When you use nouns to make general statements, there are two patterns that have the same meaning:
- Use the + singular noun
- Use a plural or non-count noun with no article.
These sentences mean the same thing:
|Online learning requires the teacher’s assistance and involvement.||Online learning requires teachers’ assistance and involvement.|
|The computer has brought about huge changes in education.||Computers have brought about huge changes in education.|
|The hybrid class is more effective than the 100% online class.||Hybrid classes are more effective than 100% online classes.|
