When taking an online program, it’s easy to balance your work with family work. A student can access and participate in the learning programs whenever he feels convenient for him and when he feels is right for him. Compared to convectional learning, where a student is required to be in class and must participate in learning program when the lecturer is available, the student can log in study and can pause his program and continue later. Distance is not an issue in e-learning.
A student can participate in a school of choice no matter the geographical location provided there is required infrastructure, computer and internet. A student can take the programs any time even when the school location is at late night. In convectional courses, classes are mostly done during the day, thus limiting time for work and other social responsibilities. During public holidays, most schools do not hold classes. An e-learning program does not recognize this and a student can take classes.
This gives a student convenience because this could probably the time he is available for studies. On the other hand, the students are allowed to work at their convenient pace in a week and schedule their discussion and also have convenient time set for their exams. Students are able to accept examinations and assignments when they are ready compared to convectional learning where the examinations are done according to the convenience of the lecturer.
