“The temptations are Real” - Online Learning

Distractions Everywhere

What are the Biggest Challenges of Online Courses?

  1. Motivation – how do you keep motivated.
  2. Accountability – there is nobody looking over your shoulder.
  3. Time Management – you have to plan and stick to your own timetable.
  4. Confidence – it can be easy to fall behind, lose confidence and drop out.
  5. Lacking technical skills – you need some (but not too much) technical ability.
  6. Being proactive – when you get stuck on a problem, you need to take charge of the situation and find a solution.
  7. Loneliness – you have far fewer chances for random chats and encounters with your classmates.
  8. Persistence – you have to keep studying even when you don’t feel like it.

There’s no doubt that studying online is a very different experience from studying in a classroom setting.

There are benefits to be sure such as…

  • You can study at a time that suits you
  • You can vary your study schedule each week to match changing work or family commitments
  • You can work at a pace that suits you
  • You don’t have to waste money or time on travel costs, no parking charges and no books to buy.

Let’s embrace online learning for the blessing that it is!
This year has been filled with inconveniences. We must simply adapt, accept, and move on.

First of all, we students have a later wake-up time than usual. Although there is no change in the time that school officially starts, there is no need to wake up as early as we used to. For online school, there is no need for transportation, all there is to do is freshen up, eat something, and perhaps finish up something before class. The responsibility to commute on a daily basis took up a lot of time, but now that aspect has completely changed due to instant arrival on a computer. Later wake-up times initiate better rest, which leads to better academic performance as well.

Furthermore, there is not as much importance put on dressing up every day. Many students develop negative connotations with school due to the amount of pressure there is for looking or dressing a certain way. Most online classrooms have an option for camera off, so now there is a lack of legitimate person-to-person interaction. There is less peer pressure to be overwhelmed with, so more focus can be put on understanding the curriculum instead of outward appearance.

Finally, there is more class flexibility in an online setting. Google meet rooms and chats are so easy to use on a daily basis.  In this day and age, there are a plethora of efficient tools/advanced features that can improve your learning experience. Just by clicking a link or pressing an icon, you can instantly go from one group to another. You don’t have to stress about making it on time to a class on the third floor- while also making time to pick up necessary materials from your locker on another floor. 

All in all, it is important to shed a little light during a dark time. Everyone has their own dislikes and disapprovals for certain aspects of online schooling, but with every setback, there are always some advantages that we unknowingly take for granted.
