What are the advantages of online education?

Monday January 5, 2009

The advantages of online education
Everything in life has it good and its bad side. So do the online degree programs. Please do not regard the following paragraphs as an attempt to persuade you that the online degree programs are better or worse than the traditional ones. Our aim is to present you with the different interpretations of the differences between the online and campus degree programs, which were discussed in the previous lesson.
Online degree programs can be accessed from anywhere on the Earth, at any time and can take as much time as you need. In this busy world, where we value our freedom of movement and our spare time very highly, this is definitely the advantage. 
Online degrees are more affordable than the campus ones.

The classes are flexible and students can control their learning environment, moving through courses at their own pace. The accessibility of online degree courses is unprecedented, and at the same time you do not have to travel anywhere, you do not have to pay the rent and most importantly - you do not have to change your life in any way  (be away from your family and friends for example, or to miss your favorite restaurant, or football team).

Time for your family

No one does even have to know that you are studying - you do not have to take absence from work, or to explain to your friends where you go every morning/evening - everything happens in the privacy of your home (or any computer with the Internet connection)
You do not have to change your lifestyle.

There are a lot of programs to choose from. We have witnessed that the number of online degree programs has increased rapidly in the last few years. Many reputable universities now offer their programs online and the cost of those programs is usually lower  than the corresponding campus ones. The online learning methods have improved very much in the recent period and therefore the quality of the knowledge the graduates get has increased. Therefore, the employers now value online degree as much as the traditional ones.


Thank you.
