Education Sector in India

Education Sector in India

At present, the size of the education sector is pegged at $25 billion, says an Assocham study. With the increase in middle class income and Government expenditure the education sector may double to $50 billion by 2015. A few years ago, the domestic markets in India were just too small to enable the creation of a meaningfully sized company specially catering the need of the Education Industry. In recent times we have seen many end-user services offer opportunities in various markets to build global standard education companies. These markets include information on various courses and admission criteria, career counselling, Education Fairs, ratings for colleges, E.R.P and other technology support to colleges, schools and the Industry etc. The intersection of the mobile, Internet and social media (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter) explosion with the emergence of these end-user services has created many exciting new opportunities.

How to learn anything

How to learn anything

How to learn anything

Have you ever face a situation when you read a chapter when you tried to recall it you were not able to reproduce even a single point. The problem might be that the method of learning you are using is one of the least efficient ways of learning.

Everyone is different from each other. There is not a single way of learning which is helpful for everyone to learn anything. But we have to find the way which suits us and is very efficient for us to learn. May be it doesn’t suit to our friend but that single way can suit to us and we can learn anything very easily by that way of learning.

Recognize the suitable way-

According to the psychologists, some people find that dictating a topic to someone else is the best way of learning. They say that during their degree or schooling they used to dictate some topics to their friends who did not attend the lectures. And at the exams time they found that recall of those dictated topics much easier in comparison of those topics which were not dictated. They find it easy to recall those topics even after a long period.

One of my friends has always been topper of his class even he never gives much time to his study except the class lectures. He is such a brilliant guy. After asking the way he uses to be on top always, he told that he gives full attention to the teacher’s words and makes his own notes on the same time while receiving the lecture. After that he reads that notes at the exams time and that time he can recall the topics without any efforts because he made these notes by himself. So, making the notes is the easiest way of learning for him.

Different ways of learning-

There are many easy and different ways of learning which can be suitable person to person. Some of them are-

  • Dictate the topic– Although receiving the lecture is least effective way of learning, dictating the topic or giving the lecture is one of the most effective way of learning what you are being told. You can dictate your topics to your friends who were not present there at the time of lecture or you can stand in front of the mirror and can deliver a lecture to yourself.
  • Make your notes– When you attend the class just give attention to the lectures and try to make the notes yourself. When you write on a topic that matter automatically enters in your long term memory which latter helps you to recall it without any effort.
  • Revise the topic– After receiving the lecture try to revise the lecture or what you heard from the lecture. The psychologists believe that revising anything forward it from short term memory to long term memory. If it’s possible try to revise the entire stuff, which you learned in the week days, on the weekend. Revising the matter weekly makes its learning strong and you will never forget it.
  • Write Articles– If you have any blog or a website try to spend some time on writing an article on the topic which learn in the day. By writing the article you will prepare your notes as well as you will be able to provide the stuff to your blogs or website. At the same time if ever you need to revise the topic you just need to click on your blog or website and can easily revise it.
  • Discuss the topic– Making a discussion on the topic with your social circle is one of the easiest ways that you have available for learning anything. Wherever you get a chance, bring a topic you would like to discuss and share your wealth of knowledge as well as listen the experience of the others on that topic. The more you can discuss a topic the better your ability will be to learn it and to recall it in the future. Moreover, there are many ways you can discuss any topic like: forum, twitter, or any social networks.
  • Relate the topic– Whenever you try to learn anything; try to relate it with something you are familiar with. You can relate it with any story or any funny experience of your life. The psychologists have proven that a thing which has been learnt by relating with any situation of one’s own life lasts long than the thing learnt by simple way.
  • Imagine yourself in the situation– To learn a thing, try to create a situation related to the topic and imagine yourself in that situation. Imagine your friends or other family members in place of other characters of your situation. This will give you a personal interest in the topic. And one can learn the personal experiences more easily and can recall it at any time in his/her whole life.

