With the introduction of online education, students now have more and better options. But which one is the best for you? Should you attend a traditional campus or enroll in an online college?
While many students find it tricky, deciding which one to choose can be a lot easier than it seems. To help you identify the better choice, here’s how traditional and online colleges differ.
Interaction between learners and instructors
In traditional learning, students can interact freely with their instructors. During classroom discussions, it’s easier to ask questions. Likewise, it’s a lot faster to get answers and clarification since both the student and the professor are in the same location.
With online education, on the other hand, students must either send an e-mail or set up an appointment in advance if they need some guidance from their professor. Discussion boards are also another way of communicating between the learners and the instructor. Either way, it takes a tad longer to get questions answered.
