New Challenges in Education: Traditional Vs Online

28 May 2021


Getting Education is a prime privilege in the life of every person. Education transforms the person from a layman to an informed one. Education lights up and uplifts one to a different level. Now we are living in a digital world. All sectors including the Education sector have either switched over to digital mode or are fast adapting the digital mode. Though, the education sector moved slower in comparison to any other field, only three changes have had happened from Vedic time around the time 2000. That was, education style changed from gurukul to classroom mode. The second one, few classrooms got digital projectors. Think how much slow and backward was our education system? After 2000, the Indian education field started growing from conventional to digital. That made a great boom in the education arena encomposing all stake holders, through some peoples don't have a clear idea about online educations yet. Let us examine online education vis-a-vis the traditional education system.

Learners India - a learning tool, is fine-tuned for the students to overcome the disruptions caused by the Pandemic- Covid-19. Learners India, seized of the development, analyses, and differentiates between now discontinued traditional classes and new age’s online classes and has come out with a customised solution in the form of a unique online Learning Management System(LMS). It supplements, complements and strengthens the online education system. By switching over to LMS the monotony associated with the online classes are ameliorated to a great extent.

When we swich over to classes adapted to Learning Management System, multimedia tools like video, audio, text, image etc are effectively integrated to make learning interesting. Online Education through video stream presently comprises 80% of internet traffic globally. The main reason for this is unlimited potential and utility of audio-visuals tools in imparting education while the students active participation and presence ensured simulatenousy. Syllabus revision and customising even pedagoggy(method of teaching) is possible if found necessary. Distributed Learning beyond any time zone and geography has made online learning seamless. Smartphones, tabs, laptops etc. the usual tools used for online learning can be used for LMS as well.

Examination can be conducted by various methods; instant publication of results helps evaluate the standard of each student and prompt and corrective actions taken i ntime help the students. The defects in our conventional education system are upper age restrictions, exorbitant tuition fees, school’s infrastructure, limited courses, etc, whereas an online education, demands only a passionate mind for studying or the willingness for exploring new vistas in education. Professionals, people degree-holders are the prime beneficiaries of online education. Even there exists an option to restart their dis-continued education easily through online classes.


Education is the price point for the success of students. A teacher may be equipped to offer a good level of education to all students of the class though specific attention to each and every student may not be possible. However, online education bridges this gap thereby imparting knowledge to everyone equally without subjecting them to the rigours of a boring classroom atmosphere.


In the conventional education system, we have lots of obstacles. One of the drawbacks is the non-unavailability of any particular course.
