Why is Online Learning so Popular?

 

We can all thank the internet for making our lives just a little bit easier – from buying our groceries to doing our banking, nearly anything can be done online these days. So, it’s no wonder that so many people are choosing to study on the internet. Why is online learning so popular, and why should you consider it? Find out below.

 

Flexibility and Ease

 

Most online courses give you the opportunity to work at your own pace, meaning that you can schedule study time around your other life commitments. This way, you’ll never have to worry about being late to class, studying last-minute for that important test, or missing family events because you have a lesson to attend.  It doesn’t matter if you use a laptop, desktop, or tablet – you can take advantage of a course that allows you to complete study from any device that has an internet connection. Imagine being able to learn at home, on the go, or even while travelling!

 

Less Distractions

 

For most of us, the idea of a busy classroom means distractions everywhere. Being able to study a course online allows you to eliminate these distractions. Now, you can have complete control over your work space – do you prefer studying in silence, or with your favourite songs playing in the background? Maybe you work better at a desk, or perhaps you can’t resist the comfort of lounging back on your couch. With online learning, you can choose how you’d like to study and tailor your environment to be your most productive self.

 

Accessibility

 

In today’s world, we like to do things with as little effort as possible. It’s not necessarily because we’re lazy (okay, some of us are lazy,) but it more likely has something to do with the fact that we’re busier than ever these days. That’s where the internet makes learning much easier. By having all of your course materials, assignments, and trainers accessible from one place, you’ll end up saving a lot of time and effort.

 

Forget losing worksheets, lugging around a bag full of textbooks or going out to buy your own course materials – having an online database gives you access to your entire course, whenever you need it. With 24/7 access, you don’t even have to wait for marking – you can submit your work and move on!

 

Enrol Anytime

 

The greatest benefit of online learning is that you can enrol anytime. That means no intake dates – you can begin your course when it’s right for you.

RPL Certificate IV in TESOL

“Because I’ve begun volunteering in Cambodia I wanted to improve my knowledge and skills in teaching English to non-native speakers, so I looked around at the kinds of courses available. The local universities all offered four-week, full-time courses, but it seemed like a step backward to pretend I didn’t already know quite a bit about teaching English and have to ‘start from scratch’. I looked at a few online courses and found that TESOLAU was one of the few, if not the only, provider offering both a Cert IV in ESL as well as a certificate in IELTS training. Within minutes of filling in the contact form on their Web site, I received a phone call from Lyn who asked me about my background and said that it would be possible to create a customised program where my previous coursework and experience were recognised. The staff were more than accommodating, adjusting the tasks and feedback to suit my schedule and being flexible about daytime and evening videoconferencing sessions.”

"I am still in China, having taught English here at a University for one year and am now settled into my second year with an offer to extend another year. I am so grateful for your assistance and so pleased I did your course. It has enabled me to hit the ground running, making it easy to prepare lessons and delivering them at the right level. It seems I am quite popular with my classes being over-subscribed each Semester. So to come here was a very good move for me. I am enjoying China. I work only 4 afternoons each week so I travel each 'long weekend' and holidays. I love my students. They are motivated, bright and respectful."

"Recently I completed a 140-Hour International TESOL course with the director of studies Ms Lynette M. Kim. She is an excellent teacher enabling her students through sharing her vast experience and practical skills. Her lessons are informative and in practice work well to not only give the skills needed but the confidence required to enable us to make a difference to those who are endeavouring to become fluent in English as a second language. After completing the course I am keen to put my newfound knowledge into practice. I wish to thank Ms Lynette M. Kim for giving me a new direction and the confidence to take it."

"I have just completed my TESOL Cert IV online course and I loved it. The units where fun, informative and challenging. If I got stuck on a question there would be plenty of support to answer any questions and I would have no trouble in completing the tasks. After I completed the course in my own time, I had an interview with a school, and now I'm leaving for my new teaching career in China tomorrow! Overall I would say it was: easy, great fun & rewarding... especially if you love adventure."
