Now listen to part of a lecture on the topic you just read about.
In many ways, online education may be a revolution of sorts. As opposed to what critics say, advanced technology has the means to systematically ensure a positive and fruitful learning experience. Its advantages, in the long run, will surely outnumber its disadvantages. As time goes on, more "netizens" will realize the great potential there is in the vast array of new virtual educational methods. Online learning is now the latest frontier for educators to push for greater advances in passing knowledge and skills on to students.
One advantage of online education is that teachers and administrators can easily test and measure their Internet-based courses, as well as tell if their students have earned credits or a degree. The system they have set up is very straightforward. It can quickly check student progress and clearly reveal learning outcomes.
