Is Online Education a Boon or Curse in Today’s World

By Robin Mackenzie Subscribe to RSS | March 30th 2012 | Views:

Gone are the days when going to school was the only option to learn new things in life. Times have changed now. With the advent of online education, people gain access to diversified information that is available on the net. So, it comes as no surprise to know that these days’ people attain their degrees through online education. It comes in extremely handy when people don’t have enough time to spend in schools and educational institutions. The good thing about learning stuff online is that time is not a constraint anymore. It is extremely convenient as you can learn things anytime you want. You need not go to an educational institution to learn and gain knowledge.

This method of e-learning as it is called is not only very useful for normal people who spend time on the net. But it can also be accessed by business professionals and a lot of employees are getting trained for their jobs using this method very successfully. In fact it can be so handy that individual organizations can input account and other business details into the computer which can be accessed by employees from their homes. In fact, a lot of employees are able to even remotely be connected to the system from their office and get their issues sorted out in a simple way by various technicians. These days any job that you opt for involves training for a stipulated period of time. This can be successfully accomplished using online training methods. They are extremely simple and hassle free.

As most of the information is available on the net anytime, you will be able to rewind, pause and play a lot of videos. So there is sufficient space available for those who have a quest for learning new things. And besides, e-learning has also become a very common platform where you can learn and even share your knowledge with people who have similar tastes and liking for a common subject. In some cases there will be students who work part time in companies or study part time courses. Such students have ample time to spend and can very well opt for online education which is very simple and easy to understand. You can even give examinations online and there will be timed sessions where you will not be able to cheat or misuse the guidelines given. There are in fact so many people who have gained immense knowledge through such online education systems.

There is a saying that there are two sides to every coin. Similarly let’s analyze the pros and cons of online education which might be a great option for those who want to shape up their career using this system. One big problem with this system of education is that there will be no teachers to assist and ease your learning process. Even though you can rewind and play the videos over and over again as long as you want. You will never have anyone to answer your doubts regarding a particular topic. There will be no one to one session where a teacher usually offers suggestions and feedbacks. Another huge disadvantage is that you tend to delay your projects and will not send them on time. Also there will be no one to supervise and check on the students if they are really listening to what is being taught online.

There are basically no limits as far as the age of a student is concerned. It’s like an open door. Anyone with a hunger for knowledge can opt for online education from service providers such as Centurylink internet. Even though they are a bit expensive, there is no denying that they are a very important source of education for people of all ages.
