Home » Why is the future of online tutoring so bright?
We sometimes wonder what the future of online tutoring is!
Is it really bright, or is it just a bubble and will burst eventually? Will the face-to-face or classroom-type of teaching replace it? Or is it online education that will shut the door for conventional face-to-face tutoring and classroom teaching?
Online tutoring has a very bright future.
It’s like outsourcing education. There is no need to get tied to a specific geographical region for your education. You can explore all the tutors who can teach online. So you get more options. You can learn at your own pace and at your own time.
Traditional education vs Online education
One of the main reasons traditional schools and colleges still exist is that they have the license to sell degrees. In the olden days, they had a monopoly on education. They had access to extensive libraries and significant infrastructure needed for teaching. But, now you can learn everything on the internet. 99% of the people will agree that they can find better youtube lectures free of cost than their school or college professor and teacher. So as long as learning is concerned online education is already ahead.
The world is changing very fast, and the old education system were taking a degree was enough to get a job and settle in life won’t be sufficient. People will need to upgrade their knowledge all the time. So the certificate and degree-based education system will lose its monopoly. Online learning will become the primary form of education. We are not talking about a hypothetical situation after 50 years, but it will come much sooner. In the next 10-20 years maximum, if not sooner than this.
The cost of education is rising very fast and online tutoring/ learning is the way to go to control these costs. Also, it can include a wider range of people for who education is not that accessible. Check this interview of Malcom Gladwell On Trends in Higher Education – Michigan Ross to know his views on this issue.
So we see that online tutoring is the future of education. People will need more and more private tutors to refresh their knowledge, and finding so many local tutors for this job is impossible. So, the only way to get high-quality and affordable tutors is through an online tutoring service provider. We can already find enormous learning resources online on youtube and google. It will only increase and improve with time.
