With advancement in technology and the high cost of living, it has become necessary for many students to work and study at the same time. Busy schedules often make it so difficult for some students to decide on whether to keep their jobs or complete their schooling. With that effect, there are some students who opt to drop out of school to keep their jobs. Nevertheless, these students have the option of getting their degree without ever stepping foot on physical campus. Such students may opt for an online degree program to keep up with their fast life style. It is therefore better for these students to have an online schooling instead of dropping the schooling idea completely. (Shoaf, 2007).
There are advantages and disadvantages of online degree programs and schooling. Studies have shown that teachers and students were very satisfied with the results they get from online classes, because of the opportunity for individualized teaching and learning. (Shoaf, 2007). Online learning is more flexible since one is able to study any time of day when they are free. Another advantage of online learning is the benefits accrued by the students with disabilities, or even students with religious believes and practices that prevent them from having long days in the school calendar. (Shoaf,2007).
Another advantage associated with online classes degree programs is that it they meet almost all students’ needs without leaving anyone behind. This is because students in a physical classroom may encounter challenges such as inadequate facilities or lack of contact with the tutor, particularly in large classes (Shoaf, 2007).
Despite all the benefits accrued from online schooling, some shortcomings exist. These include lack of opportunity for physical touch in the social interaction with other students, thereby making students isolated. In addition, these students miss some of the social activities such as art or music and sports. Therefore, these types of courses need to have modifications or alternative forms of platforms to allow for enhanced interaction with other students and their teachers (Shoaf, 2007).
The necessity of knowledge is increasing time for the different stages of life and also the specialty to develop a better work and improve the living standards in addition to having fun in life (Songhao et al., 2011). Another benefit of online schooling is to build an environment to serve people’s needs for gaining knowledge and skills to enlighten our society. It has become very important in a much easier way, for that reason, we are hoping to get some advantage from the high quality online schooling anytime, anywhere. This is because it is necessary for the right selection of knowledge that can meet people’s needs (Songhao et al., 2011).
On-line learning has not been overly successful partly due to lack of adequate communication facilities. The absence of the physical connection between the learner and the tutor makes communication quite complex. Misunderstandings that may be clarified through one on one contact become almost impossible to handle. This only acts to make it harder for the learner to acquire the knowledge he/she yearns for (Songhao et al., 2011).
To have an effective online schooling program, it is important to build a new environment for E-learning that is more effective to online education and teaching or rather the knowledge through an effective interaction between participants to have an appropriate and effective communication during the E-learning process (Songhao et al., 2011)
There are basic and important points to build on in order to have a successful E-learning capable of satisfying both students and their instructors to successfully achieve their goals in E-learning (Songhao et al., 2011) The main points for this success deals with how to have a strong and collaborative learning environment between teachers and the students. This effective communication has to ensure that these students are motivated to learn even during times of disturbance in addition to ensuring there is fast communication at the same time (Songhao et al., 2011).
Quite a number of recent studies have shown that successful and unsuccessful use of E-learning in education, and lots of e-learning processes had different outcomes due to the unknown and uncertain results arising from E-learning and the face to face instruction models. The two are differ mostly in terms of the number of students. Numerous studies have shown that the traditional classroom setting tends to have more students than the online module. Therefore, it is easier to tell which learning process is the most effective (Fetaji & Fetaji, 2009). Evidence has also shown that there are some beneficial developments in the outcomes of the E-learning attributed to the effective system planning (Fetaji & Fetaji, 2009).
Researchers also found out that there is need to have a successful E-learning by having multidimensional model standards that can ensure proper communication feedbacks used from the E-learning process is effective when planning this learning strategy. The reason that there are unsatisfactory results due to lack of knowledge from the learners and lecturers in this project have proven its failure. To solve this issue, the approach that deals with E-learning and its outcome have to standardize the guides for the E-learning and what is expected from learning outcome. This guide has to have the ability to evaluate E-learning programs comprehensively (Fetaji & Fetaji, 2009).
A successful E-learning process will require expert analysis and give the chance to have a clear comparison and evaluation for new future E-learning projects. Researchers have also created a tool to realize and make a comparison for different platforms for e-learning, such as Angel and Mood. The models are used to make comparison and evaluation of the E-learning process and output from it (Fetaji & Fetaji, 2009). This methodology will work its best on the E-learning project when applied in the correct way. It will also ensure that E-learning project achieves higher efficiency and the best result (Fetaji & Fetaji, 2009)
Statistics collected from many online schooling portals indicate that the need for the online courses and online degrees is increasing and actually serving a lot of students such that they cannot be in the same city where their school is located or even those with busy schedules due to their work. Most of the students utilizing the online programs are the graduate students more than the undergraduates. This may be attributed to the busy schedules these people are involve d in (Moloney & Oakley, 2010).
The initial idea of online learning was to enhance networking among learning institutions as well as support exchange programs. This in technical terms is described as Asynchronous Learning Networks (ALN). There is a huge percentage on increase in engagement in this learning process and there is an expectation of huge growths of nearly 20% in the coming years (Moloney & Oakley, 2010).
Sloan Consortium (Sloan-C) has worked with this learning process to ensure that it will have the best help to improve. This is because (Sloan–C) has worked to support the ALN this and had a huge improvement on the a research which has found out that online school has been a better option for many students who have highly enrolled for the programs especially those student in higher education (Moloney & Oakley, 2010).
In conclusion, online schooling is necessary for students in doing work and studying at the same time. In addition, it makes it easier for them to keep up with their lifestyle. However, there are some benefits/drawbacks that researchers have established and need to be addressed to develop e-learning further.
