How do global virtual internships benefit your study skills?

Study International | May 07, 2019

Long gone are the days of traditional office settings and tiring work commutes to work, largely due to the brilliance of widespread digital advancements.Through virtual work environments and speedy internet connections, interns can now gain vital work experience without having to move an inch from their home or university.This may sound strange at first, and you may question the validity of the skills you earn from an online internship, but that’s the way our future could be heading…Asking you to imagine you’re a student in the year 2030, writer Ishita Gupta believes schools will be completely different from the education your parents remember.“Only attending school four days a week, most of your time is spent [in] outdoor learning spaces. With the help of Blended E-learning, you can study on your own, focusing time on strategic topics through a plan personalised for you. Your AI learning assistant grades and offers feedback on your assignments, guiding you through difficult problems step by step, reteaching you concepts from scratch if necessary,” Ishita explains.
