Computer Technology and Improving Education for Career Purposes
Computer programming correlates much with education in the sense that education is aimed at solving the various problems that we face. For instance, a student studying engineering must to know of various ways that one can program as well as built tools of mass action; which will eventually reduce the work load of humans.
In programming, one tries to have a clear as well as logical understanding of a problem. After analyzing it, one needs to come up with a plausible solution; which will address the problem. In essence, one must have a clear insight of a problem. Along with its solution in order to code it. The best part of programming is that it makes works easier because the repetitive procedures as well as methods are already coded to bring the desired results by simply keying the inputs needed. And clicking on action button to get the results.
There has been an enormous contribution of computer technology in our education system
Today there are many aspects of education that solely rely on computer technology. I enrolled for my master’s degree in 2012. I was a bit confused on how I was supposed to handle my studies given that my workplace was miles away from the college where I had enrolled for my master’s program. However, I had a lot of concerns on how I would continue working and still be in class. I knew it would be hectic. But I had resolved to sacrifice all that I could for my masters degree education; that meant even quitting my job if need be.
Accessing Computer Technology Learning Tools and Materials
Fortunately, that was never the case; thanks to the computer engineers who made it possible for any person to access learning materials and tools anywhere without much hassle. I really needed the right material to prepare for my master’s program. I was so glad to realize that I could access it all through the internet.
Nonetheless, the college that I was studying in had an awesome website; where I could access a lot of educational material; as well as other tools like emails enable me to communicate effectively with my instructors whenever there was need.
It’s true that distance learning can at times become a challenge. But through computer technology programmed tools; like Adobe Connect and Blackboard; I was able to communicate with the instructors through conferencing remotely. The flexibility of these tools as well as others gave me the opportunity to choose the best time to access what the professors were teaching. Also, to help me prepare adequately to pursue my degree successfully.
Moreover, I was also able to view and do my assignment online; and view videos of any educational material that had been taught in class to those students present. Simply, I was learning just like all other students though remotely. If there was any need for clarification; my instructors were just a click away. They helped me in all what that I needed to learn.
Coding Software to Help in Learning Computer Technology
Unfortunately, I was pursuing a master’s in finance and as it may occur to you, a field like this whose foundation is built on numerical principles can be challenging if one is learning entirely from text narratives. For a field like this, there is need for students to clearly see and know how to interpret the numerical formulas and details that entail the concepts that they were studying.
Though I was quiet formidable in what I was studying, I realized there were colleagues like me studying remotely. But had problems because they needed a step-by-step design; which could help in demonstrating how the numerical problems were solved. Most of the online videos never covered in detail about the processes & procedures used; thus most students were left half-baked.
The need to solve such problems triggered my desire to learn programming
However, I did learn coding in my endeavors to program software; which would show how the various formulas learnt were applied. Along with the interpretation of the numerical figures used while in the long run illustrating the practical use of the interpreted numbers.
Nonetheless, I may not have been at a position to help the online students in my class; whom I was networking with. But when I complete the program; which is aimed at helping other students; I believe that I will be at a position of providing a learning platform where interactive use as well as application of numerical studies can be easily learnt.
