Learning Center Experience
You have made the decision to expand your knowledge and career opportunities and are going to pursue a degree in higher education. Congratulations! Now it's time to consider which type of educational platform fits your lifestyle: traditional classroom or online. Here's some information on both options to help guide your decision in selecting an online or a traditional classroom degree program.
Before you choose, consider the benefits of each type and which best reflects your lifestyle.
A powerful advantage of traditional classroom learning is its multi-sensory appeal. You can listen to an instructor, view videos or PowerPoint presentations, participate in face-to-face group discussions, and ask questions along the way. If you struggle to focus, the exchange of dialogue that exists in a classroom setting can help you stay engaged and retain knowledge.
In addition, the sense of community and face-to-face interaction experienced in the classroom can help you build personal and professional relationships with peers and faculty. You may find the connections you make in class to be significant resources throughout your studies and later on in your career.
While an online education can be just as academically demanding as a traditional classroom, keep in mind that the flexibility of online education can be a challenge for people who struggle with self-discipline. If you are the type of person who thrives on deadlines and works best in an organized setting, you will need to work on these skills. Many times, academic advisors can help.
As you can see, there are advantages to both traditional and online degrees and education.
Only you can decide which model is best for you. Kaplan University offers both traditional and online platforms. Contact a Kaplan University advisor to further discuss the benefits of each.
