    Learning never stops. Even if you’re away from school, it pays to keep in touch with the latest information and discoveries. Online teaching techniques could be a very useful way to help educate the world, especially those who can’t visit a proper classroom for whatever reason. Money, time, location, all barriers. Those are walls that online teaching can break through.
