Environmental benefits of using SKYLECT
How E-learning benefits the environment:
Online learning reduces paper waste and saves trees
When learning virtually, students primarily get readings and class information electronically. All learning resources are assessed and stored online. Deforestation is a serious global issue. According to the National Wildlife Foundation, 60 percent of school waste is paper. One ton of paper waste is equal to 16 large trees. Recycling 10 tons of paper is equal to the use of up to 100 barrels of crude oil. The traditional education system notoriously over-uses “busy work,” which is a chronic source of paper waste. Online learning even reduces the energy and resources used to recycle paper. Paper manufacturing is the 3rd largest user of fossil fuels worldwide. If the US cut office paper use by just 10%, it would prevent the emission of 1.6 million tons of greenhouse gasses—the equivalent of taking 280,000 cars off the road.
Online learning reduces emissions from transportation/traveling
With SKYLECT, the immersive education network, you can minimize the need for travel and reduce your carbon footprint. Taking virtual classes enables students to stay at home and learn with comfort while avoiding wear-and-tear on vehicles and local roads. In addition, students can avoid the need to drive cars or take public transits to the place of study, which can help reduce fossil fuel use and lessen detrimental effects on the environment. By eliminating the need for daily commutes, students and educators can reduce carbon footprints and minimize impacts on the Earth.
