In this day and age, the needs of modern-day graduates entering the workforce are shifting paradigms of learning methodologies. With advancements in cloud technology, self-paced learning has become popular and well adopted.
In this system, learners have full control over what, when and how they want to engage with the course curriculum.
The instructor selects learning objectives and sets requirements for the learner to follow. Combined with achievable and realistic goals, this type of learning system can be deeply satisfying. Self-paced learning materials and tools are all provided with lifetime access as soon as you enrol in any of our Certified Courses. Furthermore, it is important for the Learner to have a Globally Recognized Certification which catalyzes an upward career growth trajectory.
Some of the advantages of self-paced learning are:
1. Suits all types of learning styles
We all know different learners have different learning styles and needs. While some may grasp a concept at one go, others may take multiple content reading sessions. When learning and comprehension times vary, quick learners may have to wait for the others to pick up pace and catch-up. Self-paced learning is made for all types of learners enabling each learner to learn at their own pace.
2. Helps in building a strong foundation
Self-paced learning, much like a classroom session has assignments and tests at the end of each module.
The tests give the learners an assessment of the subject matter. If any knowledge gap exists, learners are encouraged to review the content again to get a better understanding of the content.
We must remember this type of learning is not available in classroom sessions. Sometimes in classroom sessions, when learners are introverts, they shy away from raising hands and clarifying doubts. However, with the advantage of self-paced learning, the learners can ask questions using mediums like online chat, messaging or email.
3. Enhances Ownership
Ownership is a key characteristic in both personal and career growth. Self-paced learning, by its inherent nature, demands ownership to finish all the sessions and courses to be certified within a set deadline. It puts the onus of learning on the learner to be self-motivated as well as time organized.
4. Better Focus
In any classroom environment, there are chances of students getting distracted. In real classrooms mostly the distractions are either caused by peers or by faulty classroom equipment.
With the advantage of self-paced learning, one can choose timings and learn with minimal or no distractions which lead to effective learning.
5. No scheduling problems
With courses involving a large number of people, scheduling becomes a challenge for any learning program. Scheduling issues like cancelling and rescheduling are completely mitigated, one of the advantages of self-paced learning. The learner has to adhere to completion before deadlines of course completion.
In conclusion, self-paced learning has many benefits and advantages. Statistics show about 70% of participants confirmed that career-focused, job-related training and development opportunities influenced their decision into choosing self-paced learning while having a job.
