The current difficulties facing traditional universities and colleges – including expensive tuition fees, course shortages and budget cuts – have prompted students to search for alternatives. Today’s world has become very demanding and students, in order to be encouraged to learn, need something that allows them to study at their convenience. One of the most popular alternatives is online classes. What gives it advantage over traditional learning?
- Online classes provides learners with greater flexibility varying learning styles and use different technologies.
- Online classes may encourage participation from students who may not actively participate in traditional classroom settings; instructors who teach online also have a wealth of technology at their fingertips to make classes more interesting and engaging.
- Students enjoy the flexibility and convenience of the medium. They learn from the comfort of their own homes and do not need to be at a specific place at a specific time to study.
- Diverse Learning Experiences: It gives an opportunity and experience to connect with teachers from different disciplines, backgrounds and cultures.
