The word “college” might make you think of students hanging out in dorm rooms or gathering for classes in enormous lecture halls.

Online vs. Traditional Education: What You Need to Know

But that depiction is becoming increasingly out-of-date as technology provides for more and more ways to learn. In fact, online and distance learning has steadily grown in popularity among college students, but does that mean it’s a good choice for you? In order to help you answer that question, take some time to compare and contrast traditional versus online education. Comparing online versus traditional education Both online education and its traditional counterpart have pros and cons, so it’s important for students to understand what to expect before they step foot—or log into—the classroom. Online vs. traditional education: Flexibility One of the key components to consider when weighing the options is the amount of time you have every day to dedicate to schoolwork. Is online education good or bad? And is this really the right question? For the past twenty years, I’ve heard this question asked many times about online education.

Is online education good or bad? And is this really the right question?

It might be tempting for enthusiasts to say “of course it is good,” but I see this as a kind of “trick question.” We should consider asking this question in the context of the traditional classroom. Have our experiences in traditional classroom been stellar? All of us have had great classes in traditional settings and perhaps some that were not.

Rule No. 1 for Parents Doing ‘Crisis Schooling’: Take a Deep Breath

“One of the biggest lessons home schooling has taught me is flexibility,” she said. “If you think it’s time for your kids’ writing lesson, but they’re bouncing off the walls and need to create an obstacle course inside the house to burn off energy, you can change direction.” Use your discretion, too, on how much schoolwork you make your children do. When I saw that my 5-year-old grasped a particular literacy concept the other day, I didn’t make her do the extra three sheets of practice.

“I’m not saying ignore the assignments,” said Barbara Stengel, Ph.D., a philosopher of education and professor emerita at Vanderbilt University, but during a crisis, parents “don’t need drill and practice for the sake of drill and practice.” It can help when the teacher explains that school is still happening — it’s just happening at home now.

Teachers and Students Describe a Remote-Learning Life

Sometimes I’m not even motivated to do my work. I am a good student, I have a 3.5 gpa but everything is on you now. – Casey Malone, Milford, Conn., Westfield State University Being at college, I was able to forget the sometimes-traumatizing moments I lived through as a teenager. But now, every part of my childhood home reminds me of the past I’ve tried very hard to move on from. I know I should be grateful simply to have a roof over my head and relative financial security at a time like this, but it’s hard not to let myself get sucked down the rabbit hole of my high school mental health challenges that seemed so far gone while I was living on my own at college. – Kelsey Bonham, Washington, Colgate University.
