Ever wondered how information and communication would have stagnated without the Internet and online access?
The transformation of communication and the way information is disseminated in the present day context is unfathomable. We are not only living in a knowledge-based society but in one which has made that knowledge increasingly easily reachable anywhere, anytime in the world.
Thanks to the Internet and information availability, the extent of reach of information has transformed greatly. Education is one such area that has seen the benefits of such reach, manifold. The success of individuals in their chosen careers depends vastly on their success in academics. The term ‘academics’ not only stands for the wider classroom education experience but also denotes one-on-one interaction with an educator, teacher or tutor.
The availability and quality of content is playing an important role in students completing their educational commitments. Assignments and examinations are an integral part of academics and calls for concerted efforts to assemble vast amounts of information in as short a time as possible. While libraries, archives and quite often experienced tutors are at hand to offer assistance, sometimes this may not be sufficient. This lacuna is being felt not only by college and university students but also high school students in subjects like mathematics and accounting.
This niche area of expertise is now being filled by online tutors and educational agencies that offer assistance to students in meeting their examination and home assignment needs. Many ‘knowledge enhancement companies’ owned by groups of professionals from the accounting, teaching, finance, management and technology backgrounds are offering academic assistance to students who wish to shape their careers in the best manner possible.
Of course, all this comes at a substantial price but when the returns are far reaching, no one’s complaining!
Take an area like economics for example. It is an integral part of any business and an important branch of social science that helps processes like analysis, consumption, distribution and production. It is being increasingly felt that apart from published study material and research papers, first-hand case studies and interaction with experts in the field who can ensure thorough understanding of the concepts provide a completely new dimension to this particular field of knowledge.
Here is where these online educational companies are able to provide quality help by roping in professionals and experts from different fields and helping students have easy access to them.
While looking for online help with examinations and home assignments, there are some simple tips that must be remembered.
i. Affordability – most of these assignment assistances are charged by the hour. Rates also vary from subject to subject
ii. Look for reliability of content and variety, like in-depth analyses, charts and practical inputs
iii. Decide if you wish to interact with written communication like email or hook up through live voice chat which will need special equipment like microphone and speaker headset – like a virtual classroom
iv. Live support may not be at hand 24×7 so time and frequency adjustments need to be made
