Studying from top universities just a click away!

India has a number of top universities and brilliant educational institutions that might leave one spellbound. But these days it doesn’t seem easy for a student to get into these high cadre institutions, all of which demand the highest grades in town. But you see, life always has an open end. Gone are the days when students used to feel depressed on not getting into reputable institutions. Their lives are now powered by internet. One booming facility can revolutionize their careers only if they use it the right way. With connectivity of the world to the mesh of web and enhanced pitch of web centric communications, options for online methods of learning and online ways of knowledge transfer have come into being. World class universities like Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Harvard University, Berklee College of Music, Boston University and many more like this have facilitated online courses in different fields of study like biology, chemistry, literature, economics, music , physics etc. Online courses provide a relaxed scheduling because of which students are ensured freedom from stress, one of the significant problems students deal with. Other benefit of such courses is that many innovative courses gearing to the latest development of science and digital technologies or those centering on vocational training are ensured through online facility which may not be offered by traditional universities; since this is an unquestionable fact that foreign universities have a wide range of subjects and courses to offer which are not easily available in India. Degrees from such reputed institutions surely heighten the success rate of a student’s career. . Each learning sequence is composed of short videos interspersed with interactive learning exercises, where students can immediately practice the concepts from the videos. The courses often include tutorial videos that are similar to small on-campus discussion groups, an online textbook, and an online discussion forum where students can post and review questions and comments to each other and teaching assistants For instance, universities like Harvard is offering a free 12 week interactive course on Neuroscience, they don’t require you to buy any textbooks instead they link students to related text in open-source neuroscience textbooks online. Could you ask for more? Other similar online courses are offered by universities like MIT which is currently offering a course on physics and also on improving one’s entrepreneurial skills, Wellesley College offering a course on evolution and genetics, University of Washington on global marketing, and New York Institute of Finance on Introductory Economics. Even Indian institutions like IIT-Bombay has joined the league and now offers a computer programming course. Other top universities which stand amongst the 10 best online courses offering institutions are California Institute of Technology, Columbia University, University of California, Berkeley and many others. The future of higher education lies with online learning. It is a way of learning without limits for some. In the end I’ll only say “This is only the beginning, Courserians!”
