Education Suited Just For You

Aug 17, 2007
Colleges and universities worldwide are offering an unprecedented number of online courses for students. All it takes is a little motivation and your time, and you can get an online education. Be on the lookout for scams too, as in very rare cases these exist. This article covers the benefits of getting your education online and why you might consider it over a traditional education.

1. Save Money On Bus Fare Or Gas

Many of us are at our best at different times of day. Instead of spending the early hours of the morning in transit to school, you could do your laundry, spend time with the kids, or break open the studying books and make sure you get better marks in school! Plus you can even stay in your pajamas all day if you prefer. On those rainy horrible winder days, it's so nice not to have to brave the weather and the traffic driving to school.

2. Avoid Schedule Conflicts

Online learning is a favorite of parents and people with jobs. It allows them to get continuing education despite the fact that they have very demanding schedules. You will never have to worry about office hours again - if you have a question, simply email your instructor and they will usually get back to you within a few hours.

3. Skip Material You Already Know

- Accommodates multiple learning styles and mediums
- Fosters greater student interaction and collaboration
- Students vastly prefer online learning
- Skip over material you already know and focus on topics youd like to learn

4. Get Your Credentials Faster

Online learning will allow you to earn your degree faster than traditional courses. Most traditional courses are only taught weekly, but when you work according to your own schedule, you could do a class every day if you really wanted to, shaving years off of your degree and allowing you to use your degree to get a job much faster. There are hardly ever limits to how many students can join an online course - unlike traditional classes.

5. Cheap

The cost of online learning is constantly going down and there are even some free courses available. Interesting materials such as video lectures, taped lectures, and such, may be mailed to you. You also won't have to pay for all of the associated costs of going to university - childcare fees, residence on campus, parking, and especially transit fees.
