Ten Benefits of Online Courses for Learners in Ireland

By Carla Jack

Non-traditional learning formats such as evening classes, distance learning and online courses have a high success rate, and are growing in popularity throughout Ireland. If you are considering online training, here is a helpful list of benefits you will gain when taking advantage of a flexible learning course.

  1. Training from any location Whether you’re a parent of young children, a frequent traveller or a busy professional with a demanding work schedule, online courses offer a great way to learn while maintaining a balanced lifestyle. These classes allow you to log on from the location that suits you. Provided you have Internet access, you can attend classes from wherever you choose with minimal disruption to your other commitments.
  2. Anonymity Participating online means you can control interactions with greater ease and have more time to think about how to phrase the questions you wish to ask. Being anonymous allows you to do this without feeling self-conscious or intimidated.
  3. Extra support is available online Chat rooms and forums help you and your fellow learners with your studies outside of class time without disrupting your respective schedules.
  4. Constant, convenient availability Course material is accessible online at any time of the day, at any point in the week. This means you can review your notes whenever it is convenient and you are feeling alert and focused. It makes catching up on missed lectures easy as well.
  5. Instructors and Institutes of the highest quality Just as your own location is flexible with online courses, so is the location of the Institute offering the course and the instructor facilitating it. When using online training, you get the opportunity to study at the Institute of your choice, regardless of how far it is from your home. Skilled instructors are available for chats and email conversations, meaning the channels of communication are always open between learners and educators.
  6. Increased computer literacy Another benefit of this training platform is that many learners become more “tech-savvy”, due to increased online interactions and greater familiarity with online tasks.
  7. Learning at your own pace If you are a slower learner or have limited time in which to attend online classes, you can work through the course material at a rate that suits you, without having to worry about the rate at which your classmates are learning.
  8. No paper, no printing You’ll be submitting your projects via email or a network. This negates the need for a printer or frequent trips to a printing shop. Paper-free learning is simple, streamlined and clutter-free learning!
  9. Environmental benefits Online learning is an eco-friendly learning option! Without the need to drive or take public transport to classes, you are reducing the carbon emissions your vehicle would produce, and the less paper you use, the kinder it is to the environment.
  10. Pursue the career of your choice Online training is not restricted to IT-related courses. Law, Engineering, Business Studies and Humanities are just a few of the exciting fields offering non-traditional learning opportunities like accredited online courses in Ireland!
