How Can You Develop Your e-Learning Skills and knowledge?
Often heard that eLearning skills and knowledge are hard to keep developing but if you are conscious and follow some certain rules you will be able to keep yourself active and keep up with cutting edge technology. It is not only students face this trouble rather most of the teachers on eLearning platforms are also struggling. I am going to share some ideas about how can you develop your skills and knowledge as an EdTech teacher and student.
Engagement outside Virtual Classroom
Well, this is a very common trait that learners and teachers both are highly engaged in virtual classrooms. They learn things and tech ineffective way yet those knowledge remains as it is. Due to non-engagement or practical use, knowledge or skills learned through e-education platforms remain undeveloped. Therefore, if you really want to keep your knowledge and skills active, you must engage outside the e-platform. Join any group or community where you can share this knowledge and you get something in return. This is the most effective way to build connections outside the classroom and develop your skills and knowledge. There are thousands of groups on social media related to your skills and learned knowledge. On the other hand, you will also find out many e-learning summit and gatherings online, and you can join them for your betterment. Because a lot of learners are following this method to improve their learned things, you should also, rest assured that your learning will be developed with skills.
Enroll into Other E-learning Related Courses
Remember one thing, you must enroll with other related courses so that your knowledge gets improved. If you are a teacher on the e-learning platform and If you want to improve your eLearning experience and want to get into its core, you get to enroll yourself. On the other hand, students can join another course if they really want to push their learning practice. Every course has a related course that talks about a lot of other aspects of particular knowledge. Besides, if you get into another course related to your previous course, you will get a lot of things new and you will be able to connect from your previous knowledge and skills. This is the way you can become an expert in the course you enroll in.
Plan to Use Technology More and More
You are the person who is using EdTech to teach students and your students are developing their certain skills. For example, if you do not know much about the latest technology that is being used in EdTech, your teaching method will not be developed. Therefore, as a teacher, you must be aware of the technology being used to revolutionize this e-learning facility. On the other hand, if you have enough knowledge about the latest technology, it will be easier for you to understand the entire technological mechanism. It is not only important for the teachers but also for students. If you are a student and learning something about technology, it is certain that you will be learning a certain technology in the virtual classroom but you also get to learn about the latest technology coming in the market. As much as engagement you have with technology, the thing you have learned from the eLearning platform will become easier and this is the best way to improve your knowledge.
Join Online Discussion
It is not that you will only attend the online classes and forget about other things. Online classes are limited and you may have no option to ask a question during the class. So sometimes your understanding remains in question. To develop your eLearning instinct, joining in online discussion is the best because a lot of e-learners join these discussions and they also discuss what they have learned. If you have any problem regarding the course and if you have any questions, you may ask a group of people on the discussion. On top of the learned facts, you will also get something new from many people and you can also share something that is not known by others. Joining the discussion is also important for teachers and this way they can understand students and develop their own skills and knowledge.
Join Webinars and Live Events
Live events are the real game-changer in the eLearning world. It remains one of the most important parts of the online learning process. So, if you are an e-Learner or an eLearning teacher, you must join webinars to improve your own skills. Webinars are very useful due to their live online nature where you may ask a question and receive answers. On the other hand, students can get a good interactive classroom facility remotely. For teachers, you have a better opportunity to improve your skills and develop your teaching ability by seeing these live events.
In short, only joining a course is not enough to master that course rather you also have to have activities outside of the course classes. Teachers and students need to develop their skills based on their topic and if there is any desire for developing knowledge and skills, you must join other activities including engaging in outside virtual classrooms, joining online discussion, or live webinars. These are some of the ways you can keep up with your eLearning activities. This engagement will definitely improve your knowledge and skills.
