How much An Hour of Learning costs?

As a mother, I want only the best for my son. My husband and I are working very hard, with business sidelines, just to make sure our son will have a brighter future.

Education is one of the most important things that a parent can give to their children. It is something no one can take away from them. I want my son to finish any degree he wants to pursue. I want him to follow what he loves to do. Anyway, sooner, it will be his life and we are just here to support him all the way.

But education is no way cheaper nowadays. We will surely have a long way ahead for our 32-month old son. So much as the cost is the types of education we can give them. 

In the fast-phase age now with modern technology, everything is almost possible. E-learning programs that are being developed my modern learning companies like LeanForward, are becoming popular now.

So what is e-learning? E-learning, according to Wikipedia, is the use of various kinds of electronic media and information and communication technologies (ICT) in education. E-Learning includes numerous types of media that deliver text, audio, images, animation, and streaming video, and includes technology applications and processes such as audio or video tape, satellite TV, CD-ROM, and computer-based learning, as well as local intranet/extranet and web-based learning.

E-learning training programs, when properly developed are said to be as effective, if not more effective, as the Instructor Led-Training. There are many schools and companies who are already implementing e-learning programs. 

Just in case you want to know how much an hour of learning through cost (Instructor Led-Training versus e-Learning), just click the infographic below.

I am not saying that we can live by without our traditional Instructor/Teacher for teaching or Speakers for training programs. Even if e-learning programs are of good help to us, we should still give importance on the direct contact with our Teachers/Instructors.
