There is no doubt that education is an essential part of every person’s life. Some people consider distance learning the most effective sort of education, while others do not agree with this point of view.
To my mind, online learning has numerous advantages. Firstly, such lessons usually cost not as expensive as private ones with teacher. Thus, it helps people to save a plenty of money and spend it on other useful things.
Secondly, distance learning provides people with the great opportunity not to waste their time. For instance, students should not get to the place where the lesson takes part because the computer is only thing they need to get knowledge.
Nevertheless, there are those who suppose that traditional way of getting education is more preferable for people. According to their opinion, a computer screen is a real obstacle and distractor in assimilating new knowledge. Information is perceived better when people have a direct eye-to-eye contact with their teacher.
Personally, I do not agree with the above opinion. I am convinced that for a person who is really determined in getting new knowledge the computer screen will not bring any difficulties. Moreover, there are a lot of extremely qualified teachers in the Internet which are impossible to find in small towns or villages.
To conclude, even though there are controversial points of view on the issue of methods of learning, I firmly believe that distance one is certainly the most convenient and beneficial for people.
