When I was a kid, a snow day was ideal. As the schools shut down, you had the whole day to do what you wanted. A snow day is a great thing. There are some who may think it’s the worst. I mean shoveling. the cold, and the dangerous conditions are nothing to laugh about.
I prefer to have snow days because of the amount of work I can accomplish at home. Nevertheless, I’ve had moments, during my college years, where I was bummed out because I really wanted to take my final exam, but it was postponed due to a winter storm.
Accomplish Your Goals Quicker
However, sometimes it can be a bit of a let down especially when you’re trying to accomplish your goals. I am the type of person who prefers to finish on time and get things out of the way especially when it comes to education. During my time in school, there wasn’t such a thing as taking online classes! It wasn’t that long ago either. Since my time in school, a lot has changed though. Online education is becoming more accepted and the norm in society. This is because more are starting to understand convenience.
No Useless Lectures. Courses Online are as Good as In-Class
I’ve taken several classes online for vocational programs and my Master’s online. I recently earned my Online Medical Billing & Coding certification. I remember how happy I was not having to sit through useless lectures. It sometimes felt like my instructors would put fluff in their lessons to make sure they could teach the full 4 or 5 hours that we were there. The amount that I learned with an online course was as good or even better than my in-class experiences.
I was skeptical at first about online classes. Then I realized that it wasn’t how it used to be. The advancement of technology made it possible to take courses online. With video interactions, augmented realities, and the improvement of mobile applications, online learning is as great as in-class learning. If you’re the type of person who is always on the go, it’s probably one of the best inventions of this century.
It’s 100% Approved and Accepted
What I learned is that it’s 100% approved and accepted by government educational entities. They accept that people are busier than ever before. Additionally, due to the pandemic, learning is a must. With the introduction of online classrooms, it’s becoming widely accepted by business leaders, teachers, and other officials. It may not replace the in-class 100%, but it’s definitely at the point where more people are adapting to it.
As a matter of fact, more employers are preferring online certifications due to the understanding of the technology that it represents. In other words, a person who takes their courses online will more likely demonstrate the ability to understand and use most technological equipment that places need.
We are moving towards a remote school and work environment. If you are considering taking an online class, I’d say try it and see if it works for you!
