Pros : Meaning the Advantages Of the Online education
1 : ACCESS FROM ANYWHERE :
One of the main advantages of online education is that classes are available anywhere there is a computer and an Internet connection. This perk is especially important for individuals living in remote or rural areas who can’t relocate and don’t want to commute to school.
2 : TIME TO THINK :
Very important for online education. Here’s one has got to be one of my favorite things about online classes. When someone asks a question in a forum or sends me an email, I don’t need to reply instantly. I can spend 10 minutes thinking about my response and editing my paragraph before pressing ‘send’. The amazing thing about this is that students (and teachers) can contribute to conversations in an informed, thoughtful way. It creates a professional and – importantly – relaxed environment where interactions and communications tend to involve thoughtful commentary, not endless nonsense from the noisiest guy in the class. It also helps to allay any anxiety about being ‘put on the spot’ in class.
SAVING TIME :
If you’ve read any other posts on the pros of online learning, you’ll probably have read that you can save a lot of transit and wait time when you study online. Yes, that’s true.
You don’t have to drive to campus, search for a parking spot, pay for the parking spot, walk to class, wait for the professor to arrive, and so on.
LEARN AT YOUR OWN PACE :
Depending on the students caliber and grasping power the student can learn at his own pace. according to his suitable speed. Udemy provides some excellent courses .
So these are some of the important Pros of online education. but along with this comes some disadvantages also :
DISADVANTAGES OF ONLINE EDUCATION :
STRESSES: Kids are stresses to the core .Kids who are always told to stay away from screens. Suddenly kids are put in front of the screens for 4-5 hours a day. There are lot of stress relief yoga available for kids on youtube .
Storyhive also gives good videos for kids and parents . so go ahead and do it with your kids .
Self control and discipline is hampered . Kids are not following the rules and timings of getting up ,getting ready for school .
They just get up and sit in front of the computer . They turn off the video and audio of the session and do what ever they want.
ODD STUDYING HOURS : Any time kids want to study. Late night study is difficult to keep a trac of what they are doing .
PERFECT EXCUSE :
They sit with the phone for the whole day . Cant track if they are studying or playing online games. Whenever we ask them they say that they are studying. This is the difficulty each and every parent is facing.
MISSING FRIENDS :
We all are missing friends and colleges with whom we are use to being with . Kids are missing interaction with their friends and classmates .
SO even after the various Pros and Cons we have to live with the current situation .
