ACS Online Training | Over 750 courses available to study online now!
Anderson recently wrote in the Spectator, that online learning was an oxymoron and the COVID-19 pandemic was used as a “pretext to further digitise education.”
Online and distance learning have long been considered the Cinderella of the education industry, but the massive growth in online education in recent years suggests that it is anything but.
Some parents and children did struggle with online education during the COVID-19 pandemic, but this ignores the positive experiences many families do experience after choosing to home educate their children -
Online education also benefits many adults. It is estimated that 100 million adults are studying worldwide. Many adults are no longer able to attend traditional TAFE/college/university based learning.
The COVID-19 pandemic did bring with it a raft of new online courses. Some good, some not so good. There are bad online courses, the same as there are bad classroom based courses. But articles like Anderson’s ignore the high quality distance and online learning providers who have been around for decades. The ones who offer high quality courses that benefit students who want to learn.
