Share This Post

The need for 24/7 access to educational resources has never been more critical. 

As institutions strive to meet the diverse needs of modern learners, technology plays a pivotal role in ensuring accessibility and convenience. 

This article explores the importance of round-the-clock access to educational resources and how Edular, our cutting-edge Student Relationship Management (SRM) solution enables institutions to meet this need.

The Growing Necessity of 24/7 Access to Educational Resources

The demand for round-the-clock access to educational resources is growing rapidly. 

The traditional model of education, confined to specific hours and physical locations, is no longer sufficient to meet the needs of modern learners.

According to a report by the eLearning Industry, 70% of students feel that they learn better when they can access educational resources at their convenience. 

This highlights the importance of providing 24/7 access to educational resources and support.

The rise of online learning has further emphasized this need. 

A survey by the Online Learning Consortium found that 85% of students believe that online learning is as good as or better than traditional classroom learning, largely due to the flexibility and accessibility it offers.

Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the importance of 24/7 access to educational resources. 

With schools and universities forced to shift to remote learning, the ability to access educational resources at any time has become a necessity rather than a luxury.

In the next section, we will explore how 24/7 access to educational resources impacts institutional appeal.

The Impact of 24/7 Access on Institutional Appeal

Institutions are constantly seeking ways to differentiate themselves and appeal to prospective students. One such way is by providing 24/7 access to educational resources.

A study published in PLOS ONE found that Open Educational Resources (OER), which provide round-the-clock access to learning materials, have been lauded for their ability to reduce student costs and improve equity in higher education. 

This suggests that institutions offering 24/7 access to educational resources can enhance their appeal by addressing key concerns of cost and equity.

Moreover, a systematic literature review published in Smart Learning Environments highlighted that accessibility within OER and practices for disabled learners is still in its infancy. 

This presents an opportunity for institutions to differentiate themselves by offering accessible educational resources round-the-clock.

Edular stands out in this regard. It offers 24/7 access for students and staff, among other future-proof features for 21st-century schools. 

Edular’s platform works smoothly on computers and smartphones, with all data being available through secure cloud servers. 

This not only enhances the learning experience for students but also increases the appeal of the institution, making it a preferred choice for tech-savvy learners.

Preparing for Future Challenges in Higher Education with 24/7 Access

Institutions must be agile and forward-thinking, ready to adapt to changes and meet the needs of modern learners. 

One of the key challenges is ensuring round-the-clock access to educational resources.

A report by the Babson Survey Research Group found that over 30% of higher education students are enrolled in at least one distance education course. This trend is expected to grow, emphasizing the need for institutions to provide 24/7 access to educational resources.

Moreover, a study by the Community College Research Center at Columbia University found that students who have online access to educational resources have higher rates of course completion and better academic outcomes. 

This underscores the importance of 24/7 access in enhancing student success and institutional performance.

Edular, developed by KlassApps, is well-equipped to meet this challenge. 

Its platform offers 24/7 access to educational resources, ensuring that students can learn at their own pace and on their schedule. 

This not only enhances the learning experience but also prepares institutions for the future of education.

The Role of AI-Driven Attendance Tracking in Ensuring 24/7 Access

The traditional methods of tracking attendance are becoming increasingly outdated. 

With the rise of online learning and the need for 24/7 access to educational resources, institutions are turning to more advanced solutions. 

One such solution is AI-driven attendance tracking. AI-driven attendance tracking uses artificial intelligence to monitor and record student attendance. This not only automates a traditionally time-consuming process but also provides a more accurate and reliable record of student attendance.

According to a report by Mordor Intelligence, the AI in education market is expected to reach USD 4.7 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 45% during the forecast period 2020 – 2025. 

This growth is driven by the increasing use of AI tools such as AI-driven attendance tracking.

Edular is at the forefront of this trend. 

Our platform includes an Attendance Tracking feature that ensures students are accountable for their learning, even in a remote learning environment. This feature not only enhances the learning experience but also ensures 24/7 access to educational resources.

Mobile, Web & Tablet Access for All: A Strength of Edular

According to a report by Statista, as of 2020, there were 3.5 billion smartphone users worldwide, highlighting the growing importance of mobile access in education.

Moreover, a study by the Pew Research Center found that 96% of Americans own a cellphone of some kind, and 81% own a smartphone. 

This underscores the need for educational platforms to be accessible on mobile devices. And the fact that learners are no longer confined to the four walls of a classroom. 

They want to learn at their own pace, at a time that suits them, and on a device of their choice. This is where Edular excels.

Edular is a mobile-first platform, designed to provide 24/7 access to educational resources on any device – be it a mobile, tablet, or web. This ensures that students can learn anytime, anywhere, enhancing their learning experience and academic outcomes.

Edular’s strength lies in its ability to provide seamless access on all devices.
