ONLINE vs OFFLINE

Hi readers,

Recently I opted for an online class for a subject and comparing with offline I was a bit uncomfortable with it. I thought maybe I’m not used to it (beginners issue). After 3 to 4 sessions my opinion didn’t change and noticed the cons of online classes.

P.S: Purely, in my opinion, I’m penning down this post.

After some session, I compared online with offline classes and noticed a few changes in the learning process.

To compare both I’m using pros and cons of online.

PROS of ONLINE

  • More option or choice of courses/subjects.
  • Time flexibility.
  • Access to expertise.
  • Cost-efficient.
  • Documentation of class.
  • Play, pause and play, Review lectures instantly.
  • Comfy environment. You can study where ever and whenever you want.
  • If two-way interaction can clear doubts.

CONS of ONLINE

  • Focus and discipline are less.
  • Little or no face to face interaction. (Doubt remains forever)
  • Lack of social interaction.
  • Questioning ability drops.
  • Whatever they teach, we just learn. No evaluation.
  • Lack of accreditation and low quality. (Some online courses)

Technology gives wide opportunity to comfort level but holds some negative acts too.

Harvard University studied on effects of online courses on mental ability. According to the study the person who opts for an online class has witnessed a lack of questioning ability. He/she believes what the online tutor says. Discipline in learning is weakened, one can skip topics if he is not interested and takes an irregular break, Consistency in studies drops due to this process. Online subjects don’t retain in the memory for a longer period than in classroom teaching.

Presently from class 1 only children are exposing to online teachings if this continues for long learning this gone affect their interaction and questioning ability and the discipline in studies gradually reduces. #toomuch-is-toobad

Cheers!!

  1. One important con you have missed dear, online class primarily effects our eye sight. But due to affordable prices online classes are more reachable to middle class peoples than class room teaching.

    1. You are right, online is cost-effective for middle-class people to learn new subjects, when the learning process does not give benefit for the long run what is the use of investment online classes?
