Studying online that I don't need to dress up or make up and I feel really comfortable when I learn in my personal space. In addition, studying online doesn't require me to go so far to study at school.
Please correct my grammar if I was wrong somewhere.

Online learning is very convenient, you can study anytime, anywhere. The main advantage is that it is very flexible and can save a lot of time. Imagine that you do not need to go to a special location to attend a class. This is really important for those who have a family and need to take care of their children. Another benefit of studying online is that you can keep your job while studying. It is not easy for a working people to quit his job and study full-time. If you take online courses, you can keep both your work and study. You can also choose overseas online courses, so you do not need to leave your friends, your family and your current life.

Learning online is not the good way , though. Because I have no chance to meet my teacher and classmates to discuss and talk about our lesson. When we learn online, the time is limited even to not comfortable to share ideas each other.

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.

Submitted by Moon Wathan on Sun, 11/10/2020 - 15:01

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.

I like learning online. First of all, it offers an effective method to achieve knowledge in almost every field. Next, I can study at a time that suits my schedule and save traveling time. Then, some online courses are provided with much lower costs and some are even offered for free. Finally, online learning courses are becoming to be more and more popular because of the above advantages.

I prefer studying online to face-to-face lessons. Until now, I did not like online because I was not good at machines. However, my school life has changed completely due to the influence of the coronavirus. It often did not work at first, but I felt it suits me after I get used to it. I can immediately spend my non-class time for myself. Recently, I have been living a meaningful life by such as cleaning my room and training muscles during my breaks. Also, I am weak in the morning, so I am very saved everyday. Since I can not go to school, I have more time to spare. This improve my performance for one day. It is also good to study at my pace. Now I am worried about returning to face-to-face lessons because I am too accustomed to this living. But after all, I would like to meet friends and have a wonderful time. The best thing for me to do is to have face-to-face contact with each day of the week. I would like to do more that I can only do now.

I like studying online. There are many reasons. One is I can look and watch class materials and on demand class again and again. Some class isn’t leaving the class materials but many classes, I can look again class materials, so I can deepen my understanding. Furthermore, I think It is the best thing about online classes it is I don’t have to go outside. I don’t have to go to school in very hot outside in summer and I always get motion sick to take the train. I don’t want to take the train, but on-line class is don’t have to take the train. Moreover, I don’t have to wake up early. I can sleep long time. If I have overslept, I will make it on time for class. For that reason, I like on-line classes. of course, there many bad things. My house internet connection is not stable, and the sound quality is bad, so it is difficult to understand what teacher said. I often can’t listen that teacher said. In this way there are bad things but if I have to choose which one, I choose online class. Not take long time for commute is attractive.

It's so helpful. You can meet people from different countries, exchange your experiences with them, learn about their culture and language. Also learning online, in the team can help you to improve each other the part that you are missing because each of member in the team has different skills, views of point, and experiences.

I like that I can study when it suits me. It could be in the evening when my kid's gone to sleep and don't disturb me or in the morning when I'm still fresh-minded and can do my best. Another good point - I can communicate with people from many countries. It's so cool to read their stories, know that we are very different but still have much in common.
