Getting on the degree path that’s right for you is a big decision. It might make your future or destroy it. While some people prefer online education just because it’s more flexible, I prefer traditional way of education. When we need to choose between them, we have to look at which would make us to learn more not which one is more flexible. I believe that traditional way of education is better for everyone because it gives us the chance to have direct contact with everyone and also you don’t need to struggle of making your own study schedule.
Face-to-face classes give you the opportunity to have immediate feedback from teachers and advisors. Contacting with teachers and advisors face to face is very necessary for students. It allows them to ask more questions that would make them understand better. In addition, it keeps them away of doing mistakes. For instance, last summer I took an online course and it was all about doing assignments. The first week of the course I assigned to do an essay. However, the topic was not clear for me. I sent couple messages to my professor’s email in order to clarify the topic, but he did not sent me back until few hours before the due time. I had no time to fix my mistakes. Thus, I got no credit for this essay. That’s why I strongly believe direct contact keep students clear about everything. Also, attending to class would make them able to interact with classmates and they can ask them too.
Self time-management is hard for some people. If they don’t have schedule at school, they would not be able to manage their own schedule to study. For instance, I don’t do my HW till the last few hours even if it’s assigned for me more than a week. I can’t find time for myself while I’m surrounding by friends. That’s why my grades usually in Face-to-Face classes higher than online courses
