Emerging new technologies in online learning

As we are moving forward into the 21st century, what are the new innovations or inventions that can help in bridging the gap between the students and the teachers? We have witnessed what the internet is capable of doing in the last decade. And it’s even more interesting to witness the new and emerging technologies. What has science and technology to offer us in the near future that can significantly have an impact on the way we educate our students.
It has been observed that the steady increase in the cost of education has led to the decrease in the student enrollments. This has led to the increase in demand for distance education and online education.

Due to the developments in information technology and the internet, students are interested and are eager to explore the new ways of interactive learning. Students find the interactive learning more interesting than the conventional learning.

• The internet is emerging as the global body knowledge and easily accessible, the trend toward internet based learning has increased steadily over the years and in particular in the present decade.

• With innovations like online meeting and conferencing now available at very low costs, the inclination toward e-learning has increased further. This means that students can attend classes from anywhere.

• Recent advancements in telecommunications like 3G and 4G services means that, with high speeds of accessing the internet from virtually anywhere, downloading academic information is just few clicks away.

• With products like Tablet PCs being available in the market for low cost, students are really interested in the features that they hold in terms of digital writing surface and video conferencing.

• Next generation software development can give way to more and more interactive websites that can offer a whole range of learning experience to students.

• Students find it comforting to use social networking sites to be in touch with peers and teachers and sharing their knowledge. With the rise in popularity of online video websites, students can record the classes so that others can watch the recorded classes.

• Emergence of other technologies like voice-to-text translators have a potential to change the face of online tutoring as students and teachers can interact by using these translators and do not miss out on important things.

• Gaming and simulations can be a better and fun way of learning as students can learn both the theory as well the practical application of the study can improve.

One of the main reasons for many to have an interest in online learning is that they can run all year long. Many students who have dropped out can continue with their education. Online education can help educating the students from rural areas where the facilities are less compared to the urban areas. Students will be put in pressure as is seen today, but they can learn at their own pace.

Yes, its definitely a trend which is picking up. As you've said, the cost of education is increasing. The education industry has become a big industry today worth billions of dollars. When the Government says everyone must be educated and stuff, the words come from the mouth and not from heart. And about the trends, yes I think internet has the capability to deliver more. Anyways, nice work. Hope to see an article from you.

Yeah, I agree with you. The cost of education has increased dramatically. For an MBA degree one has to shed atleast $150000 to $200000. This is an exhorbitant cost. If there is a simple and easy way around it, why dont we take it? Today internet is the next big thing. I mean, we can know anything right from our new neighbor to a total stranger with the help of internet. Internet has the power to change everything as we know it. If we are able to tap into the vast resources of the internet, then I think nothing is impossible for us. Thanks for the article. A good one.

In fact the most important contribution of the inernet is knowledge sharing. Whether it is the case of big multinationals or an individuals, everyone in this century is dependent on it. So why not the students? The online tutoring helps in creating a netwrok wherein both the students and the tutors can interact and share the knowldge and ideas. The flexibilty of such learning system will indeed help the students.