As most of the things in life, this is not applied to every single person at every single time. As stated above, some have high rate of success by dictating a topic or some can learn better by making their own notes while for some it may not work as successfully. But by working on these find out which deemed to be the efficient way of learning and try the one which works best for you. If you find the best for you, you can learn anything very easily by applying it.

So, when you are going to start working on these to find the best way of learning for you?

E-Learning for Training

E-Learning for TrainingE-Learning plays an important role in training. Learning knows no boundaries. A man has to learn at every step of his life. Learning is expected for a new job as well as for a job which we have done for a long time or which we are doing. Every job requires some special skills; maybe it’s a job of a driver or a job of a technician. Similar job in different places has different job profile with different working conditions. Here one has to do different duties and have to adopt different work culture and conditions. So the need of learning arouses. There is a great revolution in technology. Every day a new technology is emerging. If an industry wants to sustain in the market it has to adopt these new technologies. If a company adopts something new, all of its employees need to be educated about these new technologies. Here ones again the need of learning arouses. There are many situations where some changes occur in existing working process. These changes need some knowledge to do the work properly. This generates the condition for learning. For these conditions companies give training to the employees. Companies need to give training in three conditions

  • When it hires a new employee.
  • When it adopts a new technology.
  • When there is any change in the existing working process.

These training programs cost very high to the companies. Apart from the money they consumes much time of the employees which interrupts the daily schedule of the employees. There are cases when as the training completes and employee has to leave his/her job and then need for training arouse again.
To be safe from all these situations, companies are now moving towards E-Learning where companies have no need to hire a trainer again and again for the same job. They have no need to schedule training period for each employee. Nobody’s work gets affected due to the training.
E-Learning is an emerging term in the field of education. This is internet based learning. It comprises all forms of electronically supported learning and teaching. E-Learning has spread its wing in almost all the sectors and for the training purposes many companies has adopted it.
There are many benefits of providing training through E-Learning-

  • Save time.
  • Less expensive.
  • Any time availability of trainers.
  • Virtual training
  • Employee can join program according to the availability of time.
  • Employee can recall it even after the training period.
  • Employee’s work schedule doesn’t get affected.

Save Time

Administration has to set a schedule for the training by its traditional way. Administrator has to spend his/her precious time for this schedule planning. Trainees have to spare some time for training. In other words, traditional way of training consumes much more time of administrator as well as of employees. As there is no need of scheduling if we adopt e-learning programs and employees have no need to spare the time for training, it save the time.

Less expensive
Manual training cost very high. Company has to pay to trainers and some time they need some assistant. So company pays accordingly and it needs to pay this amount for every time when the training occurs. E-learning is the best solution of this.  As one can upload training program in any form like videos, audio, pictures, notes, presentation, etc. E-learning removes the need of trainer. Trainees can learn from the uploaded material without any trainer. By this way company save its hard-earned money.

Any time availability of trainers
Company has to run its training program according to the time schedule of the trainers. As e-learning makes trainer dispensable, company can run the training program according to its own.

Virtual Training
If a company has many branches at different places they have to schedule same training program for each branch and has to pay for each. E-learning covers this drawback and provides a place where company can upload its training program which can be access by any employee of any branch who has the login/password. Thus same training program can take place at any part of the world.

Employee can join program according to the availability of time
Traditional training goes on according to the scheduled timings and trainee has to spare that time for training but e-learning overcomes this problem and gives the freedom to the trainee to join the training program according to the availability of time. When s/he gets free time or completer their work they can join the program.

Employee can recall it even after the training period
In the traditional way of training, after completion of the training session there is no way to recall the practice. E-Learning gives any time availability to the employee so when s/he needs to recall any section of the training s/he can go for it.

Employee’s work schedule doesn’t get affected
As we know for the training via traditional way trainee has to left his/her daily work, this shuffles the work schedule of the trainee.  As the work of an employee connects to the work of other employee, delay in the work of trainee affects the chain of production. But if training is provided by e-learning, trainee has no need to compromise his/her work because there is no schedule for the training and trainee can learn when s/he wants.
These are the reasons why companies are turning towards E-Learning instead of the manual training and show the importance of E-Learning.
