I think being able to access the course when it is convenient for me is great! I look at it as one less class I have to drive to campus for. I do believe, however, that there are some courses you must be in class in order to learn, but I did not feel that speech was one of them or I would be taking it on campus.
One of the major benefits of taking an online class are that you can work on it at your leisure. You have a deadline of when everything needs to be completed and you can work on it right a way which is recommended or push it off if something else comes up.
The benefits of taking an online course are personal. Each individual takes them for a different reason. For me, online courses offer flexibility to stay at home with my children.
The main benefits to taking an online course is that I can take many courses in one semester. This semester i was taking 6 courses simultaneously. Also, in earlier semesters, online courses allowed me to keep working while taking classes.
The benefits for taking this course on line is the flexibility of time. Due to a very busy work schedule I like the benefits of working on my class when I have time. It allows my schedule to be freed up when I need it to be.
There are so many advantages to taking an online class! Being able to set your own schedule to get assignments done is nice, as is being able to see all the assignments up front, so that you can really plan ahead. I love the fact that I can continue to work and be a full time student at the same time, thanks to online classes. Online classes are also great for independent learners - I find it difficult to trust others in group assignments, so I like that everything I submit is my own work.
Some of the benefits of taking online classes are that you don't have to sit in a classroom for an hour and half. I can't sit still for very long also I get bored easily. So online classes are really cool.
The benefits of taking an online course are generally the same for most everyone taking online classes. Time constraints due to work schedules, lifestyles or distance from an institution usually dominate the reasons for taking an online course. Flexibility to schedule your time around your everyday life and other personal activities can make your life a lot less hectic. Other times people choose an online class because of the assumption that it will be easier than the traditional class. For some not wanting to interact with classmates and different personalities can be a reason. I for one do not always feel the need to be around groups of people and being obligated to sit in a classroom with large groups is not something I always look forward to after leaving work. All in all aside from the common reasons, ask ten people why they take an online class and they will give you ten different answers. However, the number one benefit of taking an online class for me is that it drives me to be self motivated and actually learn more than I would in a traditional class.
