Why Online Learning is The Future

There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning.
- Jiddu Krishnamurti

Where once we would need to head off to a physical building to get our degree or diploma, now we have more amazing options than ever. We can choose almost any degree and learn it online. While, yes, there are some things that you are likely to learn better by doing, getting all the foundations in place before putting the knowledge into action is no bad thing. They do say ‘fail to plan, plan to fail’– with good reason. Sometimes online learning can be used alongside a career you are already in. Doing this is brilliant because an online course, while they may have some set deadlines, they otherwise entirely fit around as and when you have time to learn.

What are some of the other bonuses to online learning?

Total comfort. After a day of work, you can kick back in whatever you find most comfortable, surrounded by home comforts and learn as you go. As all of your lectures and course notes will be at your fingertips, you are free to pause them, have a bath or cook some dinner then come back to it. In fact, if you really want to, you can watch lecture content while IN the tub.

It usually costs less. That one might seem a bit self-explanatory – but let’s break it down a bit. Online programs have fewer overheads for the provider, which means the course can often be much cheaper than if you were to head off to somewhere with brick and mortar you’ll be paying a premium for the privilege. You can usually break down the course into smaller easier to afford bits too. Aside from the actual course costs, you’re going to save money on gas to and from the campus, lunches in between classes, and other smaller costs that build up over the year.

It looks great on your resume. It doesn’t matter if you are at the top of the bottom of your field, having online learning on your resume shows that you are still working on yourself and your career. When you are learning online between a full-time job, say a member of the police force doing an online police degree, it shows a particular type of dedication. While many moons ago an online degree was seen as a lesser achievement, the opinions have done a 180 – where now it is a thoroughly respected method of learning, due to the amount of ambition it takes to manage online learning with a full-time job.

Self-paced. Some education options come with something called ‘self-paced’, which means you will be able to meet targets at any time at all. You can arrange your entire learning schedule to meet your needs. There will be zero live sessions to attend, and no matter what you have going on in your life the learning can work for you.
