Caught in a dilemma, whether online learning is beneficial or not? Stuck between the idea of choosing online training over one-on-one interaction? Tired of seeing yourself wandering behind the thoughts of wasting holidays by just overthinking about this? No worries! Let us give you a deep insight into all this.

Virtual training is a feature in the modern education system through which the students are taught by the mentors/ teachers by connecting virtually, via video calls or voice calls. It calls for training the students in their particular field through the medium of the internet. Currently, colleges, schools, and even internships are being held virtually. Many people are working from home. Various webinars, events are being held virtually. Where the speaker/mentor arranges a meeting and all the audience joins via invites.

Now, it has been inferred that education is continuing through online mode. Many of us would wonder if it is better than the previous education system or not, where the teacher was present in front of us and it was much easier to communicate. Or this mode is better where we can save our money by not traveling, by not buying uniforms etc. A lot of questions arise about which form of education is recommended. I would like to clear this by talking about its challenges and solutions.



  1. Connection issue: The first and foremost obstacle we face is this. Many times while connecting over calls, we face internet issues. Signals come and all of a sudden disappear. Many important tasks get missed. Recently, many universities are conducting online exams. What if while giving exams, someone faces a connectivity issues and all the answers vanish. These are some problems that occur no matter what.
  2. Determination reduces: It has also been witnessed that amidst the classroom with peers and friends, the competitive zeal is high and remains the same. The enthusiasm to learn, ask, doubt, and question flourishes. But the online training trend when examined examines a downfall in this context. Students are seen to be demotivated as if they are doing self-learning with no one around to have a competition with.

Lack in analysing gestures: In the classroom mode of education, the gestures and the clues of both the teacher and the student are seen. As if, the student has got what the teacher is conveying or the teacher analyses if the student is listening or not. The gestures and posture state that all. But in online and virtual training methods this has reduced somehow. There is no effective communication between the listener and the receiver and hence the content gets lost.
