Pros and Cons of Distance Learningby Evan M. Evan Murray A Graduate & Blogger
Distance learning is becoming more and more popular in universities and around the world. This research is devoted to the analysis of both positive and negative features of distance education.
Positive aspects include: access to education for a wide range of people; the opportunity to study at home; an opportunity for students to save on transportation, accommodation, textbooks, other books like educational novels kitabnagri.pk/mohabbat-ke-junoon-mein-novel-nadia-fatima-rizvi/ etc., as well as for universities to spend less on leasing lecture halls and salaries for large staff. Students can also save time by studying only those subjects that they think are necessary.
Other positive features are: the ability to check the information received and get feedback from the authors of the course; organization of training courses for working professionals with great convenience. In addition, distance courses form the ability to independently seek and process information and develop the need for self-education, which is necessary in the student's future career. The negative features of distance education include: lack of continuous live communication between the subjects of the educational process; not enough time to develop skills, revise the learning material kitabnagri.pk/kasa-e-dil-novel-riffat-siraj/; imperfection of the test system for assessing the knowledge gained; rapid obsolescence of lecture materials and, as a result, the need for their constant updating.
The need for final certification of students and constant moderation of the educational process, as well as the unpreparedness of the teaching staff of most universities to create distance learning courses create other serious problems. the need for their constant updating.

The modern world sets new vectors for the development of universities, in particular, the need to introduce more modern teaching methods, one of which is distance learning.
Distance learning involves remote interaction between a teacher and students. At the same time, the lecturer has the opportunity to communicate with students both online and offline. Students can also ask their own questions about the material they have studied and get feedback. Distance learning includes videos with recording of lectures, audio and video conferencing, chats, discussion forums. In addition, e-mail between students and teachers can be used.
The great popularity of the Internet and the widespread use of mobile information and communication technologies have significantly changed the social environment and social communication. This process has also affected the education system, in which an increasing share is given to distance education.
Currently, distance learning forms are becoming more and more popular. The number of courses offered online is growing rapidly, as well as the number of people looking to study remotely. In our country, these processes are just beginning to gain momentum. This is happening in parallel with the promotion of values such as freedom and self-expression, the implementation of which is facilitated by distance learning. An urgent problem is the analysis of the positive and negative features of distance learning in order to understand the mechanisms of interaction between students and teachers, carried out without direct contact, as well as to create the most effective model of the distance educational process.
In today's globalized world, distance learning is beginning to play a leading role in education.
Thus, distance learning has both its negative and positive aspects, which must be taken into account when developing courses aimed at distance learning. It is more suitable for part-time students, for teachers who need to improve their qualifications, as well as for people with disabilities. For full-time students, distance learning courses should be complemented by lectures and seminars, in which students should be given the opportunity to have live communication with both members of the teaching staff and their classmates.
