People from third-world or developing countries who want to get
updated or advanced education from industrialized nations are
having a hard time, mostly because of immigration or visa
requirements. This is much is true in countries like Japan, the
United States and the United Kingdom, whose immigration
qualifications are very stringent. In some countries, the United
States requires that a certain amount be placed in trust as a
bond to ensure that visitors do return to their countries of
Educators in these developed countries recognize the desire of
foreign students to avail themselves of superior standards in
education. This is where the internet becomes a central tool in
global, quality education.
If you go online today, you will find plenty of colleges,
universities and even Ivy League institutions offering online
education ranging from certification, degree, post graduate and
doctorate level courses. These online schools and universities
are certainly convenient for those who cannot enter developed
countries due to lack of qualifications for visa approval
In the domestic front, these online schools become an
alternative to the physically handicapped or mentally ill. For
people with motor dysfunctions such as Parkinson’s disease,
online education becomes a saving grace in their lives. It not
only becomes convenient, but it also provides these people with
a connection to the world right in their own homes. Having the
burden of education addressed by the internet is a convenience
for the operators of care facilities as they can exclusively use
these online schools for the education of their patients or as
extra sources and materials used in their curriculum.
With all of these in mind, new materials and tools for online
instruction need to be developed. Foremost among these necessary
tools is audio and video streaming through the internet.
Audio-video streaming allows for two people to instantly
communicate from distinctly separate locations. An instructor
can use the internet to talk to his or her student face to face,
so to speak.
One thing our educators agree upon is that there is no better
teacher than experience. In recent years, companies started
manufacturing educational videos for use by infants. By using
these video, infants are projected to start learning at an
earlier age than before. Because of the audio-video experience,
the attention given to these videos by an infant is considerably
more than they would give to a children’s book. In being able to
grab attention and interest, the video succeeds in educating the
mind of the child.
In the same manner, the use of audio and video in the education
of older children, juveniles and adults is a more interesting
and entertaining experience than a plain chemistry book. With a
person actually able to see the animated structure of an atom,
the curiosity of that individual is stimulated. When people
become curious, their imagination becomes active and they strive
to gather more information about the subject.
This is where the importance of education through video lies.
The content (assuming that it is interesting) grabs the viewers’
attention and stirs their curiosity, thereby stimulating a
thirst for knowledge.
As internet audio-video streaming technology improves, the more
use they will become to online educational institutions. People
who have knowledge of how to install and use these utilities are
quickly becoming assets to many entrepreneurs, especially those
businesses that are situated in the internet.
To your success,
P.S. The use of video streaming technology by websites has
ballooned significantly. Even websites designed by amateurs and
those people who have their own blog sites are starting to
sprout videos. Video streaming is starting to grow. You might
want to grow with it.
