What Do 6 Million Online Students Know That You Don't?

Published: November 7, 2016

There are more than 6 million online students.1 What do they know that you don’t about ELearning and the virtual classroom? Maybe the many benefits of online learning:

There are lots of online programs. When online learning was first introduced back in the 1980s, it had few offerings and was used mainly by large corporations trying to trim their training budgets. Today, there are thousands of online courses and you can train for a wide variety of careers with the help of online learning. Whether you want to work in business, healthcare, information technology, or any other field, you’ll likely find some online programs to help you train for your career.

They are effective: In many cases, you can learn the same content through an online portal as you do in an actual classroom. In fact, more than 70 percent of academic leaders surveyed believe that online education is the same or better than face-to-face instruction.2

They are popular:  Distance learning is more popular than ever. Between the falls of 2012 and 2014, while campus-based enrollments declined, online learning saw a 7 percent increase.1 Why do you think they’re so popular?

·         Flexible: Attend virtual lectures at a time and place that fits your schedule.

·         Interactive: Communicate with your instructors and your classmates.

·         Private: If you’ve always been the type of person who hates speaking up in class, you don’t have to! Communicate through the written word and build your classroom confidence.

·         Commute-free: You won’t just save time and money when you learn from home; you also won’t need to plan for childcare or get time off from work.

They prepare you for a technological world: Online courses have become very user friendly and easy to navigate. There are portals and interactive tools designed to make your digital learning experience as stress-free as possible. And there’s a bonus to all that online learning: you also learn a lot about working with computers and the modern technologies you’d find in a modern business setting.

They could help you advance your career: You know that higher education could help you get a better job and make more money. But traditional higher education can be rigid, with degrees that take years to attain. The online classroom could help speed up the process so you can get into the career of your dreams more quickly.

At Charter College, we have a wide variety of online programs in Business, Healthcare, Information Technology, Legal Studies, and more. If you think an education could help advance your career but can’t fit campus-based instruction into your life, we’ve got you covered. Choose our online programs, with on campus support.
