a few good reasons to learn online

We discussed the benefits of online learning before here and here. However, the list goes on. Here are a few great points from Mashable, who argued their case for the virtual classroom a couple of weeks ago.

  1. Online education doesn’t have to suck.
  2. Universities have limited physical space.
  3. Education can change the world.
  4. Global understanding is more important than ever.
  5. The internet empowers self-motivated learners.
  6. The virtual classroom can make the physical classroom more effective.

An excellent point here is about self-motivated learners. Online learning is excellent for students who are eager to learn. Taking a self-paced course, like many online courses are, takes initiative. Online learning and virtual classrooms can bring subjects to these eager, invested learners that may not be available in school, or that simply do not fit into their schedule.
