Why Online Learning?

June 3rd, 2008 by Dr. Martha Angulo

Online education has proven to be an effective alternative to traditional teaching/learning methods. Technology is changing the very purpose of learning. Internet-connected computers are prevalent in homes and schools today.

Regardless of background, students rely on technology as an essential and preferred tool in every aspect of their lives. These technology-wise students want to expand their active online lives to learning activities. Online learning has the potential to:

  • Provide accredited instructional programs to large groups of students at a fraction of the cost of traditional learning programs.
  • Empower learners to take more control over their own learning.
  • Provide learning opportunities for a broad range of students who have varied learning styles and require more flexible schedules.

Technology opens the world’s resources to all students. The Internet breaks down time and place as organizing principles for education, giving programs, like e-Tutor, a foothold. Students report that online education has characteristics their teachers do not offer. Online learning is always available. The programs have a “patient” character and are nonjudgmental. They allow students to be anonymous and allow student to do many things at the same time.

    Best Institute
    Getting quality teaching with an online degree means that you need to research each institute carefully. Talk to other students, if possible. Look at several schools offering both traditional programs and online degree programs. It doesn?t hurt to check out class size either. Try to find class sizes that are small and thus offer you the possibility of individual attention. Check into how the institute can help you……………

    Online learning is a great way for students to learn. Most of the students that I work with are open to online tutoring and it is best to offer a FREE online tutoring session. That way, students can try it out and hopefully like it.
