1) Convenience. 

Courses are accessible whenever, where ever you want to study and learn!

In other words, you can weave your learning into the times that work best for you, right now. So, you can keep the schedule you want.

With the abundance of digital devices, learning platforms have adapted and you can now study and submit assignments/discussions from your laptop, tablet, or even your mobile phone.

​2) More Collaborative Learning. 

Online courses encourage more class participation and interaction. 

You can ping your professors and peers whenever you're hit with inspiration. Instead of passively listening to a lecture, a lot of courses require students to add to the discussion. so that means every student has the opportunity to input their thoughts and ideas into the conversation, which adds to the depth of the discussion.

 3) More Concentrated Time.  

In most online classes, you have the e​ntire week to work with and study the materials provided instead of just a few days in between class meetings. 

By choosing your own pace, you can allocate your time as you see fit. So you get to decide which materials need more time, and which can be mastered with less.

 4) No Schedule Conflicts. Ever. 

Since your time is no longer spoken for, you'll never have to decide between two courses that meet at the same time. You can take whichever one you want. Or both!

And that's just with your course schedule. Deadlines work the same way. You won't have to worry about not being able to turn in an assignment because real life showed up and you couldn't attend class

Online courses still have deadlines, but the window to work on and turn it in is much greater.

5) Save Money. 

Whether it's on commuting costs (gas, parking, bus/train fare), meals on the go, or possible lost wages by missing work, the savings can be substantial.

6) Comfortable Learning Environments. 

Besides no crowded lecture halls, you can “attend” class in your home, at the library, the local coffee shop or even in your pajamas! If might be weird to wear pajamas in a coffee shop, but that's up to you. The point is that you can control your environment and any possible distractions.

7) Improve Your Technical Skills.  

With an online course, you’ll become much more comfortable using and navigating technology, which translate directly into many professional experiences. (For instance: creating/sharing documents, incorporating audio/video materials into presentations, using the newest sites/apps that businesses soon rely on.)

8) Professional and Personal Advancement. 

Complete your education while maintaining a career and your personal life. So you no longer need to decide between work, family, friends, OR education. 

Online learning offers the ability to balance your schedule as you choose. 

9) Improve Other Applicable Skills.

Online learning offers an opportunity to sharpen a wide range of skills. Typically, online students improve in skills like: time management, prioritizing, accountability, reading/writingcritical thinking, focus, etc. etc. 


10) Experience More Diversity. 

Your professor and classmates are no longer limited to just those in your immediate area. So, you can have class discussions with people as far away as Austin to Australia. This global scope can broaden your world view and experience life from a different perspective. 

11) Access. 

For those that cannot physically make it to a campus, online learning opens up educational opportunities for students with disabilities as well as those who simply live too far from campus. 

12) Environmental Responsibility. 

Cutting down on commuting could greatly reduce the amount of greenhouse gases that are released. For reference, we release one ton of carbon monoxide into the atmosphere for every 2500 miles we drive. So, with some simple math - if someone lived five miles away and commuted to campus four days a week, after a year they would have created about half a ton of carbon dioxide.
