EDUCATION FOR ALL

Teacher educating in multiple disciplinesLearning away from the classroom isn’t a new concept. Way back in the 1800s, people were taking courses by correspondence. In the 1920’s you could even do it by radio. There’s a long-standing tradition to self-motivated learning, but the question is: how do you stay motivated?

 

You may have heard of a recent trend in learning called MOOCs, that is Massive Open Online Courses. It’s basically a free university quality course from a reputable institution. It offers an alternative online learning environment, and people are signing up every day. However, the drop out rate is over 80%, meaning a mere fraction of people are able to keep themselves interested enough to finish the course, and many don’t make it past day one. The will is there, but the fever isn’t catching.

 

The trouble, of course, is the feeling of facelessness. There is a lack of humanity to the whole process, and often the confusing technology and clumsy websites can create a barrier. You almost need a whole course in ‘how to learn online’ before you begin. People need a friendly face, a feeling of interaction within their online classes. Online video tutorials are an engaging and entertaining way to keep people engrossed. We have a hand-picked team working to create high standards in our videos, and it’s the next best thing to being face to face with our experts.

 

There’s no need to be tripping over confusing websites, emails, and bulletin board posts; anyone who has explored the current online education systems before will be familiar with all this. We hope to provide the world with a name synonymous with quality training, easy and accessible for all walks of life.

 

The other face of online education is the “quick fix”. So many amateur contributors around the world are putting up their homemade videos online. This is great as a stopgap, but all too often the sources aren’t reputable. Sure it fills up time, and it feels like you are learning, but usually it is shallow and incomplete, and the video quality can leave you squinting and frustrated. It’s best to get online video tutorials from experts in their field, behind and in front of the camera. Learning Fever strives for the highest standards, we wanted people to get the most out of their precious time online, to have one central point to come to for quality in their learning, a comprehensive library of information.

 

The learning epidemic is incurable, no doubt you’ve already had some of the symptoms. Don’t let the symptoms go untreated. If you want to catch that bug and keep it, then you have come to the right place. Welcome to Learning Fever.
