E- learning today provides a quality alternative to on-the-ground courses. It offers students greater flexibility as to time and place as most courses are offered asynchronously, meaning students can take them at any time of the day or night.

The current challenges facing traditional colleges and universities, including higher tuition, budget cuts, and course shortages, have caused many students to search for alternatives. With nearly three million students currently enrolled in fully online degree programs and six million taking at least one online course as part of their degree program, online education has clearly become one of the most popular higher education alternatives.

All of this means that students, from working professionals to recent high school graduates, find many reasons to take all or some of their courses online.

There are some advantages of  E-learning

Variety of programs and courses:  They can also earn every academic degree online, all the way from a career certificate to a doctorate.

Lower total costs: Online programs can be a more affordable option  there are no commuting costs, and sometimes there is also not any required course materials such as textbooks because those are often available for free online.

More comfortable learning environment: there are no physical class sessions. Lectures and other materials are electronically sent to the student, who will then read them and complete assignments. Students will not have to fight traffic, find parking spaces, leave work early to go to class, or miss important family time.

Career advancement: Students can take online courses and even complete entire degrees while working, while in-between jobs, or while taking time to raise a family. This academic work will explain any discontinuity or gaps in a resume as well.

Improve your technical skills: Even the most basic online course requires the development of new computer skills, as students learn to navigate different learning management systems (LMS) and programs. The skills students learn to participate in their online courses translate to many professions, including creating and sharing documents, incorporating audio/video materials into your assignments, completing online training sessions, etc.

Immediate Results and Feedback: Most E-learning technologies integrate online test series and other tools to more rapidly evaluate the pace of learning.
