Clayton Craw Posted over 1 year ago Is private online teaching worth it? Should we change useful traditional methods of teaching into suspicious new ones? I am a student pursuing a degree online through Arizona State University. In fact, this post itself is part of one of my projects this week. Online education has been hugely beneficial for me. It has allowed me to learn at a pace that I am comfortable with, while keeping me on track with deadlines. I love being able to pause videos and lectures to allow time for reflection or side research. My professors give prompt responses to emails when I have a question or concern. The online platform has given me opportunities to learn in ways that I never experienced in a classroom. I think that online education is the way of the future. Especially with the growing presence of websites like http://www.coursera.org offering free classes. This provides an opportunity for education to many people around the world that would have never received it any other way.
