Online education had existed before we were hit by the horrifying wave of the coronavirus pandemic, forcing many organizations, both professional and educational, to transition their communication and work proceedings via online means.
Now that we have experienced the impact of online learning, many of us have seen a positive change from these turns of events that had always existed when it came to online teaching.
Let us consider a prime example of the Andalus Institute which was founded by Mohammad Al Andalusi in February 2019 and is an establishment that provides online Arabic language courses. Mohammad Al Andalusi has studied Arabic for six years in Egypt at Merkex Al Isbaah and Al Azhar University – which is why he holds the status of being the main teacher at the Andalus Institute.
The institution is headquartered in Saudi Arabia, and students are enrolled online with all proficiencies of Arabic as long as they can benefit from the coursework. It is a 15-month program by which, in the end, the students will become fluent in reading, speaking, and writing classical Arabic. Moreover, since this is an online institution, it is not necessary for students to reside in Saudi Arabia to attend classes as long as they have a decent internet connection and a device to connect with it.
What makes Andalus Institute stand out from the rest of the online establishments is that they have taken immense measures to ensure that they can track each individual’s progress and help them through their struggles. Additionally, they also offer 24/7 access to teachers through video calls, e-mails, weekly livestreams, and community groups on social media.
Their quick success has helped Mohammad Al Andalusi figure out just how exactly students can benefit from the perks of attaining education through online classes.
Working From Anywhere
One of the best things you gain from online classes is that you can attend them anywhere – even outside the comforts of your house.
Since everything can be done online, you can easily submit your work online and access materials for classes, making it very convenient to do these things no matter where you are in the world.
Instant Lecture Reviews
It can be easy to let our minds wander during class. In fact, according to a study conducted by Jonathan Schooler – a psychologist at the University of California – he had found that students tend to lose focus around five times during a 45-minute study session.
There are many online programs that record their session, making it easier for students to come back to review the lecture online whenever they need to, another easy way for them to improve their understanding of academic concepts.
Saving Up on Expenses
Even though courses can be the same amount as a traditional course, there are other ways you can save up on money when attending online classes.
You will not have to pay for costs like transportation, living expenses, lab fees, etc., that would otherwise be charged if you had been attending a traditional course on campuses.
