You are debating about taking your classes online or going to a traditional school and have a lot of things to consider. More than likely you already know what classes you want to take, what degree you would like to get, and how you plan to pay for it, so at least you don’t have to worry about those things anymore. However, now you need to consider what experience you will get by taking your classes online versus going to classes on campus and what you will need to worry about.
If you take your classes online you don’t have to worry about getting rained on. Going to classes on campus you will have to worry about the elements. Even though you have watched the news before leaving the house, and believe you are prepared for the bright dry sunny day, you get to campus and find it starts to drizzle. When you have watched the weather man, believe it will be sunny, only to find out he was wrong and it is actually raining all day long, walking around campus is not going to be fun. If you take your classes online, you know you will never have to worry about getting caught in the rain and spending the rest of the day with wet socks and shoes.
You also won’t have to worry about some guy who side swiped your car in the parking lot. Fighting the parking lot battle is not something you will have to deal with when taking your classes online. Getting stuck in traffic, and then having to circle around the school in order to find a parking space that is more than likely still a mile from your class is pretty normal at most traditional institutions. By getting your degree online, probably the most traffic you will have to deal with is finding a spot on the couch or local coffee shop.
Sometimes going to a traditional class is nice because you get to meet other people, have fun by joking and talking (not while the professor is talking of course). However, there is always that one person who continues to clear their throat, sniff, cough, click their pen, tap their foot, and annoy you in more ways than one. This is a great reason why you should get your degree online, if someone is doing these things, just pick up your stuff and do the class at a later time. Another type of person to look out for in a normal class room is the “questioner” and “last-word” person. These are the people that will ask questions constantly that make you wonder “will they ever stop? Oh no, was that another question?” Or, they are the ones who think it is appropriate to argue with the teacher about a subject. Online, most questions are sent directly to the teacher, so you don’t need to worry about the constant questions.
Last thing that can be a worry about attending classes on a campus: meals. If you are taking classes in the middle of the day or in the evening, at some point you are going to need to eat. Campus food can get quite expensive if someone buys it every day. You only have so many choices of where you want to eat while taking traditional classes, and you are also in a time crunch to get to your next class. If you are getting your degree online and you have a snack attack, you just have to go to the kitchen. Or, depending on the time frame of whatever the assignment is you are working on, you can stop it for right then, go eat, and pick back where you left off later.
Taking your classes online gives you the freedom to take your classes when it is convenient for you and earn your degree at your own pace. You also won’t have to deal with the little annoyances that come with campus classes. There are so many different degrees and programs that can be taken online, and is a great choice for anyone with a full time job or other conflicts.
