    Hi Zahra

    Thanks for sharing this post. I have browsed the internet and landed on this sharing of yours. Great discussion. I couldn’t agree more on your points especially on the aspect to be able to meet different people from different part of the world in the Online Learning. Well, today, though cost of flying is dropping, it still requires significant resources to travel the world, interact and learn from people of different cultures or language. Yet, through Online Learning platform, we could accomplish that at rather low cost and at the comfort of our home, hence picking up many different perspectives.

    However, there is a little drawback I believe. Adapting to different culture requires effort. The individual must make the effort to learn and adapt to them. In the Online Learning platform, one can easily turn off the computer and run away from the adaptation. So the effort is still required even though it is much more viable today

    I hope that my viewpoint is acceptable to you. Thanks again.

    Hey Barbara, I love that you are an advocate for online learning. Unfortunately, many employers still see the traditional face-to-face courses as superior to online courses – this mentality needs to change, there are too many benefits associated with online courses for it to not!!
