1. Adaptive Content: While teaching, a teacher should be selective of his/her ways of teaching and the content he/she is going to teach. Because teaching online is a difficult task and making the students understand is even more difficult. So the teacher should introduce easy and adaptive ways so that the children can comprehend it fast, like conduct quizzes, provide multiple-choice questions and question answer sessions which will make the child more proactive while the online session. Also a teacher can use a whiteboard while teaching the children online, so similar to using the GoToWebinar app, it is easy to use and the children will find it pretty simple to access. Also, for more convenience of the students, the teachers can upload the content or the study material in their particular school/college website so that the students can get the online material easily. And the stride should be a little slower while making the students understand the content, otherwise there will be confusion while revising.

 

2. Frequent Testing : Online tests on a frequent basis will make the child’s brain more agile and extra generative. As he/she can modify his/her mistakes easily. And those tests will let us know how the individual is grasping things and how he/she is presenting it on the test table.

 

3. Immediate Feedback :  Once the classes are done, there should be a feedback session, so that the teaching and the ways of conduct can be improved as per the students need and convenience. This will enable some quality session in a proper and precise manner.

Students can conform themselves according to their role and responsibilities and can commit to a multitude of things at a time. And it's not hard to guess why students appreciate e-learning so much, because of its convenience and time-serving than any traditional way of learning. It only asks for your login credentials and a bit of your internet data, so it is cheaper than the conventional teaching. It also requires less investment. So e-learning is more or less and win-win for the current generation.

Similarly, if an e-learning site provides an individual with certifications and online badges, then the student or the individual will surely attend the classes and, in turn, will discover something new in this due course of time. So if you want to attract people to visit your e-learning session, allure them with some goodies which will add up to their resume or may help them in the nearer future.
