The findings, drawn from a larger study, are based on interviews with students. They were a mix of ages and most were working.
Most students said they took online courses because of the flexible schedule, and some older students said they preferred a virtual classroom because they didn’t have to interact with their younger classmates.
But most said they missed the personal back-and-forth of the classroom.

  28. 28. Advantages of Online Education  It’s more efficient.  Students can direct their own pace.  Provides the flexibility for students to move at their own pace, unlike a classroom setting where everyone must keep up with, or slow down to, the instructor’s pace.

  33. 33. Conclusion  There are both pros and cons of online education.  Online learning should be seen as a complement and extension of classical forms of learning. Not even the best online course can fully replace the personal contact with a teacher, or the human relationships that develop in a group.  So, traditional classes should not be replaced with online learning. http://www.innosightinstitute.org/innosight/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/Classifying-K-12-blended-learning2.pdf 9/10/2013 33
  34. 34. Conclusion Online education will continue to develop, but classroom teaching will also continue on improving at the same pace 9/10/2013 34
  35. 35. Making the difference The teacher's presence will always be essential in the classroom, but the character has changed 9/10/2013 35
