I think it depends on the subject. Some subjects can be easy for lecturers to explain and us students to understand, but some can't since they are too difficult or require discussion.
Tbh, I loved it while we had online classes 😂 That meant, I could go back home and follow the lectures, but also I wasn't forced to deal with people and sit in one place for hours when I feel miserable (period khm khm lol) 😅0
I teach at a college and I had to switch to online teaching halfway through the spring 2020 semester. The students were not motivated and really did not learn much. Some chested on the exams and some just dropped out of the class. On my final I put in a last question whether the students like online or live instruction and 95% like the live instruction.1
Depends on your personality, learning style and schedule. If it is a subject you are weak in I recommend live instruction.0
What Girls & Guys Said
Yes! I can do my lessons at my pace and don't have to suffer through long winded and boring lectures.0
For many subjects I prefer it. I don’t like having to rush to get to a physical location.
But some classes like hands on courses I think are more beneficial to be in a classroom.0
The instructors seem to believe you're available 24/7 if it's an online course and they tend to schedule proctored exams and meetings on random days.
On top of that, they inundate you with pages upon pages of emails. Then there are assignments that need to be turned in and instead of handing them a paper, you have to spend 20 minutes logging on the school site through a 5 step authentication process, then uploading your paper in whatever particular format the instructor requests. Depending on the subject, this could involve having to photograph an assignment, email it to yourself, download the photos, reformat to the instructor's liking, then log in and upload. It's horrendously time consuming.
