Future of learning: 5 Advantages of taking online classes

As a nation, accepting life with COVID-19 has not been easy on anyone. Social distancing measures have made it difficult for people to carry on living life as normal. However, as they say, the show must go on! 

Now more than ever, people are using creative ways to bring back the fun in their lives and accept the new standard of living. 

The education sector has also evolved over the past few months. As millions of people are out of the classroom, there has been a rise in online learning environments, whereby tutors are using digital platforms to continue teaching. 

Research has also shown that online learning methods have shown an increase in retention of information, and are less time consuming than classroom sessions, therefore online training may be the future of learning. 

What is online training?

Online training, also known as e-learning or distance learning, is education or training sessions that take place over the internet. Over the years as our lives have gone busier, the technological advances meant that we can learn at our own pace when it comes to professional and personal development. 

Online learning has become an attractive option, especially in the current climate. Here are our top 5 advantages of virtual online learning. 

Easy Access

As long as you have access to the Internet, you can access the course materials using your computer, laptop, phone or tablet. Making it accessible from your home, workstation or wherever you are. 

At Kalu, we also offer support for setting up everything you need before you start the course, so don’t worry if you are not computer literate; our team will arrange a call with you to discuss how it all works from start to finish.


Gone are the days where you have to pay towards expensive hotel, food and travel costs to training centres. Online learning means that you can learn from the comfort of your own home. There are also group discounts available if you are an employer looking to educate your team. 

There is also no need to spend on physical copies of books as all the course content and resources are digitally available whenever required.


We often find that people learn at different levels and everyone has their own way of retaining information. This is why at Kalu, we offer customised learning courses that are delivered at the pace of the individual or group attending.

Online support

Learners have the opportunity to interact with their tutors and group members for support or questions either via email or chat. 

With the current climate, many of us have been confined in our homes, so having the opportunity to interact with others, without compromising on the social distancing measures, is quite uplifting and helps to bring back those positive vibes.

Engaging material

Interactive online courses will allow you to learn in many different ways, such as group sessions, fun group games, hands-on exercise, live Q&A sessions and much more. 

Virtual online training is the next best thing to face-to-face training but with many additional benefits. Sometimes working a 9-5 job and trying to fit in travel times to a training centre can be off-putting for many people. Which is what makes online training a perfect option to continue enhancing your personal and professional skills.
