Hi everyone! I'm from Qatar. Nice to meet you. It's my first time studying online. I hope to learn a lot from the course and from all of you!

Welcome everyone. I'm Canadian but living in Scotland. The last time I studied anything was forty years ago … I'm a bit nervous! Good luck, everyone!

Hello. I'm so happy to be doing this course. I've finished two other online courses this year so I'm looking forward to my third. I'm from Vietnam by the way. Looking forward to meeting you all!

Hi! Looks like I'm the first one here so … hi to everyone who joins the course and nice to meet you! Good luck with the course and see you in the next lesson!

Tips

1. Keep your introduction short and clear.

2. Say hello and give a little bit of information about yourself. Don’t say anything too private or personal.

3. You can say what you hope to get or learn.

4. Wish people good luck.

5. You don’t have to write full sentences.

6. You might use more exclamation marks (!) than in formal writing because it looks friendly.

What I like the most about studying online is the chance of learning from home which helps you avoid a waste of time commuting. In addition, I think it is also worth considering the fact that many online courses bring you the possibility of choosing the time when you want to do it, therefore you can choose whether you want to do it in the morning, in the afternoon or in the evening; depending on what time best suits you. Finally, another important advantage to point out is that most of the time you can manage how fast you want to move forward with the course. Each person has its own way of learning and some may learn faster than others, so online courses are good for those who prefer to take some time to better understand each concept.

I like studying online because we can learn everywhere and every time. And then we can save the time to go the place where we learn. After that most of the online classes are free. That's why I really like online learning.

I really love studying online. I find it so convenient and I could study with everyone not only from my region but also all over the world. Apparently, it is cheaper and saving lots of time than studying in school. Moreover, I had my lesson by greatest professor that is my dream at my school.

In online studies you can choose the right hours for you, as well as you do not have to leave home and spend time on the road.

To start, online learning offers a comfort learning unlike classrooms. Secondly, it provides the marvelous opportunity to learn everywhere as well as anytime. And most importantly, there is zero chance for you to be called out by a teacher if you are learning online.

I think both online and in-person classes have their positive aspects. My university has been offering online classes since May due to the corona virus. I've been doing online classes for six months, and there have been advantages but also disadvantages. One advantage is that I can sleep until just before the class starts. If it is an on-demand class, I can listen to the class over and over again. As a demerit, the point that the connection situation becomes bad, I feel a time lag, and the point that it is a little difficult to submit an assignment is raised as a demerit. I hear some of my friends say that they want to have face-to-face classes and go to college. I am one of those people who would like to go to college and meet my friends, but lately, going to college seems to be a struggle for me. For a long time, I lost my motivation to stay home and study while refraining myself. Now I don't prefer either face-to-face or online classes. I spend my days wondering if my motivation will return once the corona virus subsides.
