The Internet has penetrated in every student’s educational process. However, to most students, if they are unable to get access to the guidance of a qualified teacher as well as the virtual world, they would be at a disadvantage in terms of studying. Therefore, schools will continue to be an indispensable part of the education in a long term.
For a majority of students, obtaining knowledge from the Internet is not easier than it might seem. If they are unaware of how to distinguish the valid data from all information online, their learning efficiency would be influenced to some degree. As a result, they will find it difficult to accomplish the study objectives, pass examinations, and may even graduate with low scores. Therefore students need guidance from teachers to help them in time and this can be provided much more easily with face-to-face communication.
Furthermore, distance education is an ineffective way to cultivate students’ interpersonal skills which they can get in a brick and mortar school. Students complete their tasks independently without opportunities to socialize with their peers, a consequence that they are less likely to build up a network of contacts, which may exert an adverse impact on their future career development. By contrast, those who learn from lectures at school can do a wide range of activities on campus such as playing sports and engaging in clubs. These experiences encourage them to build close social relationships.
In some cases, studying online may offer a perfect solution for some students, especially those who cannot afford to attend a good university, or need to study part-time. Under this circumstance, the Internet may be an acceptable alternative as it is much more flexible in comparison with schools’ lectures. Most high quality educational resources can be acquired easily and freely without geographical barriers as well as time limitation. The real situation, however, is that these sorts of students only occupy a small proportion and online studying is not the mainstream in educational domain.
In conclusion, although a certain number of students do produce satisfying results from online courses, the majority still need the guidance that schools provide to achieve a better performance. Therefore lectures will continue to be an essential teaching method in the future.
