Teachers in an Instant!

One of the greatest tools of the Internet is the opportunity it provides for people to learn about anything they are curious about.  As long as a user has the patience to search through the “facts,” the material available is endless.

While the Internet is filled with infinite information, when it comes to online education, there is a lack of personal interaction online.  However, personal interactions can make all the difference in how well a person learns. Before the advent of the Internet, people who wanted the best education had to go out of their way to find it and, generally, pay a lot for it. So if the student couldn’t afford the trip, he or she would lose out on a great experience. Thanks to Web-based video conferencing, all this is changing.

Video conferencing is revolutionizing the world of education. Knowledge is power, and with this tool anyone, anywhere can access it. In this economy more people are choosing the workforce over higher learning simply because college is not affordable.  As is well known, those with higher educational degrees earn more than those who are less educated. So a lot of young adults out there are put between a rock and a hard place — work or school?

Thanks to video conferencing, the cost of learning is decreasing quickly and allowing more access to what was never previously available.  With video conferencing, teachers literally go to students, wherever they are. No need to pay for the trip out, the room and board, or even the expensive parking permits just to be on school grounds!

Typical online classes operate with students signing up and then trying to learn from the books that the teacher assigns. If they have a question, it can take several days for them to get an answer back. These slow exchanges cause a dramatic decrease in learning speed and comprehension. By simply getting together in a video conference, these problems are eliminated because responses are immediate. This type of personal attention nurtures the learning process.

Video conferencing is cost efficient, practical, and very easy to set up. The education market is just one of many markets where video conferencing can add value to both people and businesses.
