As each of us are navigating the impact of COVID-19 on our lives in different ways, the education has made a huge shift from traditional methods of learning to online classes. The schools all over the globe have been shut down with almost 1.2 billion children studying from home. As per an article by the World Economic Forum, there’s recently been a research conducted that shows that there is an increase in retention of information among students and it takes less time.
In fact, lot of reputed professors and educationalists are also happy that they are able to reach more students without any geographical and time barriers. This means, there is a high possibility that some of the changes made by the coronavirus will be here to stay!!
But if Online Learning is actually effective?
The only challenge online learning could have is the access to internet and a computer. Since our main focus lies on the impact of e-learning in the UK and here, majority of the learners do have the right technology. Once this need is fulfilled, online learning is certainly rising up as an ultimate solution to the new post-COVID-19 lifestyle.
Some research reveals that in comparison to face-to-face learning where retention rates are just 8-10%, e-learning projects have an average retention rate of 25-60%, which is a remarkable improvement. Going a step further, there are a lot of online learning platforms offering self-paced courses that move as per the pace of an individual child bringing them confidence to learn at their own speed with no peer pressure, though not omitting the crucial element of competition.
LearnHive, is one such platform that offers interactive online courses on 11Plus, SATs with multitude of engaging features that make the learning fun and effective. Already used by hundreds of students all across the UK, it helped a lot of students reach their desired Grammar Schools last year and is again on roll with even more interesting features. One of the LearnHive’s student, says:
“LearnHive is excellent! Thank you for stretching my understanding and working speed. It has helped me pass my 11 Plus exam, well pleased.”
