The Essence of Online Education: Why is it so important?

Published on 26th May 2020

Since the last decade online education has become available to everyone – both teachers and people who highly appreciate this moment. In fact, did you know that online courses can be effective and engaging, just like traditional classroom?

On the other side, companies have big expectations in a sense of education of their employees especially in a crisis. Let’s see some facts about this important topic and why is this modern world important:

* E-learning is one of the top training methods within organizations of any kind;

* Companies with comprehensive training programs online have over 200% higher revenue per employee;

* 72% of global organizations report that e-learning gives them (or could potentially give them) a competitive advantage in their industry.

 

We did something brave…

 

Agile Serbia is aware of the importance of online education during this whole new situation. Yes, these are unusual circumstances, but our hunger for knowledge overcame certain obstacles. Together as a team and with support of Miljan Bajić, we actually found significant reasons why online education is so desirable in modern world. Because it’s new, there’s was a small dose of worries, but we are true Agile professionals.

Increased flexibility, ease of access and individualized learning are just some of the benefits of online education. On the other side, we succeeded in getting over the lack of social interaction and losing focus. Yes, this Agile Month Spring 2020 was outstanding! And yes – interest in our Courses is still growing… a lot. 😊

 

Just read some impressions from our participant, Milan Pisarić (Keba D.O.O.):

,,Last month I had a chance to attend a CSPO training. Due to the special covid19 situation, the training was organized online rather than physically.

Although my initial thought was that this may be a drawback, the training itself proved me wrong. Not only was the training successful, but I have also experienced a very grateful pace. Instead of working for 2 days intensively, we had a chance to work 5 days semi-intensively and this way to adopt the knowledge shared in a friendlier manner. After all, every one of the participants had enough time to soak in the information shared that day, and steadily prepare for the next day. The coach used collaborative tools that helped us overcome physical isolation, which also went pretty well. Of course, not everything was so smooth – as sometimes the interaction seemed artificial or slow because of the silence and solitude – which may have turned out differently if we were together in a classroom setting. Some extroverts may find the lack of direct physical interaction and communication within the group as a strong drawback in this type of training. As I have been participating in remote scrum meetings for some time now, this online environment did not seem strange or challenging to me at all.

I have strengthened my knowledge of both scrum and agile in general, which will certainly help me in the future. The training proved that we misuse some scrum practices in the company, while there are also several useful tactics that could enable us to turn the agile processes to our benefit. The coach motivated me to continue learning about agile methodologies and I expect to keep evolving in the future. The first step is to implement everything learned and discussed in my PO activities.ʻʻ


 

Still more great news  👇  👇  👇 

Online trainings are the present and the future of education in every industry especially in a crisis. Agile Serbia team overcame obstacles by creating smaller and more interactive groups where participants are getting full attention of the Trainer. Also, more valuable networking and small talks are results of interactive coaching.

 

Suzana Čubrilo (Endava D.O.O) gained a lot with our online Course:

“I really enjoyed the CSM course. At first I thought that it will be difficult to maintain our attention on online Course, but it turned out that I am going to take away a lot of knowledge that I can easily and quickly apply, both personally and professionally. The course was the right mix of theory and practical demonstration.

Also, I was confused with an approach in which we had people with all kind of level of certification, but it turned out it’s a good way to discover a variety of different experiences.”


Still, we understand there are some doubts about online Courses and we’re always here to encourage you about your Agile education. The high quality of training is constantly the main demand for both, Trainer and participants as well as the valuable knowledge you’ll get (and which you paid for). All our Courses are as always certified by Scrum Alliance who is in charge of worldwide certification. This is an international organization that defines and supports the guidelines for the most popular Scrum certification. With their proven reputation, the quality of each training is the top priority, especially in these a little bit changed conditions. In that sense, you will receive a complete Certificate as proof that you had listened to everything about Scrum Master or Product Owner world.

Outstanding results and positive experiences motivated us to recreate ONLINE Certified Scrum Master Course (1-2 of June) and ONLINE Certified Scrum Product Owner Course (3-4 of June) with amazing Petri Heiramo, Certified Scrum Trainer! We have a very successful cooperation with Petri for 8 years and without his expertise and online experience these Courses wouldn’t be the same.

 

 

We are brave and efficient enough to adapt and solve upcoming educational challenges because knowledge is essential and meaningful for all of us. Join us in this new June adventure. Don’t miss to embrace exceptional education with real professionals, good connections and certification recognized in the modern business world.⚡️
