14 Myths About Online Education with EIT
The world has become inundated with various myths regarding online learning, mostly due to the infancy of the phenomenon. EIT has become a major proponent in rectifying the detrimental rumours that still plague many undecided prospective engineers.
Below is a collated list of the top online learning rumours debunked:
Online Learning is only for People with Good Computer Skills
False! This myth is a perpetual fear for many students that have studied with us.
All you need to study is a computer, and a working internet connection. While up-to-date technology may certainly benefit your online experience, no real importance is placed on the hardware itself. The concern of technology is also synonymous with computer literacy, as EIT simplifies all the steps necessary to acquire the relevant course content.
Online Learning can Bear the Same Effect as Traditional Classrooms
True! You can receive the same, or even better experience from online learning
This statement may have been true approximately a decade ago, but we've far surpassed any previous inadequacies. EIT's online class sizes are smaller, hence students can experience far more interactivity with lecturers and Learning Support Officers (LSO).
The software utilised, Electromeet, is cutting edge, and designed to accommodate devices of any size and shape.
Online Study is for People who Couldn't become Uni Students
False! Online learning can often be viewed as more effective and convenient than traditional college courses.
Undertaking a university degree is understood to be the standard for many countries now, hence online up-skilling is mistakenly viewed as less prestigious. This concept is ironically not true, as online training with EIT now provides the practical experience that many universities fail to deliver.
Online Credits Will not Transfer to Another College
False! Online credits can transfer depending on the accreditation and course relevancy.
This myth is incredibly dependent, but it does have some legitimate foundations. Many colleges and training centres may not accept unit credits from foreign organisations.
Despite this, the accreditation on the course.
