The environment of a virtual classroom is more engaging than a traditional in-person classroom. There are many benefits to this type of environment. Here are some of the advantages. You can interact with teachers and peers outside of school hours.
In a Virtual Classroom you can participate in group discussions, presentations, and projects with other students who live across the globe.
Some people may find that they have an easier time focusing on school work when they are alone, which is another benefit of the Virtual Classroom Environment
There are fewer distractions as there are no distractions from either peers or teachers when you’re on your own. Another advantage is that it’s much less expensive to attend college online because you don’t need to commute and pay for a dorm room. For instance, tuition at Stanford University for undergraduate degree programs range from $49,280 for California residents ($51,250 out-of-state) to $67,000 for international undergraduates . Online courses, however, cost just a fraction of these amounts. Tuition at Stanford costs $9,000 per year for an undergraduate certificate program while most online universities charge between $1,000 and $2,500 per semester (depending on how long the course lasts). A two-year associate degree could be completed entirely through an online university for about half of what it would cost to attend classes in person. Not only do you save money but also on gas and parking expenses.
Another advantage is that you’re able to access professors any time day or night by emailing them or calling their office line during regular business hours. Students have access to tutors 24/7 using chat functions and email services.
