It is no surprise that we have survived over the years, where millennials or preferably the cohort of Generation Z, started from enrolling into schools and college abiding by societal norms to breaking norms about conventional education and rapidly transitioning to more convenient and viable techniques of acquiring quality education enriched with real-world skills. Yes. You have decoded the entire concept of what is going to follow further. 

While this idea of self-education is slowly gaining widespread attention, another recent paradigm shift that has forced the world to turn heads is the outbreak of the globally-declared pandemic - The COVID-19 (Coronavirus).

Catching up with the new buzz - Distance learning, MOOCs and platforms alike

Needless to say, one of the many sectors that took an unbearable blow straight in the face is the education sector. While this is a time where the numbers can be misleading, almost all schools and universities that were fully functional, have now shut its doors concerning the potential damage that the Coronavirus ensues. Conversely, we can still hope there is light at the end of the tunnel. E-learning to the rescue. Possibly, the most undermined platform by all of us, e-learning platforms, has a lot to offer beyond the textbooks. Resourceful, reliable, and extremely flexible, providing learners with access to real-world skills by exposure to interdisciplinary courses, e-learning has garnered high demand and responses in recent times.
