Online Classes vs. In Person Classes
Good communication skills are very important part of online learning, but at the same time it is harder to engage in online classes than in face to face classes. Students need to ask questions to teacher. There are many subjects that include group reading or assignments which most of the people don’t like doing over a zoom meeting it is was easier if you are physically in a class.
There is a strong point from the people that believe that online classes are better than in person classes that online classes put you in more competitive position you must run against the time and do your assignments on time. So, you learn more quickly you have very limited time and resources you can’t go to tutoring center any time so you do most of the work your self that makes you learn a lot more.
One more good side of online classes is that the classes are available at very low prices. You don’t have to pay tons of money just to attend college. According to a research student learn five times more in online classes than what they learn in the face to face interactions in classrooms.
Another positive side of online classes is that you are not dependent on anyone. When you are on campus you can get help from you friends, teacher, and all other options you got in your college. But in online classes you have very limited amount of resources that you can use so you work more by yourself.
Everything have pros and cons one of the main positive side of on campus classes is that you can have face to face interaction with people. One of the most important things is that most people are not very comfortable with presentation but when you are on campus you get a lot of practice presenting in your class and I think that helps you in all your life. One more point is that you get to hangout with your friends and party that is one of the best part of your college life.
