Learn! Learn! Learn! Never Stop!

“Get over the idea that only children should spend their time in study. Be a student so long Learn! Learn! Learn! Never Stop!as you still have something to learn, and this will mean all your life.” – Henry L. Doherty

Learning knows no age barrier. If a person wants to learn s/he can learn at any stage of life. Today’s generation likes learning. They don’t like to sit idle. Even they don’t want their parents to sit at home and just doing house hold works.

One day I visited to my friend’s house. She was busy with her kids. Her daughter has French language as an extra subject and my friend was very upset because her daughter needed some help related to that subject and my friend did not know anything about that. I told her to learn French language. She replied that she wants to learn but there is no coaching center in her city where coaching for French language is available.

This problem is not of my friend only. There are many women and lots of people who want to learn many thing but they have to face distance constrains. They want to sharpen their skills under the guidance of an expert but because they have no facilities near about they have to be disappointed.

So, for how long it should be go like this, how can we change the situation for those who wants to learn?

The only solution of this problem is E-Learning. E-learning comprises all form of electronically supported learning and teaching. Anyone can teach from anywhere and anyone can learn anything from anywhere. E-learning is the solution for those who face distance as a barrier in their path of learning.

Different coaching centers, teaching institutes, educational institutes can give online learning facilities. This will cut their workload and will give a way to those who wants to learn from home or to those who has no spare time to go for coaching centers.

Learning Management System is the best tool for providing E-Learning. With a LMS a person/institute can give its services worldwide and LMS can make their work easier. LMS has different features and modules according to the needs and requirements of a person. It is available in a bundle of features or even single-single modules are also available. One can choose according to need.

Here we can see what all features does a whole package of LMS has-

  • Student’s record keeping
  • A place for recording staff/faculty data.
  • Easy registration.
  • Course creation.
  • Managing course schedule.
  • Document upload.

  • Pictures or any kind of document uploading.
  • Notes making facility.

  • Complete hold of teacher to manage course requests.

Apart from these features there can be some more features/modules with a LMS-

So, LMS has removed the barrier of distance and now a person can learn anything from his/her home and can continue their learning from anywhere. Now, there is only one step which has to be taken by educational institutes that is adopting the new technology of LMS.
