Social media plays a vital role in our lives. Many believe that social media is simply another way to minimize personal contact whereas for some it is a total waste of time. Personal opinions are certainly respected, yet let us look into it from another perspective. Here, you will come to know how social media can be used as a learning platform.
How a Student can utilize Social Media for e-learning?
- Find out communities or groups on e-learning platforms where you can post your queries and clear doubts. A two way communication through social media is one of the effective methods of learning.
- Students can find, analyse and also share information through online learning sites. They can discuss theories and have a chat with experts through social media platforms.
- Student’s communication skills are improved through social media. The online platforms provide an opportunity to connect with other students and teachers coming from different backgrounds and locations.
- Learning through social media is not simply restricted to syllabus. Watching educational videos and inspirational stories plays a major role in enhancing one’s career.
If you are a student who have completed class X and now busy looking for PU admissions or if you are preparing for competitive exams like JEE-Advanced, KVPY, NEET or CET, then definitely you should take a break from social media and concentrate on your studies more. The importance of social media in learning should not be ignored. One would be astonished by the endless opportunities offered by social media.
