6 advantages of following an online course

Attending online meetings, courses, get -togethers, concerts, and theater performances; these are just a couple of activities that are part of our daily life nowadays. Through the “world wide web” we are creatively finding solutions for different aspects of life. Online learning and attending webinars, workshops, and lessons are especially high on our agenda. What are the benefits of this? We will explain.

More flexible than ever

Learning in your own time, tempo, and environment increases productivity. You feel more fresh, present, and alert because you don’t have to travel or stress about being on time. You are more flexible. The self-led lessons offer the most flexibility, but real-time lessons are also a bit more relaxed than usual. You sit in your own environment: on the couch, in the park, or on the balcony. Delightful!

Undutchables 6 advantages of following an online course

You can join anytime

You can follow online lessons anytime. You only need a laptop, PC, or iPad with access to the internet and potentially also headphones or earbuds. “I live too far away,” or ”It is difficult to drive back and forth,” and other such excuses cannot be used anymore!

Customized for each individual

When you follow online courses you have the possibility to learn in your own time and tempo. For people that are very busy and are therefore unable to move through the material as quickly this is ideal, of course. It also offers the possibility to spend extra time and attention on the topics that take a bit longer to master. In addition, you can also communicate more easily with the teacher; there is plenty of time and room allowed for this.

Saves time and money

You don’t have any travel time, so also no traffic jams, stoplights that always work against you, or bridges that open and block the way. The time that you save because of this can then be used to start the day peacefully. You can leisurely eat breakfast, take the dog for a walk, and jump in the shower. That way you can start your lesson refreshed! Or pick up that hobby or sport again. You always have leftover time. It is also good for your wallet. You don’t have to spend money on train tickets, gas, and parking fees.

There is more interaction with others

When you follow online courses in your own trusted environment you dare to ask more questions and show more of your personality. For example, you might participate in the discussion or dare to share stumbling blocks that you run into sooner. It sounds contradictory, but distance creates unity in many instances.

Thanks to the extensive functionality of online classes you can also work together online just fine. For example, there are break-out rooms: working together in smaller groups in another setting. You can also share your screen with the group with just one click of the mouse, which allows your group members to view the documents on your computer along with you. No more hassle with uploading and downloading.

Lessons are recorded

Certainly not unimportant: The lessons can be recorded! This has become pretty standard now for webinars or online lessons. They are then put online so that you can watch them again later. Handy!

Enough reasons to participate in online courses, webinars, trainings, and workshops. What is stopping you? Turn on your laptop and go! Online courses or trainings also look good on your CV. So what are you waiting for?
