Why Online Education Could Work For You
As the fall season sets in, education is on the minds of many Canadians. For those who are considering continuing their education, learning in the classroom isn’t always an option. Between work, family, and social commitments, there isn’t much free time. Learning must be flexible and dynamic. For many of us a popular alternative to in-class learning is distance education.
Distance education can help students meet their educational goals while giving them the freedom to continue their life:
1. It Is Convenient: Online learning allows for flexibility. Students can learn anywhere at any time on a computer or tablet with internet access. Whether it’s picking up an extra credit, improving high school grades or studying new subjects to help facilitate a career change, learning can easily fit into an individual’s schedule. TVO’s Independent Learning Centre (ILC), for example, offers accredited high school courses in a variety of subjects – from mathematics to the arts — helping adult students meet a variety of personal and professional goals.
2. It Is Affordable: With costs starting as low as $40 per course registration, picking up an extra credit doesn’t have to break the bank. Although education costs aren’t limited to tuition, online learning allows students to save on commuting, some learning materials (e.g. textbooks) and additional fees like childcare.
3. Students Can Learn At Their Own Pace: Every student has a preference for how they like to learn; solo studying allows you to cater your learning to your individual needs, whether it’s a half hour at a time or three solid hours. In addition, interacting with teachers and students can be intimidating. Online communication with other students and teachers allows for more time to collect your thoughts and formulate questions.
