Online courses and its effect on education remains a major topic due to the evolution oftechnologies in modern days and especially, the recent global lockdown. Butnura et, al.(2021, p. 2) stated that “online education has the potential to transform the education systemby expanding educational opportunities, transforming student populations and encouragingthe development of new pedagogical methods.” This essay will evaluate the effectiveness ofonline education in our modern world.To begin with, students who take online courses have more flexibility in their schedules andspend less money on their education. They can learn the courses and subjects they want attheir own pace. This provides learners with a fantastic opportunity to learn new skills andexpand their knowledge while remaining in their own environment. For example, a Nigerianstudent seeking a United Kingdom Business Management degree does not have to travel tothe United Kingdom and bare the costs that comes with such as travel expenses andaccommodation. Another example is my current experience where I am comfortably doingmy daily job while Unicaf's flexible learning alternatives is helping me progress in my career.“Online Teaching Is No More an Option, It Is a Necessity” Shivang (2020).According to Murphy (2020), during the pandemic and lockdown, education did not stop.Instead, it was relocated online. Virtual learning tools and software, such as virtual tutoringplatforms and learning management systems were embraced by schools and institutions.Some of the major benefits of online education as stated by Surbhi and Anil, (2013) is that;it improves skills with little or no disruption to work or personal obligations,it takes advantage of the adaptable structure by customizing a curriculum to meet yourspecific goals and schedule,study in a relaxing and productive setting makes easier,conversations and real-time chat are available through interactive technology to helpstudents learn more effectively, andtechnical assistance and academic counseling are available to aid students throughouttheir study.
