Over the last few years, there has been a shift in the educational landscape. Remote learning became the new normal throughout the pandemic, with a lot of courses moving online in the interest of safety.

As online learning became a new normal, it demonstrated that there are many benefits for students who are no longer confined to learning in a classroom or having to work at a particular pace. Remote learning offers students more power and control over their education which allows them to concentrate on other responsibilities outside of their qualifications.

Below, the experts at subscription-based learning platform StaySharp have compiled a list of benefits remote learning can offer and how it puts learners in great stead for their future: 

Greater flexibility

Remote learning allows students greater freedom and control over their learning environment providing access to learning materials at any time from any location. Not being tied down to one specific location or needing to commute allows for greater flexibility and a better work-life balance.

Having a healthy work-life balance is crucial for some students who need to balance education with other commitments such as employment or family responsibilities without their education needing to suffer.

Saves time and money

Being able to learn remotely eliminates the need for students to commute to in-person classes. This helps to save money on petrol or public transport which is especially beneficial during the rising cost of living. 

This also allows for greater freedom to spend more time on responsibilities outside of education such as family commitments or employment.

Gain important life skills

Remote learning helps build vital life skills such as self-discipline, time management, multitasking, working autonomously, and working independently which are crucial skills for various aspects of life. 

More control over learning style

Online learning environments can be more accommodating to particular learning styles and personality needs. Most students have a preferred learning style which can either be visual, auditory, kinesthetic, reading/writing, or a combination of them all. 

Remote learning offers students more control to build their ideal learning environment that focuses on their individual learning styles and needs to make sure they are getting the most out of their learning experience.

Demonstrates self-motivation

Completing a qualification or course remotely requires dedication and commitment, so succeeding in earning a qualification from an online course or degree demonstrates that the student is self-motivated and can practice independent working and time management.  These are some of the most important skills that employers look for.
