Do I rather go for online courses of just continue with my face to face classes?
If you’re reading this right now, you might be battling with the decision of taking a course or bagging a degree online instead of gong through the traditional face to face classroom system/On-Campus Program.
Well, this is aimed at serving as an eye opener to you on the huge benefits that comes with studying online.
If you have gotten used to the face to face system of learning, it might be seemingly difficult for you to adapt to this system of online learning and it also might seem more difficult for those who are not in the techy line but that notwithstanding, the system is very is to adapt to.
Here are some Benefits of studying online:
Career advancement and hobbies:
Studying online gives you more flexibility. You can work and fit your work schedule (and your hobbies) around your coursework more easily; even more so if you are taking an online class where you don’t have to log in at a specific time for a live session but you can study and interact with your instructor and your fellow classmates at your own pace through platforms like the discussion forum.
In a survey conducted by The Learning House, 44% of online students reported improvements in their employment standing, for example by obtaining a full-time job within 12 months of graduation, and 45% reported a salary increase.
By the time you finish your online course, you will have gained more work experience and learned new skills that will help you advance in your career!
Flexible schedule and environment
By studying online, you choose your own learning environment that works best for your needs: be it your bedroom, your study, the café across the street, or your local gym, listening to your instructor’s lecture podcast as you run on the treadmill. Isn’t that awesome?
Taking an online course also means that you don’t have to commute to class, which means less time spent on the bus and more study time sitting on your couch, the sound of a crackling fireplace in the background. You no longer have to worry about driving in the snowstorm and missing an important class!
Lower costs and debts
Studying online means that you pay the tuition fee, possibly book supplies, an online application fee, and few other items. You don’t, however, incur the costs of housing and transportation, which translates to lower debts and more savings.
Self-discipline and responsibility
Who says that having to be more self-disciplined is a disadvantage? It is true that studying online requires more self-motivation and time-management skills, because you will spend a lot of time on your own without someone physically close to keep you focused on deadlines. Look at it this way: your online course will not only teach you geology or poetry, it will also help you become more self-motivated, a trait that will make you stand out in the workplace and beyond. It will look great on your résumé.
More choice of course
Let’s face it, when thinking about what to study, besides for interest and career opportunities, where to study is also a deciding factor. This may limit the choice of subjects or courses to take. Studying online at your own convenience allows you to no longer worry about class location when choosing what to learn next. By taking an online course, you can really focus on the subject you are interested in and choose from the variety of online courses and programs.
Are Online Classes Easier Than Traditional On-Campus Programs?
When weighing the pros and cons of online classes, students can take comfort in the solid education virtual/online learning delivers. Lectures and assignments are key factors in both the online and On-Campus trainings and they both have specific timeframes but unlike the case of the on-campus program, you stand better chances of making more research and also having access to diverse research platforms at your convenience while taking your course online which makes it easier for you than when you are given the same task on Campus.
The convenience that comes with studying online is also a huge prove of it being easier compared to the transit struggles and other stress you will go through while in the process of the On-Campus program.
You might want to ask if you will be getting equivalent certification as those running the On-Campus programs, the bug answer to that is “YES”
Every online platform is a subordinate body of a school or schools who run On-Campus Programs and as such, whatever certification students on campus will be getting for equivalent courses done online will be the same.
