Some people say that online study is the most effective and convenient way to learn. Others believe that online study will never be as effective as learning at school, in person.
Discuss both views and give your own opinion.
It is argued that lectures provided over the internet are the best approach to learn, however, others say that classes at a school are more effective than online lectures. While online teaching helps people to save time, I believe that the conventional class system is more preferable because it is easy to clear concepts in the classroom.
On the one hand, the supporters of the online study believe that when people opt to take online lectures, it helps them to save time. This is due to the fact that they do not have to worry about to get ready and reach the school on time. Instead, they can watch the video lectures at their convenience and can do their work without any tension of skipping lectures. For example, a recent study by Cambridge University found that 30% of people who joined online classes admitted that this form of study helped them to study regularly alongside with professional work. However, I do not agree with this school of thought because of the reason elucidated below.
On the other hand, the advocates of conventional classes say that it is not feasible to clear doubts in online classes and therefore, it is required to attend classes at the school. This is because, for a clear understanding of a concept, learners have to ask questions from their instructor to clear issues they are facing. To illustrate, I purchased an online course to learn a programming language, however, there were many issues which were not clear to me and therefore, I had to join classes at a local school to learn the programming language thoroughly. Therefore, I believe that this school of thought is preferable because regular lectures in the classroom are necessary to fully understand concepts.
In conclusion, the lectures available on the internet can help people to save time, I think that to clear the doubts it is essential to attend lectures in the classroom.
