July 24, 2017: Technology is everywhere and online tutoring from your smartphones and laptops using a computer-generated application and internet connectivity is the new cool for teenagers.
At a time when the world is moving towards personalized services, the education sector is not far behind. If you ask your parents, or if you are a parent yourself, you might have apprehensions about studying on a computer device. However, for today’s children, who are exposed to technology from an early age, technology-assisted learning makes for a booming industry.
Recent times have witnessed a surge in various online tutoring startups that enable an enhanced way of learning and delivering private coaching right at your doorstep using technology as a key driver.
PROS OF ONLINE TUTORING
- A chance to connect with educators in meaningful and efficient ways from anywhere in the world
- Access to one-on-one learning in real time helps produce high levels of academic achievement
- The amount of content and reference material on these portals is enormous
These computer-generated applications host lessons on mobile devices and also provide students with comprehensive reference resources and recorded lessons. This gives the student a chance to watch again, or meet with a tutor even when he is not in physical proximity; so long he has an internet connection.
If the current trend persists, this might be the end of in-home tutoring and the beginning of an academic revolution.
