Education and Digitalization
by Jackson Haley
- Online classes/lectures are polydirectional
- Online classes allow information to flow from one person (the teacher) to many (the students)
- Online classes cause "Death of Distance"
- Whether you're at UC Davis or in the heart of Africa, anyone can access online classes through the internet
- Distance is a huge factor when it comes to getting educated, and online classes overcome that barrier
- Online classes also have/cause "Timeless Time"
- Online classes are asynchronous (video is made at one time, and students view it at another time)
- Teachers can use synchronous forms of communication (video chatting) if a student has a question or wants further explanation
- Online classes leave digital footprints
- Once posted online, it can always stay online and could be accessed by anyone
- Digital footprints for online classes can be a very good thing. In the future, many new educational videos will be made and old educational videos can be made available for all people to see
