Online Classrooms vs. Traditional Classrooms
The Benefits of Online Courses
"Here are a few things I was thinking about."
(Get to the point!)

"Choosing between the two can be difficult."
(vague)

"What goes around, comes around."
(cliché)
"A traditional course provides more social interaction than an online course. "
(We can assume that the following paragraph will discuss the
social interaction
point in relation to subject B:
traditional courses
)

"Depending on one's ability to manage time, an online course can offer an accelerated pace of learning."
(We can assume that the following paragraph will discuss the
time management
point in relation to subject A:
online courses
)
Eliminate the use of "you" in this essay. "You" projects onto the reader and should be avoided in academic essays.
"You don't want to sign up for too many online classes."
One
should take
one's
time management abilities into consideration when signing up for online courses."

or:

A student
should evaluate
her
time management
skills before signing up for too many online courses.
