With the pandemic knocking at our doors, the classrooms were replaced by homes, the books by mobile phones and the pens by the keyboard. The gauge of the learning parameter was severely affected as learning and teaching both became strenuous. The time emphasised the need to divert our focus from the physical resources to the virtual ones.
Humans develop and advance technology but fail to keep pace with it. The irony is the consequence of the negligence of the education system towards growing with the technology. It thus falls behind in embodying the three most important traits for any institution: Adaptability, Flexibility and Creativity.
The future does behold unprecedented events and thus, education must align itself with the advancing technology to prepare the generation for the world that is and will change, constantly.
5 ways in which cloud IS the change
Cloud is not a ubiquitous concept in this sector. It was popular even before the pandemic and was used in the field of higher education. As per the reports of Forbes, one reason that the universities adopted it was to engage more millennials, whose college decisions and approaches are changing drastically because of the accumulated student loans even before they acquire a career-oriented skill set.
While the institutions and colleges need to maintain sustainable fees, they also have to ensure that they do not add to the financial burden of students and their families. The pressure of providing quality education is constant and cannot be compromised as well.
Cloud technology entered into the picture as the middle ground, most universities could reach. The investment in the cloud not only has proved to be cost-effective for them, aiding the problem of fees sustainability but has also allowed them to invest their time and money in other vital facets.
The three ways in which cloud has saved the educational pillars are-
Dealing with the enormous paperwork of the school including the admission details, students directory, mark sheets, test papers and homework is cumbersome. It became even more exhausting and arduous online. It became difficult for the teachers, students and parents to have access to the records when needed.
Nevertheless, the cloud offers the perfect remedy. Companies like Dcirrus offer cloud platforms where access to information can be given to the users easily. The data can be accessed anytime and anywhere. Thus, the student records can be made both accessible to the students and the parents, and help the teachers track them adequately. The students can also collaborate with the other students and their teachers to put together better assignments.
Teachers also gain from collaborative learning by adding virtual classes, online assignments, live chats, etc. Additionally, with the help of the Q&A feature of Virtual Data Rooms, addressing the doubts of the students is no longer a stress for the teachers.
In the path to strike a balance between quality academics and fee sustainability, the cloud seems to be the perfect fit. The technology reduces the operational cost of any organisation. The initial cost of transferring the data or shifting to it might give you some budget constraints but it redeems itself eventually by slashing off operative costs.
The institutions can easily let go of the need to set up a private cloud. They can easily host all the data and perform its related activities on it by giving a nominal fee to the cloud service providers.
Service providers like Dcirrus, assure you quality service at an affordable price that can rid the IT departments of redundant data management practices. They can thus spend their time performing other tasks with much efficiency.
▶Expanding the access of study material
People adopt technology, when it has a positive impact on their lives, when it makes their lives simpler. For, a technology gains trust only if it lifts some weight off the shoulders of people.
The pandemic had pushed all the educational institutions to shut down. The students all across the world had to return to their hometowns as well. It, therefore resulted in cutting all the ties between a student and the faculty. The schools were forced to shift to a virtual platform where the study material could be uploaded and made accessible to all. Thanks to the Dcirrus cloud, an unlimited amount of data can be easily uploaded on the server and the students can easily access, collaborate and continue their learning.
▶Increased emphasis on self-study
With time being saved in travelling to campus and attending in-person lectures, students were free to make their work schedules. The availability of study material on the cloud at their own ease, helped them in studying at their own pace which further enhanced their self-study period.
Studies and experiences of students have already proven that self-study is the best way to attain academic goals.
Conclusively, cloud computing has in each way helped in compensating the loss of students due to distant learning.
▶A Modern Approach
Change in perspective and approach bridges the gap between learning and innovation. The quality of education imparted today is a precap of how the future is going to be.
The sector has been very resistant to modifications. However, the recent rise in e-learning is changing that scenario. The students who could not travel or attend the physical classes especially during the pandemic are highly benefited from the cloud infrastructure. The heavy baggage of textbooks is swiftly being replaced by cloud platforms where the professors can easily hand in the bulky study notes.
Hence, Cloud and education is a combination for a world full of possibilities, where learning is not the end but a process.
