Online Education vs Traditional Education: An Employer's Point of View

/

/ by
We go to school to learn how to become a productive adult, to take care of ourselves. One of the best ways to take care of yourself is to land a great job but does a graduate have a better chance of getting a good job if they took online education classes or traditional education?

Let's look at the benefits from an employer's point of view...

Which Type of Classes Offer More Perks to Employers?



Current Information


In traditional classes you use books, books that are often not up to date. To update the books would require an entire re-write of the book, printing, and distribution, and this all takes time. By the time the new version of the book is printed it is already outdated.

Online classes can be updated daily, if necessary, to keep the information as current as possible. Students have the most up to date information.


Self-Starters


Traditional classes impose deadlines, a tutor is there to ensure you complete your tasks on time, and the only project you begin are the ones assigned.

When you begin online education you're sticking to deadlines, completing tasks on time, and have the initiative to begin projects on your own, no one is telling you to do so.

If employers favour those who are more dedicated they may well choose a person who embarked on an online education over someone who was traditionally educated.


Deeper Understanding of Topics


With traditional education there is a tutor on hand while in class to help with your understanding of the subject you're studying. 

Online classes also offer online tutoring which means that if you're ever struggling to understand a topic you can get the help you need to keep up with the course.


Contact FutureSchool now if you want to have what most employers would consider the best employee traits possible. 

You can learn what you need to get your degree and have current information on the topics covered, all with the flexibility of learning on your own time.

  2. Interesting read. As my kids get older I'm starting to realise just how much us parents need to stay in touch with new learning methods, so many more options these days! I think the self-starter skill is particularly valuable in today's super-competitive job market. #PoCoLo

    1. Totally, thanks Catherine. We do need to consider ALL the options these days. xx

  3. I love online learning, especially as it's more flexible - it can be such a chore to get to training sessions when you have work, kids, pets, etc, to sort out! x #pocolo

    1. Exactly, it certainly makes it easier, but you also have to be motivated! :)

  4. This is interesting because the new bright idea of our teen is to drop out of school and finish high school online. So far, we are against the idea, as we feel it is just her being lazy.

    1. You may be right, I think for younger teens they may well see it as an opportunity to get out of going to school! However, saying that sometimes online study might work better, as long as they're motivated to do it. :)

  6. I was discussing with a friend recently how little the traditional classroom reflects the real working world. I think the skills you discuss (discipline, research etc) are much more useful. #PoCoLo

  7. I did an online learning course at work and found it a really interesting way to learn new things. It was really flexible too!

    1. I think that's one of the best things about it, the flexibility, it means you can study whenever you feel like it, even if it's 2am! :)

  8. Hi Morgan, I like the thought of OnLine learning and have been encouraging our son to go down that path since he finished school. At the moment he is sort of practising doing Udemy courses to get the feel of doing something on his own. We did look into Open University courses, but they are so expensive and I don't feel he is ready yet. I did click on the link and checked out FutureSchool, and I must say that the prices are better, but he wants to study aomething computer orientated.

    1. That sounds like a great plan, I agree that Open University is very expensive though. I hope your son finds something that suits him. xx

  9. I've never done any online learning, but it would definitely be my preference for anything I needed to do these days - more flexible! #PoCoLo

    1. Exactly, it would be my preference too. :)

  10. I am eyeing up a history course online that I might do next winter - for me the advantage is I am in France and unless I want to do a course in French (which I don't) I do need to go online. #pocolo

    1. Ah yes, the overseas thing... that didn't even occur to me but yes. I hope you get to do that course. x

  11. I've done a couple of online courses — fantastic when you have little ones and you can't get away!! I must say though — I'm DREADING when they go to school and start bringing maths homework back home!! That's really not my bag at all — learning is one thing when you *like* the subject but when it's something of no interest I'd really struggle!! Thanks for hosting! #PoCoLo
