Making the most of online services does not mean being lazy or laid back. With technology bringing almost everything to the tip of our finger, we are able to manage our work & leisure at the same time. Development of technology also means that the education industry has made its own advancements too. Students learn their syllabus on tablets, exam results & monthly reports are being circulated online and blackboards have been replaced with either smart boards or projector boards in schools.

Similarly, multiple advancements have happened in teaching techniques. Renowned universities across India and abroad offer professional courses which help Teachers enhance their skills as per the current requirements in the education system. These courses not only focus on your skill set but also keeps you updated about the changes in the education industry, such as teaching formats, grade-wise student mindset, etc. There's a higher scope for teachers to grow in their career with such certifications.

Let's take a brief look at the advantages of pursuing an online course:



COST EFFICIENT

Most Teachers and Educators do not have the time and mind space to attend a regular classroom program no matter how much they want to. In this case, an online course acts as a ray of hope. A regular college program typically comprises of a total fee that includes your basic tuition fee, specialization fee, transportation, stationery, and so on. Whereas an online course cuts down on all the extra's and just charges you for the course you've picked.



FLEXIBLE TIMING:

As Teachers and Educators, you are heavily occupied during the day. It is next to impossible to invest the time in a regular college program. Here's when pursuing an online course is beneficial. Unlike the regular college courses, an online course offers you the liberty to pick a time slot as per your convenience.


ZERO DISTRACTIONS

Isn't it challenging to have 100% focus in a classroom setup? Like in a regular college program that offers a 40 mins period where only 25 mins go into actual learning and the rest in either housekeeping activities and interruptions. Whereas, an online course subtracts the stress & distraction of classroom training. It offers a focused learning environment which helps you gain knowledge undisturbed.



LEARN AND RE-LEARN

A regular college program is time-bound, one class not attended is one chapter missed. But, online courses give you the liberty to pause, rewind and repeat the chapter if you missed or were not able to understand anything. There is no compromise on your learning in an online course!



LEARNING OPPORTUNITY

You've worked hard in your career to reach where you are today. Is that enough growth? If you have the zeal to move forward and reach higher, look for opportunities around. In this ever-evolving world, there are so many advancements in the education industry. Have you upgraded your skill-set? An online course not only gives you an insight into the day to day updates about the education system but also adds value to your career graph with its certification. The best part about an online course is that it's never too late to apply.

Summer In College Is For More Than Just Working

No, you're never to hold to have fun in the summer.

There should never be an age where you stop having fun in the summer. The weather is nice, there are always things to do, and everyone is just naturally happier. So, regardless of whether you're 7 or 21, I'm talking to you.

During the year it can be hard to find a routine unless you are a very put together person. Sadly, I am not. Even when I tell myself I'm going to eat healthily, work out, and stop procrastinating, I usually don't follow through with that. At school, I find myself in somewhat of a constant catch-up mode. When I feel like I'm ahead on my homework or studying, that usually means I'm behind on being healthy in other aspects of my life. That is why I love summer. It's a chance to reset the clock for a second and catch your breath.

I get that having an internship or working is important for your post-graduation life, but having fun is important for your college years too. When you get a job in the real world, summer is going to look a lot different for you. That is why it's best to take advantage of the time now. This doesn't mean turning down that work experience, it means doing things other than just working.

First things first is finding a hobby you enjoy that you don't do at school. Pick it up for a little over the summer. Why not? For me, this is yoga. For whatever reason, I find myself too nervous to attend yoga classes at school. I have absolutely no reason to be anxious about doing something I like, but I am so I take the time to attend a few classes a week in the summer.

Secondly, try reading. Before you make that look of disgust on your face, think about the last time you read a book of your choosing. If it was recently, then kudos to you for managing your time well enough to do that. If you are not that person, then hello! I am talking to you. I am not a fan of reading because I usually associate it with homework. However, I find that when I have the time to browse the book section of a store for a few seconds, I find multiple books that jump out at me. During the summer I take the opportunity to read a little here and there. The nice part of leisure reading over school reading is that there's no deadline. You can read what you want when you want to.

Finally, learn something new. Again I usually associate learning with things that I am required to learn for my major. Learning something new that interests you is a different kind of rush. When I'm bored in class, I make bucket lists of little things I want to learn about. They can be big or small. One time I wanted to learn how to knit. Don't ask me why my 19-year-old self thought it would be sweet to sit on my porch in the summer knitting, but I did, and I'm kind of sad I didn't pursue that interest. When might I ever have time to learn how to knit again?

These might sound like quirky things to do, but you're young. Make a bucket list and try to cross one thing off each weekend. If you're like me, then you're a little scared of growing up. Scared you won't be able to accomplish all the things you want to. But, the fact of the matter is no one is going to make you accomplish them but you. So, take some initiative and do them. Summer is for more than just working; it's time to live a little and reset the clock.
