Although online education has its limitations, there are several advantages of online learning that explain why eLearning may be the greatest revolution in today’s education. Here are 6 of them.
1. You can learn whatever you want!
Online learning provides teachers a diversity of learning experiences from alternate organisations. The Professional Teachers’ Council and affiliated teachers associations must be able teachers this choice with first class workshop designed by teachers for teachers.

3. Online courses are a great way to tap into expertise to grow and develop as a teacher
Online courses matched to National Professional Standards for Teachers are a great way to manage your NESA hours and to support you with targeted courses according your needs and those of your school and system.

When you start browsing through interesting online courses and programs, you’ll notice the Self-Paced label on most of them. What does this mean? Self-paced learning means that the students can start completing the targets at any time, and they can arrange a learning schedule that meets their individual needs.
5. Lower costs.
The fact that online programs are cheaper when compared to the ones held in a traditional campus setting is enough to convince you to consider them. Secondly, none of the teacher employers have the budget to support the daytime relief of all teachers, 10 hours per year to to attend courses in school time to complete their NESA requirements.
6. Interaction, reflection, tracking and automated certification.
Online courses track student progress throughout the course. During the course, students may have to view a video, make a comment or submit a file. They may be required to comment on other’s submissions. Courses can be set up by administrators to track and feedback to participants on progress through a course. When complete, the course will automatically send the participant a completion certificate. The tracking of participants is proof of undertaking and completion that is required by NESA to receive your accredited hours.
