Lesson 6: Final Takeaways


Final takeaways

In the Digital Age, people have different attitudes toward change. Some are excited, while others worry about what all this might mean for the future.

Technology is here to stay, and education shouldn’t be something that simply ends once you leave school. For people all over the world, online learning is making lifelong learning more real, more possible, and more valuable. Here are some final takeaways:

  1. Options for learners of all ages have continued to expand. Whether you’re a parent, student, professional, or retiree, don’t be afraid to think outside the box and try out new courses and platforms. 
  2. Online learning can help you to maintain a better work-life balance.
  3. Spend some time outlining your goals and how you can accomplish them.
  4. Know which online formats work best for you, based on your personality and motivations.
  5. The internet gives you access to an unlimited amount of educational resources. You have the power to decide how and when you learn

That last point is especially crucial. Author and futurist Isaac Asimov summed it up nicely: “Self-education is, I firmly believe, the only form of education there is.” There’s you, the search bar, and a world of possibilities–just waiting to be discovered!
