Online education isnt for everyone

I have recently noticed a trend in the amount of advertisements for online education. I think it is great for anyone to continue their education but I do not think it is great that they do not tell you the pros and cons of online education. It is definitely not for everyone. Here is a few reasons why. If you are not a dedicated or organized person you should reconsider. Also, if you cannot read a book and teach yourself since you wont have a professor in front of you. I think those that are unsure should look into this article. http://www.bukisa.com/articles/128098_online-education-is-it-for-you

I will be done with school at the end of August so very soon for me. I never did a class in a school once, i did everything online and i have loved it every minute as i think it was easier for me. Listening to a professor or teacher in front of me would just bore me so much and probably end up sleeping because school is quit boring and it has been hard for me, but i know that the online classes were easier as you don't have to sit down for a certain amount of time in a classroom listening to someone speak to you or watching a movie you can't gain interest in. I believe online classes everyone should look into before deciding to take on campus classes.

I finished my degree online also. The point in the article is I dont think everyone can teach themselves or are dedicated enough to do classes online.

Definitely not. Although it's really safe time, safe gas from commuting. But it takes a lot of discipline and commitment. And please check their accreditation before you decide to jump on it.

I finished my degree online but have a co-worker that is going to the same school online and struggling. I graduated with a 4.0 and she is getting c's in all of her classes. This is kind of the reason I wrote that article.

You are current, online learning is not for everyone. I finished my college education online, and it is FAR harder than going to a traditional campus. Certain classes are not that bad, but classes like algebra become a nightmare. Very informative article by the way. Have a super day!

I had a bit of a tough time with the math but I could not stay awake to read through the economics book it was so boring for me.
