The distances have almost reduced to zero with use of computer’s and laptop enabled with internet facility, where we can interact with anyone in the world, online through video conferencing, chat , by calling , and can use all our senses except touch . So why can’t we use this great invention for studying, as a medium of learning. We have made it possible by reaching out to students online and deliver the courses in the same way, as the courses are taught in any normal traditional class; it’s just that now we can be called as techsavvy. So, how it happens in real, I will give the details.
The presenter of a session invites students through e-mail with the link to join a meeting. The link received by student is of an online, web conferencing software which needs to installed and gives you clear guidance on how it is processed and is a onetime activity, which takes very few minutes. After you have installed the software, the e-mail gives you a verification code to enter the meeting.
When you click the option, join meeting, it demands a code, and the student has to fill the code as provided in the mail. After it is verified, you are in a class of students, ready for instruction by the presenter. A window will open at your desktop, which will show you exactly what is happening at the presenter’s end. Now, you put on your headphones and check whether you are on mute mode or unmute mode. If you are able to hear, what the presenter is saying, it’s fine, otherwise there is option to chat, a box is provided and you can write to the presenter, if you are not able to hear or view anything on your screen . The presenter will address it promptly.
Now, you are in a position to view what is happening, hear the interactions of presenter and other participants and can also ask and write, whenever you come with a query or needs clarification on anything what is being taught. This is the way you can avoid traveling and get the best at your home, saving time and money. Moreover, you get a chance to interact with the professionals at different levels in the industry, all around the world.
I assure you, it will be a great learning experience, as rightly said knowledge is power and gain it wherever you get a chance to grab it, and here it is right at your doorstep. Let’s make it a memorable medium of learning, and follow what others will follow, sooner or later.
