I think this is one of the most common misconceptions about online learning.
Don’t make the mistake of choosing an online course or class simply because you think it will be easier than a traditional class. The truth is that students in which have taken both traditional and online classes have said that they are surprised at just how challenging online classes are.
Online learning provides a much different environment. Some people can find this aspect challenging. What may be easier to learn online for one could prove to be more difficult for another person.
Online learning may be better for someone who is self-disciplined and who can work better on their own. Overall, it isn’t easier – but it surely is an independent way of learning.
