#OnlineLearningDay 2020: Black Pioneers Cracking Online Learning

It’s amazing how the rapid advancement of technology has made learning and education easier for millennials and just about everyone else. With this opportunity, learning has become open to virtually all. In countries where traditional learning has vast obstacles, individuals can take advantage of online courses. Online learning has now become a part of many institutions with certificates, degrees, and online language learning being accessible with the touch of a mouse.

Advances in technology now allow students to study entirely online while still socializing with classmates, watching lectures and participating in subject-specific discussions.

Seeing the need to diversify the ample opportunities of online learning, these dynamic leaders have come up with amazing ways to augment and widen the scope of online learning courses and opportunities.
