Advantages of Online Learning

Advantages of Online Learning

According to Zucker & Feldman (2000: 8) online learning offers a variety of educational opportunities:

a.       Student-centered learning

The variety of online tools draw on individual learning styles and help students become more versatile learners.

b.      Collaborative learning

Online group work allows students to become more active participants in the learning process. Contributing input requires that students comprehend what is being discussed, organize their thinking coherently, and express that thinking with carefully constructed language.

c.       Easy access to global resources

Students can easily access online databases and subject experts in the online classroom.

d.      Experiential learning through multimedia presentations

New technologies can be used to engage and motivate students. Technology can also be used to support students in their learning activities.

e.       Accessible for non-traditional students

Online delivery of programs and courses makes participation possible for students who experience geographic and time barriers in gaining access to higher education.

f.       Draws on student interest in online learning

Many students are interested in online learning. In a recent survey conducted by the Office of Academic Planning and Assessment at UMass Amherst, more than 50% of students surveyed said that they were “very interested” or “somewhat interested” in taking an online course.
