Why learning online is so effective

Unlike classrooms, online courses put you in complete control. Need to stop, go back, and read again for mastery? No problem. Want to dig in deeper and search online to learn more on a topic that interests you? That's easy, too, when you are learning from your computer and not having to listen closely to a classroom instructor. Break for a meeting, an errand, or a family commitment? That's your call. You decide your pace, your time, your location.

When learning can flex around a student's needs, it infinitely increases their ability to absorb and retain the information.
