Advantages and Disadvantages of eLearning
There are many advantages to online and computer-based courses when comparing to traditional face-to-face courses, however there are few disadvantages too.
Some of the advantages are: Self-paced learning, self-knowledge and self-confidence, reduces travel time, develops knowledge of the Internet and computer skills, cost can be cheaper (I would say less expensive)
Some of the disadvantages are: Students can develop bad study habits (procrastination), slow Internet connection in some areas, hands on lab are usually deficient, some task can be complex and difficult to simulate.
