Virtual Schooling – The Future of Education
Is virtual schooling the future trend of schooling and will it change the face of education for future generations? Online schooling has become increasingly popular over the last decade and is quickly becoming one of the key options available to students.
Students can sign up for courses online and then start them immediately. Students can also choose their own schedules and do their studies between part-time jobs and other responsibilities that they may have. It is by far the best option for people that are on the go. People today are busier than they ever have been and high school courses online work perfectly into anyone’s schedule.
For most students, there is no difficult transition involved when starting a course online. We have become a technological society and most of us feel confident working with desktops, laptops, iPads and cell phones. Introducing online courses just seems like a natural occurrence to most students.
Virtual schooling has now become mainstream and it is estimated that enrolment for online courses has been growing by approximately 30% a year. This type of learning is suited for any type of student including rural students that only have a limited amount of course selection available, anyone with transportation problems, busy students in need of a flexible schedule, students that prefer learning at their own pace at home, or anyone that needs a few extra credits.
Virtual schooling is the wave of the future and it’s expected that within a few short years approximately 50% of all of the courses offered in secondary schools will be taken online.
