How Beneficial is E-learning for Students?

Education has Assessment come a long way since its chalk and board days. There has been a radical transformation in the ways in which education is imparted to students. Unlike the traditional methods, e-learning makes learning both simpler, easier and way more effective, not to mention more flexible and versatile. Here are some of the ways in which E-learning is proving to be beneficial globally:

The biggest benefit arising out of E-learning is the high convenience it offers.

Equality of Education: E-learning enables makes it possible for the educators to attain the maximum level of coverage that can be possible while making sure that everyone receives the same quality of Education; which means that all of the learners receive exactly the same type of training, no matter their backgrounds. Moreover, the students are enabled to study at their own pace rather than taking into account the slowest member of the group.

Pedagogical Approach

E-learning is incredibly cheap when compared with the other traditional forms of learning available. Most online courses are available free or at a fraction of the cost of high fee university courses, because the trainer’s cost, travel, course materials etc are fixed and one time.

Bridging of Barriers: E-learning makes it possible for students to reach the most qualified teachers who happen to be leaders of their respective fields and to gain their expertise. It wouldn’t be feasible for a student to take admission in Harvard or Oxford, to take advantage of their faculty, for instance. But, eDx, Coursera and Udemy etc have made it possible for instructors of that caliber to share their knowledge with the rest of the world. A few years ago, this would have been impossible but now barriers to such distance learning can be efficiently bridged through the e-learning platforms.

Learning Outcomes

Lectures can be repeated multiple times: Unlike the conventional classroom, where the time is short and the teacher can only repeat the lesson once or twice, in a digital classroom, you have the option of accessing the course related content any number of times, you like.


Assessment Methodology: E-learning has incredibly fast delivery cycle timing. It reduces the learning time by at least 25 to 60 percent, since it does not take a long time starting and wrapping up a lesson, no travel time is required and learners have the option of adequately focusing only on those aspects of the course they really need to learn, while skipping that which they already know. Moreover, practically the pace at which learning can be meted out stays limited, since there are always only limited resources available i.e. classrooms, equipment, trainers etc. Students learn and absorb the information being taught at varying speeds or levels that are not uniform, which definitely becomes a bottleneck in the traditional system, resulting in poor grades and a lesser understanding of the subject matter. E-learning has solved this greater problem and made it possible for them to tailor their training to fit their circumstances, thus enhancing and diversifying the learning process.
