Online studies create opportunities for millions who otherwise wouldn’t have them. We know that education matters, as it opens paths to better jobs, better wages and a better life. Millions are missing out because they can’t afford to go to university. Millions of other, mature people miss out because they feel their time to study has passed with their youth. But the opportunity is there. In today’s technology-driven world, university-level education ventured outside traditional zones place. Remote education grew, diversified, and improved with the technology that brings it to your PC, laptop and even your pocket. Education is at your fingertips, no matter how old you are or what you do.
Technology Brings Education to You
We moved far from the early days of the modern internet. Now it surrounds us nearly everywhere on the planet and is flooding the parts it has not reached yet. Speed and stability increased to a level unimaginable only a quarter of a century ago. A decent modem then needed 82 minutes to download a 1 Gb file, presuming a stable phone line. Today, the average time for that on a 4G mobile network is 100 seconds. That is around 46 times faster. By the way, that data volume corresponds to the entire text of the Encyclopedia Brittanica, all 30-odd books.
Hardware developed as rapidly. With 300 Gb of storage, an average modern laptop holds 10,240 times more data than a 30 Mb hard disk, a staple in the mid-1990s. A mid-range phone or tablet takes on 32-64 GB of data. Computing power increased at a comparable rate in desktops, laptops and mobile devices.
As a result, today, we have much faster access to vastly more content than then. What does that mean for online studies? It allows educators to deliver far more material to a student’s screen. Remote studying isn’t as it was: it’s lively and animated, a virtual tour of incredible flexibility. The Online Business Academy study platform guides you through the lessons, assignments and tests. It also links additional material and puts up signposts to related fields of interest. The same as a teacher would do.
Technology Also Allows Vibrant, Affordable and Flexible Studies
But there’s more. If you’re among the millions who can’t afford to enroll in a brick-and-mortar school or even its remote classes, it’s affordable. And if you’re among the other millions, who have to work or simply feel they’re too old to study, it brings your education and, eventually, your qualifications and degrees to your home.
You can study at any time and in any place you find convenient. The diverse offer allows you to take a course from many learning platforms to improve your work or seek a promotion. Or you may opt for a qualification with us, in Business or IT & Computing. Each level corresponds to a completed year at a university. And each level is recognized by education institutions, should you decide to continue elsewhere, and by employers if you work.
Level 4 comes with one year of studies, Level 7 with four. That qualification is on par with a Master’s Degree. You can also transfer to one of the renowned UK universities through the top-up programs we offer. In that case, you obtain both the qualifications and Bachelor’s or Master’s degrees.
Online Studies: No Shortcut, Just a Different Path to a Degree
This brings us to the three-decades-old question that still comes up and possibly discourages many from grabbing the opportunity. Is online education a scam? No, it isn’t. Governments have worked hard with online education providers to make sure that an online degree guarantees the same knowledge as a classical diploma.
The Online Business Academy is a fully-certified study platform based on a British curriculum. To receive the certificates, it had to pass strict criteria, just as our students must master the curriculum for a qualification. There are no shortcuts, only different ways to obtain education and certify your skills.
You can – and should – verify our certificates. That will also verify the qualifications you will acquire on completion of your studies. If you wish to find out more about us, our programs, please ask us at email@example.com.
