You are considering to enroll an institution of higher learning online. No matter whether you’re just out of high school, a returning student or a late starter, the motives to go for it are many. But a quick search of problems related to online studies produces thousands of hits. Don’t be discouraged after a glance, take a better look. Some of the credible issues raised in 2014 have become obsolete, most of all technological.
Most of the others boil down to a few. It is hard to self-organize may be the most common, coming in myriad forms. Yes, it is hard. But It is also hard not to go to all the parties once you become acquainted with everyone on campus. Weed through the difficulties as they are listed, the group then, and evaluate them.
We also boiled the problems down and here they are, in a few groups.
… Boring, Isolated, Non-Motivational, Leads to High Attrition Rate and Dropouts
It is true that studying for an Online Business Academy level, you handle the work yourself, largely without the typical back-and-forth. That, however, allows you to study at your own pace and it is one of the key perks that fuels the growth of remote education.
Instead of sitting in class at set times, you are flexible to work, train, or pursue other interests. It also builds the character – someone capable of completing studies alone is by default someone capable of organizing things. Employers are increasingly aware of this.
Additionally, the fact that you study on your own doesn’t mean that you live alone. You can study in the middle of a party, though that isn’t the point. The point is that you can do other things and study at your convenience.
… Difficult to Adapt to
Frankly, with its demands, it is. But so is any “next step” in life. As mentioned above, as a remote student you need to settle into your rhythm and do the work without being told to do so. Is it more difficult than adapting to life on campus? That is up to the student to decide after measuring the pros and cons.
The global disaster of Covid-19 showed that everyone can switch to online work. Remote students just continued as they were. Further, the pandemic experience and the growing segment of 1-12 online education mean that more young people grow up with remote studies and face no dramatic transition with the start of higher learning. On the contrary, for them it is a smooth continuation.
… Technically frustrating
No, it isn’t, as long as you have access to decent internet. Stories of freezing platforms, excessive hardware, and “computer literacy” demands are thoroughly outdated. Yet they stubbornly stick around. Our platform will run on a run-of-the-mill modern mobile phone, tablet, or computer. It is also intuitive and easy to work, from unpacking to taking an assessment – exam.
… Not up to Standards of Classical Schools
If you prudently check the institution you’re considering for online studies, you will eliminate the risk of fraud. The Online Business Academy operates under standards guaranteeing that the levels you complete will be recognized globally. There is more information about what standards we operate under on our blog. With a huge investment, in terms of money and finance, as committing to studies, you should also familiarize yourself with the standards independently.
The answer to how to overcome these challenges is largely self-evident. You simply have to work, as for any reward. If you think of another, we’ll be happy to take it at email@example.com and answer it, for you and anyone else interested in acquiring a degree online.
