"Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time"
- Rabindranath Tagore
Education has gone through a great deal of revolution over the years. In the ancient years, in what can be termed as the cradle of education, it all started in an informal fashion where the old members of the societies such as grand parents, uncles and aunts would teach the young ones regarding family issues. Girls would be taught for instance how to cook, how to make good mothers and how to deal with biological attributes that changed in their bodies as they grew up.
As time went by, the face of education changed. Classes were set up education and students would attend a formal class on a scheduled basis. In most places, wearing of uniforms to schools was made mandatory so as to make students to concentrate on education and not on fashion, over who dresses better than the other school uniform.
In the contemporary days, education has taken a new turn. It has moved into what is known as online learning. This is where students are taught in virtual classes, such that they do not get to meet their tutors or classmates, but they communicate online. The students get assignments sent to them online and they complete and deliver them online within set deadlines. Students may also purchase books and learning material online from sites such as . There are other online sites that have been developed where students are in a position to post their assignments and extensive research is done for the students at a small fee hence the student is in a position to complete their assignments quickly but more accurately from the research material provided.
In machine learning, systems which employ offline learning do not change their approximation of the target function when the initial training phase has been completed. These systems are also typically examples of eager learning.
Music classroom are a type of formal instruction in playing a musical instrument or singing. Typically, a student taking music meets a music teacher for one-on-one training sessions ranging from 30 minutes to one hour in length over a period of weeks or years. For vocal session, teachers show students how to sit or stand and breathe, and how to position the head, chest, and mouth for good vocal tone. For instrument session, teachers show students how to sit or stand with the instrument, how to hold the instrument, and how to manipulate the fingers and other body parts to produce tones and sounds from the instrument.
Music teachers also assign technical exercises, musical pieces, and other activities to help the students improve their musical skills. While most music session are one-on-one, and for very basic instruction, some instruments are taught in large group session, such as piano and acoustic guitar. Private classroom session can also take place through live video chat using webcam and videotelephony online.
