Face to face vs. Online learning course

When it comes to learning, there is no one-size-fits-all method. Some students prefer to learn independently, while others prefer to be in a more structured environment. However, face-to-face learning has been shown to be an effective way to learn knowledge and skills. This is because it often combines different ways of learning, such as writing, reading, discussion, presentations, projects, group work, film clips and demonstration. This allows students to learn in a way that best suits their needs and preferences. In addition, face-to-face learning provides opportunities for students to receive feedback and support from their peers and instructors.

An online learning course is one you take online using a computer, without being with a teacher or other students in a classroom. You have greater flexibility and can study from home. However, this also means you need to be more disciplined and motivated since you will not have someone physically present to remind and guide you. Most courses don’t need you to be online at a certain time of day or night, but you must actively participate in the course during the course time frame. This can be done through reading materials, discussions, group work and submitting assignments.

When it comes to the world of online learning versus face-to-face learning, the biggest differences have always been in terms of fostering connection and collaboration between learners. With the abrupt stop of face-to-face learning delivery, learning and development professionals have lost the positive social impact that comes with in-person interaction. While this is a valid concern, it's important to remember that the digital world offers its own opportunities for connection and collaboration. In-person social interaction does have a richness that might be hard to replicate online, but when it comes to the corporate world, online learning can be just as effective.

When it comes to education, one question that has always been debated is whether online or face-to-face learning is better. Each option has its own advantages. To better understand the two, it is important to highlight some crucial features of face-to-face learning, which are different in online learning.

One of the first differences is the setting in which the learning takes place. When learning face-to-face, students are in a physical classroom with their peers and teacher. This type of learning requires students to be present at a specific time and place. Online learning, on the other hand, can take place anytime and anywhere as long as the student has access to a computer and the internet.

Advantages of Online learning

  1. It is more affordable and saves time
  2. It is more scalable
  3. Access to training courses on your own terms
  4. Learning at your own pace with no meeting time
  5. More consistent than face to face learning
  6. Delivered by different instructors with same level of quality

Advantages of Face to face learning

  1. Face to face interaction with learning instructor
  2. Enables more effective non-verbal communication
  3. Ability to motivate, inspire and engage
  4. Ability to discuss, collaborate, practice and role play
