Real To Virtual

Due to the global pandemic, there is a shift towards Digital. Worldwide events, once attracting gatherings of thousands, are either being canceled or have gone virtual. This impact is substantially felt in the learning sector, with most of the universities sending their students home.

Digital learning is often viewed as a secondary option. With the new realities upon us, this is about to change.

Going Digital: Benefits

  • Online training has certain toolsets of evaluation, recording, and sophisticated analysis of attendance, feedback, and even emotions, which was never possible in an actual classroom.
  • Course materials can be downloaded instantly, as opposed to printing and shipping books every semester, reducing costs and environmental impact. The content is also updated easily and can be scaled at minimal costs.
  • As information is real-time, many complex, time-sensitive models of learning can be developed, the speed of which could never be a reality in traditional methods of learning.

Convergence

A convergence of virtual models with physical aspects of learning can help us with innovative solutions to existing problems in numerous sectors. 

Technology is now poised to provide better healthcare, education, and other services to everyone in an affordable and ultra-efficient system.

Education vs training

Until two decades ago, the general goal of colleges was for academic pursuits and teaching individuals to become more well-rounded. The general thought was that colleges were not vocational institutions.

Now, and possibly in the future, colleges will have to focus more on training and change their curriculum to meet the demands of employers.

Alternatives 

A four-year college education remains the best choice for those who can get admitted to a selective university. But for everyone else, an alternative path might be the best way to go.

In the future, one training path will be company-sponsored apprenticeship programs to cover the skills missing between the secondary system and what employers are looking for.

Telemedicine and telehealth

Telemedicine and telehealth

Telemedicine and telehealth involve remote-health-care technologies and services, known as "virtual care."

While virtual care played some role in the health-care industry, 2020 le...

Virtual healthcare recognized

  • Telemedicine can refer to the setup that allows workers in a large hospital to assist in emergency procedures from a distant support structure.
  • Telehealth uses virtual interactions between individual doctors and patients. You may have a bad sore throat and download the telehealth app, where you will be connected to a physician who can examine you and prescribe medicine.

Fifty to seventy percent of visits to the doctor's office could be replaced by remote monitoring and checkups.

Potential disadvantages of virtual health care

Telemedicine has been a hard sell in some areas.

  • Many rural clinics and community hospitals fear that their already inadequate medical staffing and the revenues generated from on-site procedures will be further diminished by remote medicine.
  • Old and poor patients who may need care the most can't afford smartphones or broadband connectivity.
  • Until recently, many people were unaware that the service existed, while others didn't trust an anonymous doctor.
  • Many people want to be in the physical presence of their physicians, believing the quality of virtual care is inferior.
