Do you want to learn something new and keep your mind busy? If so, consider this list of exciting learning resources to utilize during your free time. In this digital age, technology has left its mark on many fields – and education is one of them. Now you can easily participate in remote courses and access online resources, which help enrich your knowledge and skills. Thanks to the internet, sharing information, resources, and expertise has become much more convenient. Indeed, online learning resources have even become essential to both students and educators, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
With traditional education, you obtain knowledge mainly from books. But with our rapidly developing world, the material in textbooks can become obsolete in a matter of months. However, the content of online resources has the possibility of being updated in real-time. In this way, you can acquire knowledge that is entirely up-to-date and relevant. Furthermore, online resources play a great role in the educational innovation process. With access to quality resources, quite literally, at our fingertips, there can be a greater focus on personalized teaching, active learning, and optimized creativity.
Each person learns in a different way and at a different pace. Online learning courses can help personalize lessons according to learning styles, strengths, and needs. Also, access to remote learning resources allow you to choose the topics you are interested in, explore your passions, and develop your talents. For example, Udemy is great for those who love Algebra because it allows the choice of classes and access to materials of varying difficulty levels.
Additionally, learning resources such as YouTube tutorials allow you to learn on your own time and at your own pace – for free. For instance, you can watch this tutorial to learn about exponents or this video to learn about commas. There are many great videos you can save for later review.
Furthermore, e-learning courses can activate imagination and creativity. The innovativeness of technology-based learning resources brings us effective graphics, fun videos, and unique teaching methods that pique learners’ curiosity and excitement. Check out this example from CK-12.
