A child’s education is what the parents or guardians worry the most about and thus it is quintessential for you to encourage and help your child at every step of their journey. More so often than not, as a parent, you succumb to societal pressure and unknowingly transfer that pressure onto your child. One of the many ways you could help your kid in their academic and professional journey is by encouraging them to opt for an online learning.

 

To begin with, what is online learning?

Unlike the conventional learning in a classroom, online learning makes the content available for students digitally. Students can learn online, anywhere and anytime. Instead of physical copies of books, e-learning uses visual content and gamification.

 To help you understand why you should encourage your kid to opt for an online learning, we have listed few perks it offers below.

 

  1. Help them realize their passion:

School or college is a difficult stage for every student. Either they are not sure about which field to pursue graduation in or with time tend to lose interest. Online training can help solve that problem. The duration of the training range from 4-6 weeks and it will help them understand where their interest lies.

Before a student starts looking for opportunities to work, it is essential to establish if he/she is interested in their field of study and have a good knowledge of the subjects.

  1. Help them get an in-depth knowledge

Online training is designed for the masses hence, the training is broken down into several segments and covers the basics quite well. The entire training will have tests and assignments to provide an in-depth knowledge. At times, the syllabus in college might not be updated with the latest developments in the field of study but online trainings help keep them up to date.  Also, the learnings can be put to the final test by completing the project at the end of the training.

 

  1. Help them get experience to test the knowledge attained

Online training would give them an opportunity to test all that they have learned into live situations; academically and professionally. It will help instil confidence in them to change their approach as per the objective rather than the conventional approach. The projects which they would do as a part of the online training will help them apply the theories on to real-life situations. For instance, they could make a new website for their college or an app f as a part of the project. You will get hands-down experience through these projects.

With changing times, there is a dearth of opportunities and less clarity amongst students about what to do next. It essential for a student to discover and realize where their passion lies and have relevant knowledge and experience. As a parent, it is your important that you become a support system for your kid and guide him/her at every step of their journey and not base your judgement on the basis of what the society has to say.

New Delhi: Riding on Chinese brands, the India smartphone market surpassed the US for the first time on an annual level and this is the latest science and technology news, becoming the second-largest smartphone market after China globally — reaching 158 million shipments in the calender year 2019 with 7 per cent (YoY) growth, a report from Counterpoint Research said on Friday.

While Xiaomi continued to be the top player with 28 per cent market share in the calendar year 2019, Samsung was second with 21 per cent and Vivo at 16 per cent market share, said Counterpoint’s ‘Market Monitor’ service.

“Although the rate of growth for smartphone market hit single digit for the first time ever on an annual basis, India is underpenetrated relative to many other markets with 4G penetration in terms of subscribers being around 55 per cent,” said Tarun Pathak, Associate Director, Counterpoint.

“Chinese brands share hit a record 72 per cent for the year 2019 as compared to 60 per cent share a year ago.

“This year, we have seen all major Chinese players expanding their footprint in offline and online channels to gain market share. For instance, Xiaomi, realme, and OnePlus have increased their offline points of sale while brands like Vivo have expanded their online reach with Z and U series,” said Anshika Jain, Research Analyst at Counterpoint.

Over the past four years, Xiaomi, Vivo, and OnePlus have grown 15 times, 24 times and 18 per cent, respectively.

“This highlights that OEMs are mature enough to capture next wave of growth and expand their operations in India,” Jain added.

Samsung shipments remained almost flat (YoY) while it has shown a 5 per cent (YoY) decline in 2019.

“This is for the first time Samsung transitioned to a completely new portfolio targeting different channels (offline with A series and online with M series). However, it needs to double down its efforts to keep the momentum going,” the report noted.

While the smartphone market registered YoY growth, the feature phone market witnessed a steep decline of nearly 42 per cent YoY in 2019 and 38 per cent (YoY) in Q4 2019.

“This is due to slowdown in the new shipments from Reliance Jio. However, the players such as itel, Lava, Nokia and Micromax registered positive annual
growth despite the overall segment declined showing the untapped potential of the market,” said the report.

In fact, itel emerged as the number one feature phone brand in Q4 2019, followed by Samsung and Lava. (IANS)
