web-based learning

Learning through the Web is the new trend of learning things in the modern world. Web-based learning platforms are growing at a very fast rate. Evolution of technology has made learning easy and fun. Now, You don’t need to attend college for learning about any type of content. You just name it and it is there on the internet.

Effects of the change

It is not only helping the students worldwide to learn but also the teachers, experts, and professionals to spread their knowledge without limitations. It is not limited to the certified group of people who can teach online. Anyone who learns to command over a concept has been given the opportunity for explaining it to others.

Platforms like Udacity, Udemy and edx.org are dominating in building this new era of learning. Providing certification courses for a comparably low cost is helping thousands of people in getting jobs and being updated.

It is helping people to generate some passive income with ease. If you are confident enough to express your knowledge then you’re welcome to teach as an e-tutor. We can say that teaching has been made simple and more interactive.

What exactly is Web-based learning?

Anything which you learn from a source that involves internet connectivity comes under web-based learning. Yes! It is not limited to taking online courses it includes many things.

  • Blogs
  • Web Tutorials
  • Web seminars
  • E-tuitions
  • Virtual Classrooms

It is true that an easy to load new information into our brain. But, Assume that you searched for a term on google and you read the article from a blog that was listed on the top. The very next day you presented that information in front of some knowledgeable people and they totally disagreed with you. You came to know that the information that was written there is wrong. Then you can’t do anything except putting negative comments on that blog.

online learning

Point is you totally can’t rely on the information that is provided to you by a random person. So, Below are the pros and cons of web-based learning.

Pros

  1. Flexible- You as a learner can study at anytime of his/her choice at any place. There is no bounding of time and place.
  2. Access to the content- The content is available always 24*7 and can be accessed some days after as well.
  3. Suitable for self-learners- If you believe in learning the content on your terms and don’t feel comfortable in class learning. Then online learning is just perfect for you.
  4. Updated Content- The content on every platform is updated regularly with every new advancement in the older one.
  5. Pace- Your mind your pace, Unlike class you don’t have to wait for others to catch up. After learning a stuff you can easily jump into a new one without waiting.
  6. Cost-effective-  It is less costly as compared to that of the traditional manner. A lot of new things can be learned at the same cost as your semester or college fees.
  7. No geographical boundaries- The student can be from any part of the world as well as the teacher.
  8. The way of explanation-  The concepts can be made understood with help of animation or interactive graphics. The language used can be more lite and easy to make it more understandable for the learner.

Cons

  1. Needs Self-motivation- It needs a lot of focus from the learner’s side as there are no restrictions. He/she can be easily distracted.
  2. Connectivity- Connectivity can be an issue sometimes due to uncertain factors. It includes a change in weather, slow speed, accessibility of internet from remote areas.
  3. Lack of social environment- There is no presence of a learning environment. It can be a very important factor for many of the active and class prone learners who love to learn in a physical environment.
  4. Misleading- Due to the absence of restrictions the instructor can teach a wrong thing just like in the above case. He/she can also guide the learner to a miscellaneous agenda who knows.
  5. Interaction- In most cases when the student asks a question the teacher is not present their at that time to answer his/her curiosity. The student has to send a separate message which is not sure to be answered.
  6. Book knowledge is not replaceable- If you have to get a deep knowledge you always have to refer to the books. No matter how advanced the online learning gets books will always be the first preference.

web based learning

Expectations

We expect that the web-based learning tools keep helping us in enriching our knowledge. Although, It has some disadvantages or we can say loopholes where work is still needed to be done but it is expected to be fixed soon in the coming future.

The scope of web-based learning is going to expand at a more bigger level with the opening of new possibilities. Till now we can say that the information provided through online platforms is reliable in every 8/10 times. The things are getting better with every passing year as the technology is evolving.

TOP 5 BREAKTHROUGH TECHNOLOGIES OF 2018

Published

dueling rival neural networks
the top 5 breakthrough technologies in 2018

Here is look at top 5 breakthrough technologies from 2018 that will create revolution. 3-d metal printing, artificial embryos, dueling neural networks, babel-fish earbuds and much more…

1. 3-D Metal Printing

3d metal printing applications in the automotive industry

Metal 3-D Printing holds a unique position in modern-day product development. The technology can create lighter, stronger parts, and complex shapes that aren’t possible with conventional metal fabrication methods. It facilitates tooling for conventional manufacturing technologies, reducing costs and lead times. It can also provide more precise control of the microstructure of metals. In 2017, researchers from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory announced they had developed a 3-D-printing method for creating stainless-steel parts twice as strong as traditionally made ones. 

