The internet is one of the most reliable sources of information and these days it is not only used for research but also for many things like business and education. With the advent of technology, our lives have changed dramatically. The internet, for one, has totally changed the educational system of our country.
Long ago education can only be attained by attending classes in a classroom-setting. However, with internet and a mobile device one can now enjoy the hassle-free online educational programs being offered by prestigious schools and educational institutions. The influence of the internet has made man’s life more comfortable and easier that obtaining an education is possible even for those individuals who are bus managing their business and for busy moms at home.
The old cliché that “there is nothing permanent here on earth but constant change” is definitely true and even our mode of education and communication has constantly changed over the past years. Long ago, our source of information was by means of letters, telegrams and word-of-mouth. But now we can access all sorts of information within just a matter of seconds. All it takes is a fast internet connection and a mobile device. The biggest change that our country has experienced with the presence of internet is how education can be obtained. The traditional method of teaching- where professors and students can see each other face to face to send and receive information is now replaced with videos and reading materials that can be easily accessed online.
However, despite the fact that online education is becoming popular in this generation there are still people who aren’t familiar with the online education aspects. So, how does the speed of internet affect online education? How can students take advantage of online learning? Some people argue that the quality of education of our country is slowly depreciating and this has worsen now that we have the distance learning in existence. Is it really true that distance learning is a trash?
Many questions continue to haunt people as we go forward to the generation where internet is constantly evolving but many people, especially those who have tried online education, can say that the information being offered by distance learning is as timely and concise as the ones being offered in traditional schools.
In the future, I believe the a fast internet connection will greatly benefit those who are investing into online education.
