It seems rational to state that the classical approach to education requires significant spending on various facilities – starting from classrooms and ending with computers. Servicing these facilities implies more considerable expenses if to compare with online education (Thompson, 2021). The latter needs fewer things – competent specialists, access to the Internet, and, probably, prepaid subscription on a tool such as Zoom. Indeed, the pandemic has caused a substantial impact on the educational sector, but it does not mean that the value of education itself has reduced. If there are advanced specialists who are able to deliver knowledge, the tools – whether it is Zoom or a classroom – by which this knowledge is delivered are not crucial; thus, tuition should not be less (Nickols, 2021). Online education is a significant approach to learning as there are more opportunities to manage time properly and pay more attention to additional knowledge, as evident from my experience, which is becoming a norm today.
