Learning has seen a major transition in the last decade. For years, students have been using only textbooks for their study, which actually made the entire learning system boring. Today, printed textbooks have been replaced by digital learning software. Students are now using laptops, tablets and other learning tools instead of textbooks. While students are embracing technology, which has made learning more fun for them, and parents are happy that their children are finding learning interesting, and thus performing better in their academics, digital learning has become quite popular among teachers as well. Today, we see that schools and colleges are introducing eLearning as one of their core forms of learning methodology.
Digital learning has several benefits, which are highly unlikely to be found in a typical age-old classroom setting. This is only because, it is powered by technology, thus offering attractive benefits.
Personalized learning method: Digital learning can be easily customized by teachers, according to a class’s need and even every student’s need. Based on the student’s strong and weak areas, the learning method adopted for each student can be different, suiting their requirement and goals. With this facility, teachers can bridge existing gaps for each student, and help them in achieving their academic goals.
Interactive content: Learning through software comes with interactive content, which includes videos, audios, quizzes, puzzles, and games, making the entire learning process more fun. Students rather get driven to this fun way of learning, and tend to spend more time on it. If the content is interesting, grasping and retention becomes easier for students.
Regular assessments and real-time feedback: Students can take assessments after every chapter, to know how well they have understood the concepts. Students can also take the assessments multiple times for more practice. The real-time feedback from software helps in better learning of concepts. The system tracks the scores of students and allows teachers to see students’ progress at both individual level as well as class level.
More organized way of learning: It comes with calendars, prompts and reminders and helps students to stay up to date on the curriculum.
Embedded with artificial intelligence: The software analyses the scores of students in assessments to determine their strongest and weaker areas. If students are able to solve easier problems in their strongest areas, then the software can be programmed to show more complex questions. More questions on the weaker part can be given to improving the student’s overall knowledge in the subject.
Boosts student performance: The gamification in digital learning makes the student stay in the system for a longer period. Intelligent software determining the weaker areas and throwing questions at them has helped students in bridging gaps in their learning. In this way, students can show the best performance by securing best grades.
Teacher’s life has become easier: Tracking every student’s performance manually is a highly difficult task. This is where the software has become the best partner for teachers. Since students are finding adaptive learning more fun, and they are also performing better by way of this method, teachers are spending less time in lecturing. They mostly intervene when students require help from them.
The Role of Digital Publishers in Elearning
In today’s fast moving environment, teachers are constantly looking at adopting digital learning in schools and colleges. As a result, eLearning companies are enormously depending on digital publishing solutions, in order to offer the best digital learning experience for students and teachers. At the same time, demand for interactive content has shot up to the greatest heights. Content writers, editors, and proofreaders with good academic knowledge have become the most valuable employees offering high ROI to digital publishers.
