Web 2.0 is truly interactive. The interactivity component of the Internet has fueled a fast growing shift towards learning online. Knowledge may be the most valuable asset in the world, and it used to be exclusively accessible to only the privileged. With Web 2.0, anyone can get on the Internet and soak in knowledge previously inaccessible to them. Web 2.0 has really transcended this idea because tools are no longer just readable. With web tools being increasingly interactive, learning is maximized through participation. Whether it is online schooling, an interactive math program, or blogs, these avenues for learning are available and affordable. This means that access to education and knowledge is now open to anyone at some level or another.
Learning is customizable and individually selected to cater to each person’s needs. Where in the past everyone was pushed down the same conveyor belt for education, we now have the ability to individualize our learning process. Perfect for the self-starter and intrinsically motivated, online tools allow you to explore new challenges, ideas, and concepts all from the comfort of our own home.
