Being online is no longer something new or fresh in our life. To some extent, it hasbecome part of our daily life. We can do a lot of things online, such as searching for information and communicating with friends far away. Recently, online education has come into fashion.
The popularity of online education is due to its outstanding advantages. Firstly, it breaks down the barrier between time and space. One can conveniently study at home by accessing the Internet via computers at any time. Secondly, instead of reading those dull textbooks, one can enjoy colorful images, nice sounds and fascinating videos online, which will arouse great interest in his study. However, the disadvantage of online education is obvious. Sometimes there is a lack of sufficient interaction between students and teachers due to bad internet connection.
As the old saying goes, “Every coin has two sides.” It is true that online education is not well developed and has limitations. I still believe that with the further development of the Internet, online education will see a more promising future.
Surfing online is no longer something strange in our life. Except for searching information and communicating with friends, another online activity has become popular recently. That is online education.
Why could online education be accepted by the public within such a short period of time? Among other reasons, the quick development of the intemet should be an essential one, which makes all our dreams of attending class in the distance possible. Another underlying reason is the quick development of both society and technology. Today, modern science and technology is developing with lightening speed. To catch up with this development we all feel an urgent and strong desire to study. However, due to the great pace of modern society, many people are too busy to study full time at school. Online education just comes to their aid.
As far as I'm concerned, I appreciate this new form of education. It's indeed a helpful complement to the traditional educational means. It provides different learners with more flexible and versatile ways of learning. Most of all, with online education, we can seek our jobs and at the same time study and absorb the latest knowledge.
