What are the benefits that I’ll have using online query resolving privileges?
There are times when you cannot get your queries resolved for following reasons like:-
Reluctant to ask your queries in the class.
Teacher asking you to come to his/her cabin to resolve your query but he/she is not available most of the time.
Teacher asks you to come later if he is busy or if he is not able to resolve your query on spot.
Your laziness comes in your way to further approach a teacher to get your queries resolved.
When you are studying at home/hostel, you have truckloads of queries but you can’t get them cleared immediately or you forget to ask them next day in college.
So, these online query resolving features would keep your fundamentals cleared if you keep posting your queries because an educator would have many resources to answer them with various links of video lectures, e-books and other articles or journals.
