June 05, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 139

In the past higher education was only accessible by means of attending a class at a school campus. But nowadays students have the option to obtain education online by means of the internet. Both of these options of obtaining a degree have their own pros and cons. The key here is knowing which option would best suit your lifestyle, budget and schedule. The information presented here is not biased towards one or the other rather it will show you the pros and cons for both online education and traditional on campus education and from there you can decide for yourself which one is best for you.

The first thing that you need to do is to get a piece of paper and make 2 columns. One column should be allocated for the traditional education and the other column is for the online education. Now, once you've divided the paper into 2 columns the next step would be to divide each column into two parts for the Advantages and Disadvantages of each option of learning.

Individuals who have a Master's degree are more likely to get a promotion than those who only have a bachelor's degree. But, despite this fact many people cannot go back to school and get their master's degree. Even those who have the financial capacity are having a hard time getting their master's degree. With distance education, anyone who has the desire and the money can obtain their master's degree while continuing with their current job. This is because distance education can be taken up almost anywhere. It could be in the workplace, mall, home or even at the park! Just as long as there is an internet connection the online student can access his lessons virtually anywhere he desires. Flexible learning environment is very important for those individuals who are busy juggling their career and family lives but desire to finish their studies. With the right time management, anyone can succeed with distance education. One of the obvious disadvantages of distance education is that it requires discipline, self-motivation and determination to be successful in your studies.

As for the traditional education, the advantage of studying in a conventional school campus is that you are more motivated to study because you have classmates and you can physically see your professor daily. A classroom setting study would give the student an opportunity to interact with other students face-to-face which is also vital in the formation of one's social skills. When applying for work, working with employers and other people, social skills is also important. The disadvantage of a conventional education is that it doesn't' offer much time flexibility, which might be difficult for individuals who have other priorities in life, or do not live close to a traditional university.
