cases without even know about that. For example with the data tools such as Google Analytics, the website owners are tracking how many visits or clicks were obtained from your IP, location or country. Since most of such processes are going unnoticed and you were not going to send that data over, you may not even realize that something is collected.
  • “Active” footprints are the ones you choose to share over the web. Posts from your social media accounts or your contact details on various forums or Web 2.0 pages are classic examples of your active digital footprint. Once you log in to some shared directory from your working desk and make changes to something that is visible for everyone with access is another example of the active footprint.

How to find your online presence?

One of the most obvious ways to find yourself online is by using some of the most popular search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo, Yandex etc. In case you are aware of the digital footprint you leave or simply don’t want your search history to be revealed, try DuckDuckGo or use Incognito mode in Google Chrome. The Tor browser is another great option to be considered.

You can also use such people search directories like Nuwber, OneRep, BeenVerified or Instantcheckmate or simlply what info you already shared on social media with the help of FB People Directory or Facebook Email Search.

What identity theft can lead to?

Financial aspect – you won’t believe that but once the information about you was leaked it may be used for years after that, leading to fraudulent activity on your credit card, cleaning your bank account, to get a job, using our SSN or get tax return instead of you.

Emotional aspect – once you reveal that your identity was stolen you might encounter such things as being in constant stress or feel anxious. In some cases, people can commit suicide as they don’t have the power to stand against that. Just imagine someone’s calling you and demanding to pay the credit you never asked. The result may be quite tragical.

Physical aspect – your identity being stolen may result in stomach pains and headaches, inability to work or think properly.

Social aspect – since we all live in a digital world, identity theft may lead to losing your job or spoiling your reputation in some cases. Once such a case is revealed, you need to ask for professional help from the governmental or private institutions, depending on the severity of a problem.
