Online education came into existence in the early 2000s but the concept of over the air and around the world teaching classes is older. It can be said that with the proper full fledge public integration of the internet this new technique of teaching finally became mainstream. Online education has become an integral part of the education system and many leading colleges and universities have begun to make use of this new method and have introduced entire degree and diploma courses that can be learned over the internet under the guidance of qualified teachers and have access to a vast amount of information and academic material that can further enhance their learning experience. Among the advantages of this method of teaching is that a student is free of the distractions of a classroom and the hurdles of traveling to an institute.
Muslims around the have also started to make use of this new technique and have established virtual institutes where they offer all kinds of courses regarding the religion of Islam and most even offer an Arabic learning course that is highly advised for any person who wishes to learn the Quran. An online Quran academy is not limited to Muslims only however especially those that offer an Arabic learning course, for any Non-Muslim who desires to learn about Islam or wishes to learn the Arabic language that has become one of the top spoken and most sought after languages in the world. An online Quran academy works exactly as a physical Islamic center or institute does and some might say that the experience of learning about Islam through an online school is much more deeper and satisfying primarily because of the less distractions and the choice of the student to learn at their own pace and timings under the guidance of a qualified scholar who can answer any type of queries that a person might have regarding the religion.
