students are spectacle about taking online
learning courses. To me, it proves to be a great alternative. One
of the great advantages is that students have the chance to study in their own
time. It is a great way to study many fields and to boost the level of
self-motivation. I’m a prime example of why e-learning is an advantage. I am
a student that works during the day, manages a 1-year-old son and spouse. E-learning
can be overwhelming when juggling everything else in your life but it isn’t impossible.
The most important thing is time management. If you have small children, you
should definitely take advantage of nap time and times when you’re free. Being
flexible makes e-learning convenient. Online
learning is so effective because students can finish their homework
assignments quickly, and there is more time left for leisure activities or for
going to work. Everything will get done early or on time so that you don’t fall
behind. E-learning makes it possible for nearly anyone to go back to school. One
of the disadvantages of e-learning in a student’s perspective is that their not
computer literate. Students are used to depending on a teacher to teach them
every subject. Some students absolutely need an educator to learn successfully.
Believe or not, for some people, the online class makes it easier to
procrastinate. There is no one to remind or hound you about completing class
assignments. You must be responsible for your own learning.
A teacher can immediately help you with your problems and can
get to the core of the problem. If the classroom environment is what you
love most about learning, you may want to take a step back and reconsider e-learning.
You’ll likely get some interaction on chat rooms, discussion boards and through
email, but the experience will be quite different than traditional courses. Students may feel isolated from their
professor and classmates. As a teacher, I would feel terrible knowing that one
my students are failing. It means that the online structures aren’t fit for
their life for them to manage their assignments. In a teacher perspective, one
of the good advantages of e-learning can be taught different learning styles. It
can help develop knowledge of the internet and computer skills. Educators want
students to join discussions and provide a response to a post. By doing so,
they get a wider range of perspectives. While traditional classrooms let students
gain support and personal relationships with teachers, online courses only
offer online. On the plus side of things, online
courses save a great amount of money; fewer teachers, fewer books and no money
to spend on a room to educate. For some teachers, a great advantage is
being able to put up assignments for your students to complete ahead of time
and allowing them to work on it before its actually due.
