Covid-19 outbreak leads to e-learning demand increase

Due to the current outbreak of the virus Covid-19, there has been a drastic increase in the thirst for knowledge – particularly online. E-learning is flying off the electronic shelves, and into the hands of those eager to learn. With children being homeschooled and work being done from home, the rapid change to everyday life has left some of us wanting. Thankfully, the gap in our routine is being filled by e-learning, a healthy way for us to keep our minds fit, making sure to exercise them as well as our bodies.

Companies that provide e-learning, such as Pearson, are reporting that the amount of people trying to gain access to their product has “quadrupled”, becoming four-times as active as it was before the lockdown began.

With many countries struggling with their new ‘normal’, a host of people are finding themselves turning to online shopping, or watching more of the television they love. There are some who are spending their time being productive by either focusing on doing the odd jobs around the house they never had the time to before, or turning their efforts to the online education provided.

Businesses are giving away free samples, such as ourselves with our free Phishing package, in the hopes it will encourage more people to spend this difficult time doing something beneficial to themselves, their business, or their family. There is no age-limit on learning.

Stay safe.

Supporting UK Businesses during COVID-19

Due to the havoc caused in this worldwide pandemic, we understand that certain organisations may struggle to train their staff. However, Periquest would like to offer our hosting services for free in this trying time. Local businesses in the Lancashire area are more than welcome to use Periquest servers to deliver online training to their staff. We also extend this offer to organisations and businesses beyond the country and around the country.

In the midst of this virus, learning doesn’t have to take a back-burner. With many of us self-isolating, now may be as good a time as any to throw ourselves into education. It’s still important to keep learning in the face of adversity.

Already, you can see people in local communities offering their services for the elderly and disabled to make life easier for them during this unrest. Periquest would like to do our part for the economy and small businesses: whoever is in need of it.

Please, feel free to email community@periquest.co.uk to ask any questions you may have, or comment below. We look forward to banding together, and supporting one another as best we can.

Remember to wash your hands for at least twenty-seconds (singing Happy Birthday twice) regularly throughout the day. Stay safe.
