The technological advances of today are making the act of physically getting up and doing things a thing of the past. They are making having to get up, get dressed and go out an ever-increasingly redundant activity. They are bringing things to our homes, rather than us having to go out and get them ourselves. Below are just three of the ways in which advances in technology, namely advances in online technology, are giving us more of a chance to put our feet up.
Did you know that you can now take a whole university course online and graduate from it with a degree? This has revolutionised the world of education twofold as it cuts out the need for students to attend class in order to learn and pass. The lessons are accessed online and assignments are submitted there too. This means that, aside from the deadlines in place, a student can do their work wherever they want in their own time. It is revolutionary because it means more and more people are taking degrees as they now know they don’t have to fall behind in their career to do so. For instance, a budding business person or even a business’s boss can take an online Business Management degree to improve their acumen in the field, without attending a class. This means they can expand their business skill set as well as devote time to actively chasing their career in business.
The creation of online doctor platforms has also been a revolution, but this a revolution on a bigger scale. Not everybody wants to gain a degree, but everybody gets sick. And now, when people do get sick, they need not visit their doctor in person. No, they can simply log on to their technological device and have a face-to-face conversation with a professional health giver through a screen. This means that anybody who is sick need not waste energy dragging themselves to their local GP. They can now save their energy and devote it to getting better as well as getting full and clear medical advice.
E-commerce, otherwise known as online shopping, is a good business. It is a good business for those that sell things via online marketplaces, and it is good business for those that buy things via them. It is good because it offers consumers the chance to compare things instantly. It is good because it cuts down on travel expenses and time spent travelling. it is good because it means the consumer doesn’t have to lug heavy shopping bags around with them and get them home. There are plenty of reasons why e-commerce has taken over the world of shopping, and when you see them all it’s not hard to see why.
So, there you have it. Three reasons why you should accept and learn about online technology. But there are more than just three reasons. One is that you could impress your kids by doing so. Another is that you could be the envy of all your friends. The most important, however, is that it will improve your life twofold if you do.
