As business operations run remotely across the globe and citizens practice social distancing due to the novel coronavirus, we should all utilize our valuable time wisely and on activities that can be beneficial for us in the future. This is a good opportunity to do all the tasks that we usually postpone for later. Along with spending time at home with our loved ones, what we must be given a high priority is learning and self-development.

There has been a significant increase in the use of digital means to deliver learning content. Organisations and individuals should make use of technology by taking courses online and collaborating on virtual platforms.

Many learning communities and platforms have recognized that the current situation may act as a catalyst to the transition from in-person to digital learning and are looking to help their customers by offering reduced or complimentary services.

Learning doesn’t and mustn't stop when travel is curtailed.
