|Summary||In today’s e-commerce era, more than ever, we need to equip our students to be independent on-line learners. In this article, we will look into the use of online education as a means of understanding the emerging educational paradigm (from a teacher to a student-focus paradigm). Specifically, the focus is on the secondary school system in which the aim is to comprehend and explore the reasons behind the emerging trend, the flaws in the existing schooling system, the characteristics and effects of our proposed paradigm. Finally, we conclude that the proposed educational paradigm whereby online education is provided to supplement the current traditional classroom based teaching could become a reality sooner than expected.|
