Online classes have managed to address a lot of problems faced by conventional learning platforms. They offer an alternative for issues like budget cuts, higher tuition fee, course shortage, etc. And that is why six million students signed up for an online course last year. There are several other reasons why students prefer to sign up for an online course. We list some for you:
They offer flexibility:
Of course, online courses allow you to study from anywhere and at any time. But they are not as flexible as you would like to believe. For example, not all courses are self-paced, i.e. student driven. And even if they are so, you cannot take your own time to complete the assignments or the course itself. There are set deadlines before which you are expected to complete the course. But yes, you don’t have to worry about attending college every day. You may complete assignments while traveling to and from work or take a test from a café.
They are affordable:
Online courses aren’t affordable in the sense that you can save on tuition fee, but there are no commuting costs or accommodation expenses involved. You don’t have to worry about buying textbooks most of the time either. Most online courses offer e-books and other study material at a far lesser cost than print textbooks.
You can transfer credits:
It’s a common myth that online courses cannot be transferred. Not many know that students can attend online summer class from an accredited college and get their credits transferred to their primary college.
But online courses are not easy. They require time and commitment. If you are starved of time or energy, we can help! Call us to ask, “Can you take my online class for me?”
