Question: In the last decade, there has been a great increase in the number and variety of online courses available to adults. This has been welcomed as a great opportunity by many students, however, other students see these courses as less effective than classroom teaching. What are the advantages and disadvantages of studying an online course?
 
With the dint of advance technology in education field, online based courses have been increasingly popularized especially in the mature aged demographic. The favouritism of web-based learning courses is primarily based on its flexibility course structure and deliver method while some disagree to this method because of the lacking of physical social interaction. 
The flexibility of online learning courses has eliminated the distance and time obstruction, particularly for the working class, parents and people with mobile difficulty. This learning platform allows students to access learning materials and lectures provided by professional educators based on their own time preference to suit their work hours. There is certainly no limitation to where students could engage with the program even across continents as long as they have access to computer with internet access. Without the need to attend classes physically, working adults are able to advance their knowledge after working hours and parents can still take care of their young  children while learning from home, broadening their opportunities to learn as adults.
In contrast to the proponent, traditional education supporters claim that online courses are a form of social isolation. Despite its convenience this learning method requires an enormous effort of self-discipline and self direction to follow the course delivery and complete the coursework by themselves, a sole management type of learning process. The option to learn from home isolates one-self from experiencing the benefit of team working and chances to open their minds with different ideas and opinions through traditional learning processes. Some course which require physical demonstration and practical exercises for example acupuncture, physiotheraphy and drawing can be difficult, inefficient and easily be misinterpreted by students through online learning material without educator’s supervision.
