People of all ages are now hooked up to online training. Suppose you are an employee and working in some company. You no longer have to struggle in driving all the way from your workplace to the training institute to learn some new course. This can be totally exhausting. Imagine being able to learn the same course but from the comfort of your home, sipping coffee after a tiring day at office. Wouldn't it be wonderful?
Many of the online courses are so designed that the student can complete the course at his or her own pace. You don't have a fixed schedule. This again can be very convenient for people who are busy and have a full time job. They can join a course and don't necessarily have to spend 1 hour each day on learning the course. Since, they can learn the course at their own pace and their own timings, they have the option to study for hours on weekends or when they are free. At other times, when they are very busy or just too tired, they can skip learning for that day. Isn't it very convenient? Yes, it is. That is why so many people love the convenience of online training.
At the same time, remember that there can be downsides to online training as well. One of the biggest problems is that the convenience and flexibility of online training, which is one of its biggest advantages, can sometimes turn into an immense disadvantage for you. How can that be so? Suppose you join a course. You don't have to follow any fixed schedule like going to the classes every day at a fixed time. You think it is wonderful that you can now study at your own pace and set your own timings.
However, the problem is that after a few days or weeks, you might not take as much interest in learning the course as before. You will just keep putting it off and get busy with other things. The end result can be that you would not be able to finish off the course even after many weeks or even months have passed.
