Use Of Web 20 In Learning

Education today is not limited to schools and universities. Working professionals are taking learning and training sessions to boost their careers. The Google generation is used to being connected to networking and information sources, all the time, in multiple forms. Students no longer need physical classrooms, they need education on-the go. Everywhere now, you will encounter people taking virtual learning lessons and collaborating with teachers and students, unlike some years ago.

Why this change? And How?

The answer is Web 2.0. It is not an upgrade to the World Wide Web but a more collaborative approach where user-generated content is encouraged and users are connected over social media.

E-learning/online classrooms /virtual classrooms are trending because of Web 2.0. Be it a social networking site like Facebook or Instagram or surfing the video streaming app- YouTube, today’s generation is exchanging ideas and collaborating in communities to make learning interactive. This has given birth to many video production companies and content creators in India.

Here’s more about Web 2.0 in learning:

Web 2.0 focuses on user-generated content, data and socializing. All the social networking sites, web-based communities, video sharing platforms, wiki, vlogs, blogs, and hosted services we use today are a result of the evolution of Web 2.0.

The education industry has been transformed because of Web 2.0 and the top by-product is virtual classroom webinar solutions. This is an extension of the classroom teaching where teachers and students meet each other online and learn about a given subject by exchanging ideas and getting the best from the subject matter experts. Here’s how Web 2.0 is revolutionizing education:

1. Classroom Management Tool:

It is an app-based model where each student is assigned an ID, password to track assignments, deadlines, and also submit their projects. Besides, this tool sends regular reminders to students for events, submissions, etc. keeping them connected.

2. Exam Creation Tool:

This tool lets teachers monitor the performance of their students. Teachers can create online tests and quiz to test their students, allowing them to self-analyze.

3. E-Authoring Tool:

Video marketing, graphic designing and video streaming are on a boom since teachers have started recording their sessions and uploading online for students to access anytime and anywhere.

Web 2.0 is a blessing for learners of all ages and now there is much more flexibility and accuracy in learning. Teachers and students can share content for presentations and what not from a single click!
