Online Classes are a combination of video recordings and live lectures with course reading and tests. They are generally conducted using a virtual portal through which students gather reading materials, interact with teachers and classmates, view grades, and monitor progress.
In general, many online classes are self-paced, and students can choose the time slot to study. In some cases, these classes also provide a particular schedule and the student is required to be available in order to maximize their learning. Some examples of such online courses are MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) offered by various organizations.
This type of class got a boost during the pandemic. With the global spread of the disease COVID-19, all the educational institutes had to shut down and were forced to conduct classes via the internet. But to avail the benefits of these classes it is recommended to have a good stable internet connection.
Like traditional classes, online classes can have a varied workload depending on the course’s difficulty. Online classes also allow the user to take up more than one course at a time. It allows them to maximize their productivity. This way, the user can plan their time that will enable them to balance work, school, and family.
