The Advantages of Online Learning
Online learning has many advantages over the traditional face-to-face model of education for both educators and for learners. Here are some of the key advantages:
Advantages of Online Learning for Learners
Accessibility—Colleges, universities and training centers are not accessible to everyone. Online learning can be made available to learners in communities where there are no local colleges, which ends the need for driving two or more hours to the nearest college or university.
Time—Everyone agrees that time is a precious commodity that must be used wisely. Those who must work, learn and sustain social and family relationships feel stressed by time pressure and time famine. Online learners transform the time it would take to drive to a college to time learning and/or with family.
Advancement—Lifelong learning has become a necessity to employment, advancement and increased earning potential. Online learning offers access to an increased range of information and materials making advancement and education a possibility like never before.
Community—The online environment is a place of community and not one of isolation. Online learners experience a sense of community while they participate in online classes. Online communities develop as learners engage with others, sharing social and emotional experiences and learning.
Variety—Online learning offers a wide variety of approaches to learning that accommodate a wide variety of learners and learning styles.
Flexibility—Online learning can provide a flexible environment that accommodates the needs of its learning community.
Feedback—Online learning provides instant feedback to the learner.
Freedom—The online learning environment is unthreatening. Learners are less embarrassed about making mistakes and therefore classroom participation is greatly enhanced.
