Question and answer
what are some simularities between online and traditional education?
education is gaining acceptance due to its easy and convenient nature. [ Students and elders are able to sit at the comfort of their home and study, without having to spend time and money on traveling and looking for teachers to help one with studies. Although one does not attend a physical campus, there are some similarities which can be seen in an online and traditional system of education. Assignments – assignments are a part of learning and are given to all students, irrespective of the fact that he/she is an online student or a student attending a regular class. One can expect to
complete assignments and reading, attending tests in an online classroom, just as in a regular classroom. Reference material – text books are common for both the online course and a regular course. Whatever be the medium of studies, one has to refer books to complete assignments and attempt exams/tests. Some online courses offer an option of purchasing an e-book for reference. Exams – tests and exams are used to test one’s understanding and retention of a particular topic/subject. It is usually given to students at a common interval, such as monthly, quarterly, half-yearly and annually. Even in an online course, there can be tests which a student is required to take up. Also, the test scores can be a part of the annual score card sometimes. Teachers – be it regular class or online class, seeking help from teachers/professors for clarification of doubts, discussing about a topic is needed. In both the types of classes, teachers will be available to help the students in any matter. Alternatives ways to contact them would be email. With many similarities between an online course and a regular course, the option lies with the students to choose the one which suits them best. ]
