With the rapidly changing situation due to the COVID-19 outbreak, many institutes, including Charles Sturt Study Centres, have implemented online learning to on par with the demanding coursework – they adamantly believe that there’s no point in wasting your precious time with the delay.
With Charles Sturt University, Study Centres, having embraced this change, a fellow student would wonder, how effective is learning online. In answering that question, we could say that it is effective in a number of ways. Some research (according to the World Health Organization) shows that on average, students retain 25-60% more material when learning online compared to only 8-10% in a classroom. This is mostly due to the students being able to learn faster online; e-learning requires 40-60% less time to learn than in a traditional classroom setting because students can learn at their own pace. Further, it would greatly complement with CSU’s high standard of education, ensuring that students remain connected and well-engaged via face-to-face virtual meetings, lectures and workshops via zoom or other tools
Moreover, another major benefit would be that online education provides students with the chance to network with peers across nations or even different continents. This often leads to other opportunities in terms of collaboration with other individuals in the implementation of a project. At the same time, it would be an entertaining learning environment to students, due to the sheer novelty. Furthermore, online lectures can easily get personalized attention to students, in case they need to further clarify concepts, because it is relatively easier to continue the discussion at a later time or date with the convenience associated with online learning. Thus students have the chance of performing well in their respective studies due to this versatility.
All in all, Charles Sturt University, Study Centres are hoping to resume with on-campus teaching as soon as possible and support students to smoothly transition to on-campus learning when the time comes. Till then, they urge students to take the maximum benefit from the online lectures to their advantage.
