    Now that everything, including studying, is going online due to the pandemic, I can't help but wonder if some students will acquire quality knowledge and skills that will enable them to provide essential services in future.

    For instance, who wants to be attended by a doctor who studied online? Tricky, right? I think the education sector should exempt some courses like medicine, engineering, nursing and any other course that requires practical/ technical learning and allow the students taking those courses to physically attend classes.

    I feel like online classes aren't good at all.
    Children are not at all focused on studies because of lack of fear of grades.

    Students disturb teachers while studying and disturbing others neither studying themselves nor letting others

    Teachers despite their hardwork are not able teach the subjects

    How can the practical subjects like Accounts be taught online ?

    From the little experience I had,I think online learning is one of the best way to received better lesson.But if you can take a look at this you will fine out that this seems to be the best for adult,for instance if a child is been educated online there is no way such child can receive personal decipline from his or her tutor if he miss out of something.physical learning has more influential power than online learning.Thou I know learning online seems to be more flexible than offline learning so its better you made a choice that you see will never affect you nagetively in chosing the source of your learning

    As a student myself, I have actually found myself preferring in-person classes over virtual ones because of how hard it is to focus during virtual ones. While it's great that I get more free time at home, I don't think it's worth it if it means that I'm going to do worse in school.

    There are always pros and cons to everything. Personally, I think online learning is not that bad because it gives me the ability to re-watch lectures, google notes/definitions quickly, and save a lot of time. Although my experience may not suit others, especially those who are not as prone to motivating and working alone, I think learning independently forces an individual to have a deeper and greater understanding of the topic alone, rather than depending on teachers or professors. Ideally, if we were able to combine online and in-person classes, it would definitely help transition everyone's experience into technology and self-learning.

    You know.. Here in my country online education is a mess, they are so unorganized with this thing. If we all knew what to do with the online education we could've made education something that you would actually like and enjoy. Online education at its best would beat anything else that has to do with education. The wrong thing here is that people are not ready for it.

    When I was thinking about furthering my education last year, online courses were the reason I decided to proceed. I am an older student in my 40's, which made me feel a bit insecure about in-person classes. I definitely would have not gone back to school without the online courses being a stipulation.

    After being a student for a year, I am loving the way that I am able to learn. I can do my work whenever I have the time. That is huge for a lot of people. I have such a positive experience with online classes that I cannot say anything bad about it.

    I am an honor's student with a 3.7 GPA, only because I have made school my number one priority. A lot of people have implied that online courses are easier in some way. That is a total fabrication. I have done it both ways and realized it is the exact same content. Presentation is the only difference. Otherwise the only thing that is difficult is making yourself do something when you don't want to.

    Go to school is not just to learn but also to meet and interact with people. Learning is much easier when in the classroom because you interact physically and share ideas together. I won't say the same for online class because there won't be an effective communication.
