Gone the days when we had to travel to Colleges or Universities to get a degree or to learn new things. The online education has paved a path to the field of education in a way that one might have never imagined. This had made access to education easier, faster and affordable. With the inclusion of education with technology, now students can use their Smartphones and Laptops to learn from the best online education colleges wherever and whenever they want. This has taken out the notion of time and place from the education.
It may seem to be easy and affordable now, but it was not the same during its inception. Even though the technology is new but the concept of online education has a history of more than 170 years. It originated in Great Britain in the form of correspondence course. Where it happened through emails; in which the instructor used to send the course materials and student’s used to send the completed assignments through the mail.
But, as the technology developed online education was able to overcome its biggest hurdle, i.e. the mail transit time. Now online education happens in real time where students and instructors interact and transfer information in real time just like any physical or so-called traditional education system.
Although it had so many advantages, even then people used to consider it as inferior to traditional colleges. Even the financial aid that people used to get for online education system changed recently. But, things are changing and it’s changing rapidly. According to the data of 2016, over six million enrol for one or more online courses, and more than 50% Universities offer their courses online. The course material and the education method provided in online colleges are often the same as that of traditional colleges. Thus, there are no perks in joining an online college.
If we talk about the pros of online colleges then it would be much more than that of traditional colleges in the recent scenario. As online colleges are effective, light on pockets, flexible with time, can take it as a part-time option where you can do an online course as well as do your daily job and provide the same quality as that of offline colleges. Even in some online colleges, they provide courses which are not available in their offline colleges.
Finding an online college is also easier than traditional colleges. For instance, you have planned to do a course in Nursing, and you want to find out the best online college for that. For that, you can just go to the search engine and type best online Nursing colleges and just be doing a little research on the colleges that you have got the search result. You can find the best college for nursing easily and that too by sitting in the comfort of your home.
That how things have changed easier it has become. Now if you want to learn something new, you can just take out your smartphone, tablet, or laptop and you can educate yourself. Things are just at the distance of your fingertips if you want to learn. It requires a lot of dedication and self-control to regularly take out time and effort without any external motivation factor. So, if you are planning to take an online course, just one thing you want to do is to keep your self-motivated as it has so many advantages but one of the main disadvantages of this online education is that you need to keep yourself motivated to complete the course as you can be the only person who can motivate yourself to complete the course. But, leaving that factor apart I would urge everyone to take at least one online course and try to complete it. As it, won’t take much effort and in turn, you will learn something new and you might not know when it might turn out to be useful.
