The importance of offline education – A perspective

Mar 22, 2022 | General Opinion | 0 comments

Yesterday, I was discussing with one of my clients in the education sector about how people have changed their approach to acquiring new skills during and after the pandemic. With all colleges almost functioning online, many students went ahead and did the courses on online platforms like Udemy, Coursera, Youtube, etc, to learn new skills.

So, I asked if this trend continues, will the traditional education method like college and university become redundant?

The client answered this beautifully and I agreed with him too.

The syllabus of many courses provided by universities in India is not up-to-date. So, the students have to go beyond their university syllabus and learn those skills. But, there are certain other things like teamwork, interpersonal skills, communication skills, etc, that students get to learn while studying in colleges. Many colleges conduct various festivals and internship rounds. They also encourage students to conduct seminars on their favourite topics and they also organise industrial visits. These activities look simple but they help them boost their confidence that benefits them for a lifetime.

Universities may take some time to upgrade their syllabus. Even if the syllabus is up-to-date, students will still try to find ways to learn skills that are not provided by the colleges/universities. But, it is also important to learn those interpersonal skills to boost your confidence and succeed in your career. This learning process becomes natural by attending colleges/ universities.
