The benefits of education will only be online, nationally and internationally,
from digital devices of now and the future
In fact the proliferation of only online education should make public schools and governments more involved in online virtual world and I think should bring many benefits in addition to benefits brought by the involvement of Internet today.
There will be many accurate and free online academic and other resources from government agencies, making the web a better place. This should influence all Internet workforce but mainly online learners, researchers and students. Also government agencies should develop more and better and free online learning tools helping more the online web workers, students and learners to learn what they want easily and accurately.
Also not optional online education will make offline education limited to only practical sessions required in some educational fields. In a few years with this setup, required online education should self-develop to the level could not make any further progress, so the world will reach a peak in technology and education development. This will make the most people to achieve the skills in their target subject or subjects easily.
Online education means learning without distractions, at your comfort or your own environment. You no longer will have to travel to school or buy books or other school materials. In other words costs and time should be saved and used for other activities that bring more skills and learning than it’s offline counterpart.
The technology tools for permanent online education I think should be the same as today’s online education, the Computer, Tablet, and Phone, and the Network, as of hardware. The development of software connected to Internet should make a lot of progress and development with gov agencies involved. Books should be in electronic format in digital libraries either governments’ public online libraries or schools online libraries.
Communication will increase but stay to the level of today with email, and chat text, voice, video, notifications and alerts, and social networks communication. This via Wi-Fi and cellular 3G and 4G technologies.
In conclusion I think governments should enforce required online education, and by the year 2020 all countries’ education should be online. All walks of life will reach top development by then.
