5 Advantages Of Online Learning: Education Without Leaving Home
Although online education has its limitations, there are several advantages of online learning that explain why e-Learning may be the greatest revolution in today’s education. Here are 5 of them.
Traditional Education And Advantages Of Online Learning
There are several problems with the traditional system of education. First of all, you need to pay thousands of Rands per term to attend a prestigious college or university. With all those budget cuts, busy classrooms, and course shortages, you won’t always get the chance to study exactly what you want.
It’s no wonder why millions of students from all around the world opt for online qualification programs or take at least one qualification through an online platform. Online learning has to be the greatest revolution in contemporary education. It made a huge change in the system and opened great opportunities for everyone who wants to learn something.
Nevertheless, online education is still related to stereotypes. People often think that online students are not smart enough for a traditional college or university, they are lazy, and they don’t get “real” degrees. These claims discourage many people from taking online courses, so they get stuck in the traditional educational system that consumes a huge deal of money, nerves, and years of their lives. No to speak of time on our busy highways and the chance of an accident.
Allow us to explain why online learning is more awesome than you think. We have 5 advantages of online learning that will make you reconsider your attitude towards this type of education.
Advantages of Online Learning
1. You can learn whatever you want!
You can pick the program of your dreams in traditional education, too, but that would involve traveling away from home, living in a completely unknown city, and struggling in an extremely competitive learning environment. With online education, you can take any program or course present in traditional universities.
Forget about attending classes for hours, sitting in an uncomfortable chair, and suffering from back pain by the end of the day. You will not be bound to physical class session when you opt for online education. All lectures and needed materials are provided via online platforms, so you’ll easily access them from the comfort of your home. You will not take public transport to get to campus, you won’t have to spend money on petrol for your car, you won’t have to get up early to get dressed for class… the list of conveniences goes on and on.
Comfort is a strong advantage, but it can go both ways. You mustn’t allow yourself to get too comfortable when studying from your home or office, so it would be best to abandon the couch or luxury chair for few hours a day and set up an inspirational studying environment in your home or office. All you need is a large desk and a nice, comfortable chair.
3. Online courses look great on a resume.
It doesn’t matter where your career stands at this moment; an online program will always look good on your resume. It will show potential employers that you’re committed to learning and you’re eager to obtain more knowledge and new skills. Hiring managers don’t see online qualification and degrees as inferior to traditional ones. A qualification or degree is a national certificate or degree obtained against the same SAQA qualification framework. If you obtain an online qualification or degree from a prestigious college or university, you’ll boost your career with the speed of light. You will certainly become a better candidate for a job promotion, and your resume will look much better when you apply for new positions.
4. Self-paced learning.
When you start browsing through interesting online courses and programs, you’ll notice the Self-Paced label on most of them. What does this mean? Self-paced learning means that the students can start completing the targets at any time, and he can arrange a learning schedule that meets his individual needs. When you enroll in a traditional college program, you’ll have to forget about work, hobbies, and even family. In such setting, studying has to be a priority. That’s why many single parents and people who work decide to forget all about their dreams to get a higher degree.
A self-paced system enables them to make progress with rhythm that suits them. This type of system does not require attending live sessions; you can access the materials at any time that works for you (24/7). If you have to work or take care of your home and children during the day, you can study at night. That’s an advantage the traditional educational system cannot beat.
5. Lower costs.
The fact that online programs are cheaper when compared to the ones held in a traditional campus setting is enough to convince you to consider them. The average tuition for online courses depends on multiple factors, so it varies from one program to another. If, for example, you want to enroll in the National Certificate for Wealth Management: NQF5, the class room option will cost R3000-R5000 more per semester. The reason for this is that facilitators need to be paid, venues must be hired or maintained, and it will always depend on numbers to make it viable. With online learning all these costs fall away.
We saved the best part for last: many online courses are completely free of charge. Our Top 10 Soft Skills you need, we offer for free to all our registered students. We have also added RE1 and RE5 Mock exams for FREE. For our National Certificate in Wealth Management students, we have also added the HP10Bii+ Calculator emulator and workshop for FREE, Free courses don’t usually come with certificate of completion, but they are still more than useful for anyone who wants to learn from prestigious educators. However all our Soft Skills Workshops comes with an online certificate.
Online Education Is Totally Worth The Effort
Online qualifications, courses and degree programs are more convenient and cheaper than their counterparts in traditional education. Those are the two main advantages of online learning that lead many students to opt for online platforms when they want to earn a degree, diploma or certificate.
The best thing about online learning is that you can learn in a relaxed manner even if you don’t want to get certified. You only need passion for learning and a quick online search that will take you to the right course. From that point on, you will be the master of your own education.
