Despite the fact that online education is increasingly growing in popularity, there are still several myths and misconceptions surrounding it.
Many think online education is easier than traditional education. Students in online education do have more flexibility than in traditional settings, but they come with their own set of challenges, too. Online education isn’t easier, just different.
Some people also view online education as a lower quality education. Academic standards vary from school to school, but many institutions go through a rigorous certification process.
