The future of education is going to be both online and offline. The reason for this is that each mode of learning has its own advantages and disadvantages.

Online and offline learning

Online learning

Pros

Online learning is becoming more and more popular because 

  1. It is convenient and flexible. 
  2. You can learn at your own pace and you don't have to waste time travelling to and from school. 
  3. You can also access a variety of resources online, such as videos, tutorials, worksheets, activities, assignments and forums. 

Cons

However, online learning can be 

  1. Isolating.
  2. Doesn't give you the writing experience which is very important for children, especially at young age.
  3. Difficult to ask for help if you don't understand something.
  4. Increase in screen time

Offline learning

Pros

Offline learning is more traditional, but it has many advantages. 

  1. For example, you can get face-to-face interaction with your teachers and classmates, which can be helpful for learning. 
  2. Offline learning can also be more social, which can be beneficial for students who need to interact with others. 

Cons

However, offline learning can be 

  1. Expensive.
  2. Difficult to find a good school.

There is no doubt that online learning is on the rise. However, this does not mean that offline learning is going away. In fact, online learning often complements offline learning really well, and together as a package, the omni-channel model is going to steer and be here for a long period of time.

There are a few reasons why online learning and offline learning work so well together. 

  1. First, online learning can often be used to supplement or reinforce what is learned in the classroom. For example, if there is a lecture in class, students can watch the lecture online later to get a more in-depth understanding. 
  2. Additionally, online learning can be used to provide extra practice opportunities for students. For example, if students are working on a math problem in class, they can go online to find more practice problems to help them learn the material.
  3. Another reason why online learning and offline learning work so well together is that they can both serve different purposes. For example, online learning can be used for more personal and independent learning, while offline learning can be used for more social and interactive learning. This is important because it means that students can use online learning to get more out of their education, while also using offline learning to build relationships and learn from their peers.

As a result, the omni-channel model is going to be an important part of education for a long time to come by.
