Online education allows you to take courses in the convenience of your home, office, or remote location without having to sacrifice time and money to attend the course on-campus or in a training facility.
As opposed to onsite instruction, the online experience is that of mentor-student, with the instructor (mentor) charged with there responsibility of guiding you through a full understanding of the concepts, an ability to apply them to real-life examples, and to find connections between the course content and your professional and personal goals.
With a one-on-one relationship between instructor and student, direct questions can be asked, and projects can be developed that have direct bearing on job and academic needs.
The benefits of online include increased relevance, improved responsiveness, and personalized tutoring.
Online education is a time-tested and pedagogically sound method of instruction.
