Why are educators supposed to be prepared?
We are constantly saying that Visual Classrooms are the future of Teaching and all the educators need to prepare for it and a major reason for this is the growing market size of the eLearning market. The online education market in India was valued at INR 39 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach INR 360.3 billion by 2024, expanding at a CAGR of 43.85% during the 2019-2024 period and it can grow even more due the pandemic and lockdown. Many teachers are shifting to virtual classrooms because students find it more attractive but switching to Online Learning doesn't mean vanishment of traditional classroom teaching, it’s just adding technologies to the general classroom teaching. A virtual classroom is nothing different, everything is just online. You have visual contact just not the physical one. Even Virtual Teaching is better for the teachers who have some kind of hesitation while teaching the students in a classroom.
