In recent times, online learning seems to be increasingly practiced. Many conventional universities started out to proportion their publications online without spending a dime. It represents an easy and comfortable approach to acquire knowledge in almost each area, from law and accounting to human sciences, together with psychology and sociology or history.
According to Cobb, online learning is an important tendency in education. Online learning is a great alternative to traditional universities, especially for people who cannot afford the time and money to take real courses. There have some advantages and disadvantages of online learning.
The advantage of online learning students can work from any location and any time so it saves your time. Online courses can be accessed anywhere with an internet connection. Online classes students set their own schedules, they can adjust their schedules and easily make up the missed class. You could take a class while sipping coffee in your favorite café, in your work office during a break, or even in bed on a lazy Sunday. According to Ally, students can also access information easily and complete online programs from wherever they are, such as at the workplace, through online learning
Another advantage of online learning is less expensive than traditional learning. For online learning, there are no travel expenses and no need to rent out a physical classroom. In 2010, studies found that student who educated themselves through online college courses where able to save roughly $14,000 on college tuition costs. This is possible through online education’s accelerated program and because educational institutions are able to purchase an online program and adjust it yearly for each course and continue to pay a professor to educate students. Through conventional methods, a college needs to pay the overhead costs of a classroom, including updates in utilities as well as a professor and updated computer programs. So I think online learning is better than traditional learning.
On the other hand, the disadvantage of online learning, only a small group a person can develop properly. At school, students learn how to make friends, be patient, get rid of disappointment, And especially to compete. Competition among generations can be very encouraging and learners will only benefit from it. Online learning cannot offer human interaction.
For the second disadvantage of online education is the lack of social interaction that occurs between students taking a course together. While students may be discussing the class or various topics online through the discussion board or online chat room, Students don't have the opportunity to really speak to his classmate’s and get to know them.
In conclusion, online learning should be seen as a compliment and extension of classical forms of learning. No longer even the best online direction can fully replace the contact with a teacher, or the human relationships that broaden in a collection. So, traditional classes shouldn’t be replaced with online learning.
