Since the global pandemic, remote learning has become a common practice in schools and higher educational establishments. However, with the less strict regulations nowadays, many colleges once again transition to onsite classes, which naturally raises many debates regarding its reasonability. Overall, I believe that after experiencing the actual benefits of online education, it seems relevant to suggest the continuation of such a learning process.
To elaborate, online learning yields numerous financial benefits to the students, considering that the youth no longer needs to spend money on commuting or lunches indoors. Besides, stationery is not required as online learning inclines technology usage for making notes or passing exams. However, adolescents can experience the advantages of a more comfortable and focused learning environment as, for instance, Zoom classes are rather not distracting compared to the onsite lessons with group mates. I have also noticed students’ tendency to enhance their time management skills during online classes. To be more exact, distance learning keeps the youth on a regular schedule of lessons and the deadlines for the assignment that should be met throughout the weeks, allowing adolescents to remain productive week-to-week.
Furthermore, the primary benefit of online learning is the minimized risks of students contracting Covid-19. The pandemic has definitely taught many people to be more cautious about their health, so even with the reduction of the virus, most students may be scared to get ill due to contact with their group mates. In contrast, online learning allows the youth to not only avert contracting diseases but infect their colleagues if they are, by any chance, sick. By and whole, many advantages of distance education provide more opportunities for more satisfactory academic performance and enhanced well-being of the students, causing the onsite classes to be less suitable nowadays.
