The truth is, the Internet has a huge number of options for anyone who wants to learn about the online education option. There are various companies who are trying to create an impression by advertising that they provide online schools, but the truth is, there are no such things.
To use the expression ‘new online school’ suggests that a brand new, very unprofessional, old school is offering something that is not a standard part of the education that people in India need and which could even be offensive. If you see, a brand new school is a new school and therefore not a part of the existing education system and so is not compliant with some laws and regulations.
Most of the companies making claims of being the first ‘New Online School’ provide some sort of electronic education where students can do various tasks through the Internet, including some that you may not find right in your community. In some cases, the schools claim that they are offering online learning, but the reality is that they are using proprietary computer programs. This does not mean that you cannot take classes online, but what it really means is that a school is just an affiliate of another company’s education technology platform, with a degree of specialization for marketing the business instead of providing value to students.
However, I will remind you that there are many people who provide the ‘Certified Online Masters Degree’ as a promotional term for online education and pay a fee, to enable you to learn on a professional platform. You can even find out from them if they have a recognized college or university that is accredited, by checking the schools that have accreditation by the association and also the reputation of the said institution. The accreditation of colleges or universities is often subject to public scrutiny, and in some states, it may even require the sanction of the government.
It is important to understand that not all online courses are secure. Since so many people have access to the Internet these days, it would be foolish of you to believe that the online environment is risk-free. You must therefore choose a school that you trust, that has a recognized provider, and that is a recognized institution.
Some online courses are being offered by individuals who offer their own products or services to consumers, like for example, a website for online education, where you can download modules and complete courses for a certain fee. It is very important to choose such a product only after checking out the information of the people and other companies who produce the product, since you cannot assume that the quality of the course is the same as what you get at a normal college or university.
It would be great if you could stay in Gurgaon, the financial capital of India, but remember that this is not possible. However, you could always go to a place like Delhi where the roads are dirtier, the air is thick and the people are polite, so that you will still have a comfortable and safe living space. That will make you happy, isn’t it?
