Surfing online is no longer something strange in our life. Except for searching information and communicating with friends, another online activity has become popular recently. That is online education.
Why could online education be accepted by the public within such a short period of time? Among other reasons, the quick development of the intemet should be an essential one, which makes all our dreams of attending class in the distance possible. Another underlying reason is the quick development of both society and technology. Today, modern science and technology is developing with lightening speed. To catch up with this development we all feel an urgent and strong desire to study. However, due to the great pace of modern society, many people are too busy to study full time at school. Online education just comes to their aid.
As far as I'm concerned, I appreciate this new form of education. It's indeed a helpful complement to the traditional educational means. It provides different learners with more flexible and versatile ways of learning. Most of all, with online education, we can seek our jobs and at the same time study and absorb the latest knowledge.
