The ability to learn new information or a new skill whenever you want and wherever you want offers far greater opportunities for education than ever before. The scope and reach of education broadens to far greater horizons that perhaps ever imagined.”

Adjusting to an online learning model could be a challenge at first, but once you adapt to the format, there are numerous benefits to be realized. No matter the reason you choose to pursue online education, earning an online degree can help prepare you for career advancement and demonstrate key skills to potential employers. 

Comfort in your own home is a strong advantage in online learning,but not fully comfortable to the point where you feel lazy to do productive work. The fact that online programs are cheaper when compared to the ones held in a traditional campus setting is enough to convince you to consider them. Also you don’t have to travel to campus everyday for classes. So it cuts out transportation fee. Also Studying online gives you more flexibility. You can work and fit your work schedule (and your hobbies) around your coursework more easily.

My experience

Since the pandemic of COVID-19 I recently had to transition from face to face Learning to online learning. It has been a difficult journey but with focus and determination I have managed to pull through and do my very best. I faced a number of challenges during my first few weeks starting online learning such as, lack of internet access, not enough guidance on how to access relevant online platforms and a nervous breakdown. I had to set a functional working space so that I could get use to the environment. I did not know how to manage online learning but over time I began to get the gist of things by being very organized and communicating with my lecturers on things pertaining to my courses. Being organized is the best suggestion that I can give to new students. Once you get the hang of it and get in a rhythm of adapting schoolwork into your daily routine, it seems like you are just rolling along.
