Unlock Your Potential With Online Education At Nexford University In Kenya

Unlock Your Potential With Online Education At Nexford University In Kenya

Over the last couple of years, the concept of traditional higher education has changed dramatically. Being physically present in a classroom isn’t the only learning option anymore — not with the rise of the internet and new technologies.

 

Today, anyone can easily access a quality education whenever and wherever they want - provided they can get online. 

While there does exist scepticism surrounding education through the internet, massive progress has been made to discount that.

The notion of leaving behind a classroom may sound absurd to many, especially Generation X, but, over time, strides have been made that have seen students perform exceptionally well and online teaching become a huge success.

In 2020, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, most educational institutions transitioned to online learning. Although this transition flew in the face of in-person learning, it also brought to light the advantages of online learning for students.

One of the main benefits of online learning is flexibility. It allows people to easily manage multiple commitments at once–such as work and family life. When it comes to work, learners don’t have to put their careers on hold to earn a world-class education.

This basically means that individuals can work at their own pace, allowing them to manage their obligations suitably while also optimizing the retention of the information being taught.

A top American University noted, “You can work through the lesson plan at your own pace to ensure you’re mastering the material before moving on to the next section. This added flexibility allows online learners to move through the course work at their speed and get the most out of the degree program.”

Another advantage of online learning is time management and honing such skills. With the flexibility offered by online classes, students can create their schedules. It is up to the individual to stay on track with assignments and deadlines and learn how to manage the demands of said classes.

Online courses also allow students to plan and work ahead, which can be particularly beneficial for those who are also managing the demands of their career, such as travel. In the instance of travel, they can work ahead to complete the necessary work, or bring their electronic device with them to keep up with their assignments.

Last, but not least, there is affordability. Unlike in-person education methods, online education tends to be more affordable. There’s also often a wide range of payment options that let you pay in instalments, which allows for better budget management.

Many Kenyans have been moving towards online learning as a way of maximizing their time, saving money, meeting their responsibilities, and managing their lives better.

Kenya is one of Africa’s leading technological hubs, where the mobile internet penetration rate stands at 83% (and rapidly growing) in comparison to 23% for the rest of sub-Saharan Africa, according to data from GSMA, the industry lobby for mobile network operators globally.

A 2020 article in Business Daily noted that Kenya has managed to stay ahead of the curve by laying the groundwork for e-learning through investments in ICT infrastructure, digital literacy, digital content and upskilling of teachers and trainers.

One of the main universities Kenyans are taking a greater interest in is Nexford University, a leading global stalwart in e-learning.
