What are the benefits of online teaching?
Online teaching has emerged as a technology trend in education over the past decade. It has also gained popularity among corporations and training institutes. Following are the three major ways in which online teaching benefits the teachers.
Online teaching is as flexible as it gets: Online teaching is flexible because it is neither time nor location bound. You can schedule classes as and when it suits you and your learners. It saves you the time spent on traveling to-and-fro from a classroom like that in a traditional setting. It gives you the liberty to schedule classes at odd hours like early in the morning or late at night. From the comfort of your home to a camp in the woods, it allows you to teach from any place you deem fit.
Online teaching widens your horizons: While a traditional classroom can have only a selected number of learners, you can reach learners from across the world through online teaching, thus increasing both your classroom strength as well as its diversity.
