In recently years,due to the development of science and technology,online education become more and more popular,many people choose this way to learn,of course,many dispute it.It's convenient and it will cost less money than study in school.But each coin has two sides,online education also have some disadvantages.For instance,it has lower efficiency and it's bad for our eyes to use computer for hours.What do you think of that?

I think its good for people that dont have the time to go to school. But if you have the time and money then I think that going to school is whats best. I dont think a teenager coming out of highschool should choose an online education over going to school. But for an older person who wants to go back to school but has a family and a job then why not I think its good that they came out with school online

Online education has so many convenience and benefits.If I have my child,I must let him study online through remote education instead of going to school.This is my dream,the best wishes to it.

Hi :-), For me, I would say online education should only be practiced in some instances like when a student is sick or got injured. Online education does not actually take effective educating students who are at home especially these students who are not in bad condition. It is because they might be doing other things while on the discussion which cause them to be less focused and pay attention. That is one of the negative effect of online education, it could result to students becoming lazy because going to class is not a problem anymore as these technology made life for them is so easy. So if it continued, our youth nowadays would be very lazy 'coz of too much reliance on technology. Further, In online education there is less control of instructors over students especially when they have to ingrain the values and norms of the school. Happy mylotting. have a great day ahead :-)

Why not?I find it really useful if you are educated along with internet,you can search for question that you have doubt with and going more specific to the question especially if you are not a fast learner.In class,you might be a hindrance to others in learning if you absorbed slower that others.
