Globalizing Online Courses Witness Pressure on Universities

Online Courses Witness Pressure on Universities


As it is universally believed, education is certainly an investment into one's life.

Globalization continues to have an effect bringing immense pressure on universities worldwide, when most are not really prepared to work on them.

These questions still remain to top the chart on the universal education front:
What are the efforts taken by universities to educate growing numbers of people worldwide needing a university education? How effective and how fast can this need be achieved?

As per a recent study, there are ongoing strategies to combine traditional and online practices such as Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs), in order to further facilitate learners to earn knowledge more skewed towards their convenience and learning abilities. MOOC has been observed as a channel to expand the feasibility of digital education to suit the requirement of multiple groups of learners from varied backgrounds and talents.

Coursera, being one of the prime leaders of rapidly growing online education industry, witnesses hundreds and thousands of learners who are willing and ready to immerse themselves into an era of 'being educated and to educate others', with multiple convenient online learning systems.

These digital platforms everywhere provide thousands of online courses specifically structured to meet the needs of learners in their respective places. And quite advantageously, these credits are gradually getting recognised and accepted by the employers and community. Contrary to the traditional belief on online learning certificates, it has been substantially proven over the recent times that there are online course certificates today which the employers acknowledge to use, tagging a value to online learning.

With continued support by the higher authorities, expansion of digital learning programmes can gradually take place or penetrate into a larger diverse populous countries. Wider adoption and faster acceptance of online education leads developing countries to better international connections and resourceful digital networks.