Also in 2017, 3-D-printing company Markforged, a small startup based outside Boston, released the first 3-D metal printer for under $100,000.

Another Boston-area startup, Desktop Metal, began to ship its first metal prototyping machines in December 2017. It plans to begin selling larger machines, designed for manufacturing, that are 100 times faster than older metal printing methods.

The printing of metal parts is also getting easier. Desktop Metal now offers software that generates designs ready for 3-D printing. Users tell the program the specs of the object they want to print, and the software produces a computer model suitable for printing.   

2. Artificial Embryos

In a breakthrough that redefines how life can be created, embryologists working at the University of Cambridge in the UK have grown realistic-looking mouse embryos using only stem cells. No egg. No sperm. Just cells plucked from another embryo.

Synthetic human embryos would be a boon to scientists, letting them tease apart events early in development. And since such embryos start with easily manipulated stem cells, labs will be able to employ a full range of tools, such as gene editing, to investigate them as they grow.

Artificial embryos, however, pose ethical questions. What if they turn out to be indistinguishable from real embryos? How long can they be grown in the lab before they feel pain? We need to address those questions before the science races ahead much further, bioethicists say.

3. AI for Everybody

AI for everybody

Artificial intelligence has so far been mainly the plaything of big tech companies like Amazon, Baidu, Google, and Microsoft, as well as some startups. For many other companies and parts of the economy, AI systems are too expensive and too difficult to implement fully.

What’s the solution? Machine-learning tools based in the cloud are bringing AI to a far broader audience. These products will be essential if the AI revolution is going to spread more broadly through different parts of the economy.

Currently AI is used mostly in the tech industry, where it has created efficiencies and produced new products and services. But many other businesses and industries have struggled to take advantage of the advances in artificial intelligence. Sectors such as medicine, manufacturing, and energy could also be transformed if they were able to implement the technology more fully, with a huge boost to economic productivity.

4. Dueling Neural Networks

Artificial intelligence is getting very good at identifying things: show it a million pictures, and it can tell you with uncanny accuracy which ones depict a pedestrian crossing a street. But AI is hopeless at generating images of pedestrians by itself. If it could do that, it would be able to create gobs of realistic but synthetic pictures depicting pedestrians in various settings, which a self-driving car could use to train itself without ever going out on the road.

The problem is, creating something entirely new requires imaginationand until now that has perplexed AIs.

The solution first occurred to Ian Goodfellow, then a PhD student at the University of Montreal, during an academic argument in a bar in 2014. The approach, known as a generative adversarial network, or GAN, takes two neural networksthe simplified mathematical models of the human brain that underpin most modern machine learningand pits them against each other in a digital cat-and-mouse game.

Both networks are trained on the same data set. One, known as the generator, is tasked with creating variations on images it’s already seenperhaps a picture of a pedestrian with an extra arm. The second, known as the discriminator, is asked to identify whether the example it sees is like the images it has been trained on or a fake produced by the generatorbasically, is that three-armed person likely to be real?

Over time, the generator can become so good at producing images that the discriminator can’t spot fakes. Essentially, the generator has been taught to recognize, and then create, realistic-looking images of pedestrians.

The technology has become one of the most promising advances in AI in the past decade, able to help machines produce results that fool even humans.

 

5. Babel-Fish Earbuds

pixel earbuds for automatic language transalation

In the cult sci-fi classic The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, you slide a yellow Babel fish into your ear to get translations in an instant. In the real world, Google has come up with an interim solution: a $159 pair of earbuds, called Pixel Buds. These work with its Pixel smartphones and Google Translate app to produce practically real-time translation.

Google Translate already has a conversation feature, and its iOS and Android apps let two users speak as it automatically figures out what languages they’re using and then translates them. But background noise can make it hard for the app to understand what people are saying, and also to figure out when one person has stopped speaking and it’s time to start translating.

Pixel Buds get around these problems because the wearer taps and holds a finger on the right earbud while talking. Splitting the interaction between the phone and the earbuds gives each person control of a microphone and helps the speakers maintain eye contact, since they’re not trying to pass a phone back and forth.
