Virtual Education Business sounds very classy, right? If you would have gone to an investor to pitch in your idea of starting a Virtual Education Business say a few years back, he would have done a standard drug test on you and this would have been a prospective content for the director of Kabir Singh.
This concept did start a few years back but people put it into practice quite recently actually. The first-ever completely online course was offered in 1984 by the University of Toronto, say what now? Does this mean that many students could have stayed at home and studied? Yes, you could pretty much have studied from home had you been aware of it. I mean India was an independent country by then, we even had electronic computers which were introduced in the year 1955 by “Samarendra Kumar Mitra” so what was the actual problem?
The answer is that a majority of Indians were not science geeks. Only if “The Big Bang Theory” show started in the year 1990, the evolution of E-learning would have been sooner and the people would have been comfortable with online coaching to this date. Life can’t be that simple, no?
At present, we are fortunate to have various apps that can be used to learn virtually. Other than apps we have E-learning sites such as Udemy, Byjus, Coursera, My Captain, Khan Academy, Topper, and many more. These enterprises are earning a whopping amount since the initial lockdown.
