SQLearn e-courses are carried out virtually and thus its products and services are environmentally friendly by theirs nature.
According to statistics from the Open University in Britain, e-learning requires 90% less energy than traditional on-site classroom education, while CO2 emissions per trainee are reduced by 85%. The energy savings derive from fewer travel emissions, less paper usage and the ability to learn from home.
In order to save energy, reduce operational costs and reduce carbon footprints on the environment, education services can be provided using cloud technology. Cloud-based e-learning promotes a new era of learning, as it takes the advantage of hosting the e-learning applications on a cloud, reducing the construction and maintenance cost of the learning resources. SQLearn trusts the Amazon Web Services – AWS cloud infrastructure to host its e-learning applications. The results of a study by 451 Research shows that Amazon Web Services is 3.6 times more energy-efficient than the median of the surveyed U.S. enterprise data centers.
