Learning and working online has endless benefits. Learners do not only participate in online courses at their convenience but also learn at their own pace.
Doing your work online, with the help of Kami, does not require you to move or travel across the world just to study a particular subject. You have access to a plethora of information right at your fingertips.
So, no matter where you live, whether you are on a vacation or unable to go to school due to weather conditions, all you need is an internet access and Kami – and you’re off to study anything you want.
Online Learning is Environmentally Friendly
While you participate in e-learning, you benefit not only yourself but also the environment. Studying online is better for the planet, Earth, in the following ways:
Deforestation is one of the biggest global issues that we’ve been facing. Many companies and universities are beginning to embrace digital learning, an indication that, at least, most of the training sessions are now web-based. Curriculum, textbooks, and assignments can all be accessed digitally; thus, it reduces the use of paper, which is better for the environment.
Less carbon footprint
Since you work or study from home, you don’t have an office or university to go to daily. You skip the daily commute, which translates to lesser greenhouse gas emissions since you don’t have to drive five days a week. You not only get to save money on the cost of gasoline, but you’re able to help the environment as well.
Online education cuts the negative impact of transportation on the environment. You also get to learn from the comfort of your home while avoiding wear and tear on your vehicle and the streets you pass by to and from the university.
Lower demand for raw goods
Construction of buildings for educational institutions and establishments requires the use of building materials like wood, metal, and plastic. Working online diminishes the demand for these raw materials since you don’t have an actual school or workplace to go to, which helps the environment.
Some establishments and universities are open more than 8 hours a day. Some are open 24/7. This means so much energy is consumed since lights are turned on; computers are powered on; and elevators, air conditioning, and other electronic gadgets are in use. Electricity is constantly running, which means more energy is wasted. Online learners and workers help by using way lesser energy.
Kami is Pro-Environment
Kami believes that technological advancement and constant innovation in the workplace and learning institutions can be achieved without destroying the environment.
By learning and working online with Kami, you can do your part in helping the environment. Just by staying at home while doing your job or studying, your carbon footprint and impact on the environment are reduced.
It’s also a great way for companies, whether local or global, to fulfill their corporate social responsibility (CSR) while saving the company’s money and resources at the same time.
