“We are born weak, we need strength; helpless, we need aid; foolish, we need reason. All that we lack at birth, all that we need when we come to man’s estate, is the gift of education”; a famous quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau, a Genevan philosopher, writer, and composer describes all about the need of education in one’s life.
It is education that defines knowledge and success in every human’s life and lucky are those who have the chance to complete their education without any snag. But for the unfortunates who seek to study after long gap, despite of family and work responsibilities, MOOCs online learning programs are life saviors. Let me explain how!
Most of the time, judgment or decisions of our life are backed with compromises and duress which do not allow us to go forward. But given a chance or time, one always wants to finish the unfinished. Be it the career choice, job or family responsibilities, most of us do not get enough time to continue what we really want to. This gap between the career/life-choice and education need not to remain forever as the Indian Higher Education System embraces online/distance learning or MOOCs education in India to reach out larger section of the society who want to study.
