If you are thinking of upgrading your qualification and career into a next level, then going online is the best way to do it. And if you are cynical about this advanced mode of learning then let me tell you a story. Desmond Ezuruonye a career-craving ‘ọkunrin’ quit his job from NNPC and went to the UK to fulfil his dream of being entitled with an MBA and staying in the pole position a multi-national company. In almost the same part of the world, Ini Akindele, a 26-year-old Nigerian single woman with a 3-year-old kid bagged the most sought-after degree from the University of Derby without ever having to step out of her birthplace. Well, not that she was a born leader but online learning has made her one. And as a result, Ini is now running Nigeria’s one of the best Cloud Computing company ‘Aseyori’ successfully in Banana Island.
Such is the magnanimity on online learning. It not only makes you qualified enough to compete with this competitive world but also arms you with what you need to stay ahead of the trend. Distance learning, to be precise, reveals the bliss of acquiring knowledge in any circumstances. If you are keen enough to learn something – anything online learning is the perfect leeway to start. Here is why this technologically advanced approach of education is becoming more and more relevance these days.
Thinking out of the box.
Online learning is new in nature and vibrant too. To be honest it is the brain-child of this era of new technology. And today’s learners are digital natives, they understand the language of technology better than anything else. And online learning offers knowledge in this language. It’s true that taking this mode of education to learn is a big step but to quench the thirst of knowledge learners are motivated enough to take that risk. And this bold decision of theirs furnishes their future.
A step ahead.
Whenever you are thinking of taking an online course you are a step ahead of the rest. You avoid quitting your job and bank on online learning institutions to advance your career to make sure an uninterrupted professional career along with an upgraded educational qualification. This is the killer approach to making yourself stand out.
A perfect blend.
A perfect blend of what you need and what you are offered – that’s what online learning is. And this is where traditional on-campus learning falls behind. Education rendered by traditional learning institutes are somewhat inadequate and incomplete. E-learning is undoubtedly fulfilling the hiatus between the kind of knowledge that are being imparted and the hands-on experience suffused with a up-to-the-minute education that is required.
Finally, it’s convenient.
Online education is much more flexible than the traditional one as this mode of education is offered through the internet. This means whether you want to improve your skills, enhance your chances of employment online learning is going to give you all the necessary facilities you need – from taking the course from your home to choosing the right course for you notwithstanding your educational and socio-economical background.
These are a very small fraction of what distance learning can offer you. So again, if you are thinking of upgrading your qualification and career into a next level go online! Oh! I almost forgot to end the story I began in the opening of this article. Desmond is the ex-husband of Ini and currently working as a process manager at Aseyori.
