Generally speaking, online courses have a major benefit over traditional learning with their reduced cost. For example, there is no cost for commuting. Assorted costs that are related to transport, such as fuel, parking, car maintenance, and public transportation costs don't affect the online student. Online course are often a fraction of the cost of an in house training session and on top of that have a lot of other benefits that come with them.
Increased Student – Teacher Interaction
Often in physical class learning can have larger crowds that online class learning which leads to less interaction between the student and teacher due to constraints on the teacher but also group mutism. We’ve all been involved in classes where you want to ask a question but keep quite for fear of seeming silly in front of a group. Smaller classes allow for better interaction between student and teachers which improves the learning experience.
The advent of E-Learning has meant that for many companies and individuals they can learn from anyone anywhere. You no longer need to be within driving distance of a course in order to undertake it. With E-Learning people in Toronto and Ireland can learn from someone in the UK without having to leave their living room.
Refined Critical Thinking
Critical thinking plays a role in any type of education; however, online learning forces you to develop your critical thinking skills in ways that you might not have practiced in an in-person classroom setting. This sort of self-paced and self-motivated learning demonstrates to future employers that you have the ability to think critically and overcome any obstacles that might stand in your way.
