It would be easy to overuse this idea. What a disservice to journalism if we allow it.
Which Of The Following Is A Disadvantage Of Online Learning Quizlet
Quizlet is a leader in the learning industry. It has amassed a user base of over 4.5 million. This week I tested Quizlet, and the results were interesting. Before I test the results further, though, let me tell you that Quizlet is a good platform for the average user who is learning how to teach math or trigonometry in 30 seconds or less. It is an easy platform for basic learning. It is also a great platform for students at all levels.
But what about students at higher levels? What about the future of affordable higher education? You think the way to pay for it is to get a job and teach? You think the only way to get the knowledge you need to graduate is to go to college? I wouldn’t say that’s what Quizlet is for, but now, even lower levels are dependent on Quizlet. These are students who don’t have the time or confidence to take classes at a 4-year university. They have no chance of getting a job on the job. So, how do they get on the job? They learn by doing. And how do they get on the job? Their schools make online courses free for their students. These schools and institutions are providing free online learning (and education!) on top of their salaries and getting away with it. They are taking advantage of the knowledge and skills the professors are creating at their institutions. My question is, why are we so concerned about the proliferation of online courses for 4-year students if it is being facilitated at the 4-year level by the 4-year schools?
There is currently a movement towards online learning for students who are not 4-year students. Take standardized testing courses or entrance exams. A great example is for people who have ADHD (or anxiety disorder) and are not comfortable with tests. There is a platform called Onit and it tests students to see if they have a significant fear of tests. The platform works with schools to allow students access to a friend to test with while taking the test. It is a great tool for people who have behavioral issues in general, like this, or for people with ADHD to test their sensitivity to stress. Onit is currently geared towards high school students. They have a great grant program called Onit Awards, so if you have ADHD, use this Grant Program on the high school version of Onit, to check if you have a concern about standardized tests or if you have anxiety about taking tests. If you have a concern, this grant will help you be able to get help.
For students who don’t want to take tests in high school but do want to take standardized tests, there is an online school called PreTech that currently has classes at such schools as WOODY, JOHNSON & GIVENS, NA, and MOUNT WASHINGTON ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS in addition to having students take remedial math courses in high school. They allow students to take the online PreTech courses for free and then transfer that specific skill and knowledge to use in higher education. Students can take the test online and be able to see their results at the end of the year. And the students are able to take the PreTech program that they are familiar with for free, but have to pay for in a different way, which is tuition at college. The app is highly rated, especially by people with educational experience. PreTech is currently focused on critical thinking and writing so I don’t understand how they aren’t a direct competitor with Quizlet. And yet they can help 4-year students who do not wish to take the standardized tests in high school.
It seems Quizlet is providing courseware to these sites through its new channel deal with Onit, but Onit is not providing any courseware to the schools that are taking online courses. It is complicated. There are more layers of copyright between the 3 companies than we could understand. I strongly suggest taking the Onit Grants to see if you qualify. I also think Quizlet has a great deal of risk in allowing the higher education admissions offices to be as powerful as they are. Quizlet should add a manual override feature to use Quizlet as their way of checking the student has taken their online test and are psychologically capable of taking those standardized tests (Even though there are so many graders, why not use a manual override feature?). If Quizlet became disabled by one of the universities, that would create a very angry user base.
