We, being humans, the ‘smartest creatures’ of this planet Earth, have the ability to not only learn from our experiences but also we learn today for what we wish to experience tomorrow. The lack of satisfaction in humans is what keeps them going to do more and more and the vast sea of learning materials available online can be said to be the result of that dissatisfaction. How good this dissatisfaction of a bunch of people transforms and affects the entire population of the world can’t be described in words and that is what actually makes us ‘The Humans’ most brilliant species present among all.
Earlier when there were no such online platforms, then the learning opportunities available today didn’t use to be the same too but today as long as You have internet access and you know how to use it for your learning then it doesn’t matter where are you from or what language do you speak in, the thing that matters is your ‘will to learn.’ Take the example of CEOs’ of fortune 500 companies, you will be astonished to know that most of them have suffered a lot in their early stages of career and the only thing that kept them going is to ‘Change’ what they could see around them. The similar thing applies to you too, it doesn’t matter whether you are graduating from the country’s or world’s top institutions or not, it’s you will that will take you to the top. Let’s analyze how lucky are we to have online access to learning opportunities as compared to the past: -
1. Instant Access: How many of you have used dictionaries to search for some spellings and meanings of a word and how do you search a word whenever it hits your mind? Correct, you had to be very alert while searching in dictionaries when you had no online access but now one of the greatest creation in the history of mankind “Google” is there for you to answer the questions that you haven’t even thought of. That was just an example to understand the importance on online sources available now, people had to go through a ton of books to find what they wanted but now it’s easier than the easiest so Instant access to anything and everything today is what learning is all about.
2. Competition: Suppose you have registered yourself at some online learning platform. Now, access to learning what you are learning is not limited to you only, curious learners around the globe can register for the same course too and one thing is clear that you and all of them who are registered are already smarter than the rest of the crowd because all of you had that guts to take your learning one step further. So, the competition that you will receive in such scenarios is what’s going to help you groom a lot. There is a great saying which is “You become just like the people of your circle”, consequently in such a competitive environment, you too will become the best version of yourself which is what makes today’s learning a whole lot different than the earlier learning.
3. Time Management: One common thing or say the quality among all the great peoples in this world is that they know how to manage their time. We all have got the same 24 hours a day and 365 days a year but how is it that some of us become successful in their lives but some are left behind? The answer to this is ‘the skill to manage yourself and your time’. Learning online is not something that most of us do as some full-time activity but the majority of us are involved in some other routine works and we adjust some time out of that to learn something new online thus online learning teaches you to manage your time better and thus leads you to a great future ahead.
There are hundreds of other advantages of Online learning besides the above-mentioned points and it’s good for you to make it a habit to learn things on your own and develop your skill set because that is what’s going to get you whatever you wish to have. ShapeMyApp is one such online platform where you can utilize your time to design an app for you if you have an idea that can be beneficial for any section of the society.
