The pros and cons of traditional learning, online classes and hybrid programs

By Remington College Posted November 6, 2020

Before, many people might have envisioned attending college to look like waking up in a dorm, walking across campus and sitting in a row of desks while a professor lectured—in other words, a traditional four-year college.

With the advance of technology and the current pandemic, however, the definition of “college” has changed for many people. Some people may have opened their eyes to the possibilities of online classes, and schools are devising ways to incorporate hybrid programs.

Even trade schools and technical schools are now offering exclusively online college courses and hybrid programs in addition to traditional classroom learning.

The added choices can be exciting to potential students, but it might also be overwhelming as they face choices as to where to enroll and what to study. The good news is there’s no right or wrong answer. Choosing the right class format for you is something that depends on your lifestyle, learning style and personal preferences. Check out some of the pros and cons of these various classroom styles.
