Education has evolved, just like business. There has been a tough and on-going debate about whether education has been commercialised beyond what it should have been and whether this could harm the students in any unlikely manner or maybe even add to the value of the education imparted to the students. Not commenting on the debate, there is no doubt that students, are now facing different times vis-à-vis the students of yesteryears. This is because students today are confronting different stress and competition levels. There is competition to manage time with tuitions, with classes, with hobby classes and with basic schooling, homework and exams. Thus, probably the evolution of education is a necessary tool in such trying times. Notwithstanding, this has also brought along a spurt in online jobs in the said field. Take a look at some of the new ways of education.
