Covid-19 has changed the world significantly. Many academic institutions have switched to having their courses 100% online or are using a hybrid classroom model. However, some students prefer learning from written documents rather than watching and re-watching the course materials on video screens. That’s why many institutions are investing in academic transcription services that can help them convert their audio and video content into high-quality written notes.

5 Ways Academic Translation Services Can Enhance Learning Outcomes:

1. Support for the Students Whose Native Language Is Not English

eLearning has allowed students to access courses from vast distances. There are often such students whose primary learning language is not English. They could find it difficult to follow the communication speed in the audio and video contents and often face challenges in understanding the accents.

These students can benefit from the academic translation services as they can learn at their own pace from written content.

2. Transcription Supports Different Learning Styles

Different students have different learning styles, and most of them naturally find learning easier from written notes. Transcribed content is a great way for them to learn.

3. Improvement in Lecture Learning

Students often take notes while the professor lectures in class. But that can prevent them from asking questions during class hours, even if they have doubts and questions popping up in their minds. When they have the transcribed notes, they can concentrate on the lecture.

4. Internet Issues Are a Thing of the Past for eLearning Courses

Often, the internet issues and the downloading speed create trouble for the students attending online lectures. When they have the help of the transcribed lectures, poor internet connections will not stop the students from learning and attending online classes. They can download the transcribed document, which does not take a lot of internet data, and learn from it later.

5. Group Discussion Recording

Discussion between the students and professors is critical to understanding concepts and performing better in class. Recording the group discussion and getting it transcribed can enable the students to contribute to the discussion without the fear of missing out on taking notes for the same.
