There are a million and one things that can delay or derail a student’s educational progress. Some of the more common reasons include:
• An injury from a car accident
• An unexpected illness
• Weather-related traffic headaches
• A sick child
• Caring for an elderly parent
These, of course, are just some of the things that can interrupt a person’s education. However, with online learning and a comprehensive e-learning platform such as ELEARNINGFORCE`s SharePoint Learning Suite, students can overcome these obstacles to education.
The good news is that dynamic online learning experiences aren’t for only non-traditional students, older learners and those with families. A variety of students, instructors and educational institutions are seeing value in online learning and incorporating it into their plans.
Take the school systems, for example. It is affected by adverse Australian weather conditions for example floods, tropical cyclones and general heavy weather systems. This affects thousands of students every year. These events delay student’s curriculum and some are forced to do out of school hours study just to catch up.
Some caring and committed high school teachers refused to let the shuttered school doors keep them from providing a high quality education for their students. So, they turned to online learning and programs such as the SharePoint Learning Suite.
With online learning tools, teachers were able to create instructional videos, post assignments online and keep students on track. Every topic can be explored as it was intended to be and not rushed through in an attempt to finish on time.
Doing this has educational advantages, but also financial benefits. Depending on each state’s laws, schools may be able to use cyber days toward their state-mandated count days, saving money in the summer by not having to open the doors, turn on the air conditioning, use toiletry supplies, send the buses out on their routes and have maintenance and janitorial staff present.
Both students and parents appreciate the innovative, media-rich courses provided through ELEARNINGFORCE`s SharePoint LMS.
At the end of the day, students of all ages can stay informed and engaged whether in the classroom or at home and the school’s finances benefit as well. Now that’s a win-win situation for all – regardless of Mother Nature or other circumstances.
