ONSITE LEARNING VS. ONLINE LEARNING

Not long ago, many of us were paying additional fees to live on campus, gassing up our vehicles to take a long journey to and from school, spending long hours in lectures only to leave and clock-in to your scheduled shift. However, e-learning allowed us to skip the additional fees, reduce transportation costs while reducing emissions to help the environment, and have free time for studying and rest.

Although e-learning does bring ease of access there are some pros and cons to consider:

Onsite Learning

Pros

  • Social Interaction.
  • Immediate answers from instructions. No waiting on emails.
  • Structured schedules.

Cons

  • Long drives to and from class if not living on campus.
  • Extended hours in lectures.
  • Not as flexible for work schedules.

Online Learning

Pros

  • Ease of access. You don’t have to leave your home.
  • Save money living off-campus.
  • Learn at your pace.

Cons

  • Less social interaction.
  • May not be suitable for dependent learners.
  • Must be computer savvy/ literate.

E-learning is an excellent resource, however, making a checklist before embarking on this journey can help you decide if e-learning is truly the path for you. It may be that the traditional classroom gives you the one-on-one access you need as a dependent learner to guide you through your course. The choice is yours.
