Online learning vs in-person learning
With our the current pandemic, online learning is definitely much safer than in-person learning!
If you are thinking of starting a new career or learning some new skills to advance your career, it can be tricky deciding what the best mode of learning is for you. Is classroom learning more beneficial and offer a better learning experience, or is online learning better?
More and more people are moving away from the traditional classroom-based learning, and online learning has been growing in popularity in the last decade. Whilst the traditional face-to-face training is a tried and tested method for learning, taking a course online now offers the same benefits and more!
Not only do you get the same structured learning with high quality resources, you also benefit from being able to learn anywhere, at your own pace and in the comforts of your own space. With many accredited courses, you even get to engage with your classmates just like in-person training!
Other advantages of online learning
- Greater options – instead of only being able to access the courses available within your vicinity, you are now able to access the skills and knowledge you need, regardless of where the course provider is
- Flexibility – study anytime, anywhere (even in your bedroom!) and you decide the pace of your learning
- Distance is no longer a factor – with modern technology, those who live in rural areas or are interstate (or even in another country!), can now learn from the comforts of their own home
- More affordable options – you can save a lot of time and money by eliminating travel time and costs, babysitting costs, and other miscellaneous costs involved with classroom-based learning
