Every parent’s dream is to influence their children with life skills that will guide them to success in the future. In most cases, parents usually work full time jobs to achieve extra income to save for their children college costs. A college education could very well be that “cherry on top of the ice cream” for parents, and give them a moment to relax and finally take a breather. Today we find young adults with jobs working as hard their parents once did. This made it difficult to balance both work and school for them. In some instances, parents are usually the child’s first role model and teach them to set the standard for a good foundation of direction and determination. Students have been finding different methods to make it work by balancing out their work and school schedules. For example, working various schedules has been difficult, to include, morning, midday or twilight shifts just to add school, in their schedule. The burden in juggling work, school and personal time resulted in school taking a back seat and leaving no room to attend a traditional classroom.
Distance learning has opened the door to the education community, businesses and private companies in many ways to assist those by introducing classroom instruction via online. Onlineeducation has boomed the past few years and has given individuals the chance to further their...

OnlineEducationOnlineeducation is not as beneficial as a real course, which includes collaboration between a teacher and students. Even though online courses are cheaper, they do not always benefit the student’s needs in the classroom. Traditional classes are beneficial compared to online courses because students have better collaboration, motivation, time management, and it eliminates the feeling of isolation.
There becomes a problem with onlineeducation because some students need more attention and help than others. Mark Edmundson explains that, “courses delivered solely online may be fine for highly skilled, highly motivated people, but they are inappropriate for struggling students who make up a significant portion of college enrollment and who need close contact with instructors to succeed” (Edmundson). Having contact with the instructor is important because the students learn the instructors teaching techniques and he or she will be there for any questions that the students may have about an assignment. Having person-to-person contact with the professor makes it easy to get further instructions or clarification for any confused subjects.
Having motivation is key to success. It is very difficult to be motivated when being signed up for an online class for many...
...growth in technology has changed our lives in many aspects. One of these aspects is onlineeducation, also called electronic learning. Onlineeducation originated from distance education, for those students, which plan to acquire knowledge through Internet. Today, there are so many universities that impart knowledge through online platforms. One good example of such platform is blackboard learning commonly known as bbvista, used in Drexel University. Students have a stereotypical image that traditional courses are better than online courses, but that’s not true. This image is quite impractical in this technology era.
Onlineeducation opens new horizons for students to apply even in the universities that are far from their place. The students don’t have to drive to the school to attend a lecture and rather watch the slides online and do the required assignment for that topic. But there’s one drawback in this type of learning is that the student is missing valuable words of lecturer. The words of the lecturer is the extra knowledge that only those students can gain which are attending the lecture.
The flexibility of online courses enables students to take their lessons whenever and wherever they want. Especially in Drexel University that has co-op system, the students can take online...

Onlineeducation better prepares a colleague for their future by offering smaller student to teacher ratios and tailoring materials to the student's specific interests; however, traditional school education prepares a colleague to interact with groups of other students and learn social skills and conflict resolution, through sports or other outside activities. Each education method has advantages and disadvantages for students to choose the best education for each individual needs.
