Education is a primary issue in the world and it needs to be improved

Online classes must continue to be offered as an alternative to traditional schooling to provide students the education they deserve. Thesis Student Costs "... extra fees for campus activities, labs and equipment, health care, and other services. Nor do they have to pay for room and board, which can add thousands of dollars annually to students' college bills, or the costs of commuting and child care" State Costs The ADJC has maximized the ability to offer higher education to its population statewide while minimizing the cost of on-site classes and full-time instructors with the use of technology and the Internet "Cheating is one of the biggest problems facing academia today and includes any instance in which a student breaks the rules for an assignment or test to gain an advantage over fellow classmates" (J. W. Weier (Ed.), 2007) Face-to-face Interaction The 2002 NEA policy statement notes that face-to-face opportunities are critical and advised against arrangements in which students receive their education through distance learning and rarely meet in an actual school building (Nitkin, 2009) Online Education Dropout Rate Children who could not attend school could participate in schoolwork by tuning into the radio. Interactive teaching programs are invented While online education may not promote face-to-face interaction ultimately, distance learning provides the convenience and flexibility that many students need in their busy schedules. Therefore, online education must continue to be offered as an alternative to a traditional schooling to provide students the education they deserve. Dropout Question Why do you think students dropout? Cheating and Plagiarism Poll Would you consider taking online courses? (Online education, 2010) However, there are established methods that prevent plagiarism However, healthy, social interaction does not necessarily require face-to-face communication. Hajdukiewicz's student, Angie Led to universities offering online courses FLVS was the first public statewide online education program in the U.S. (Online education, 2010) (Online education, 2010) (Online education, 2010) and Involved in a large amount of activities
Caregivers to children or ailing family members
Have full-time jobs
Cannot commute or move to a dormitory "[The flexibility online education provides] is of particular importance to students who have young children, who are caring for ailing or elderly family, who have full-time jobs, or live too far from campus to commute but cannot afford to move to a dormitory" (Online education, 2010) (S. M. Alters (Ed.), 2010) Work at their own pace Edward, the superintendent of a school in North Carolina, believes there is a "digital disconnect" for kids that make it feel as if they are going back in time when they go to school ("North carolina school", 2010) "Reading about Angie really slowed down the cadence of life, and made me appreciate many of the smaller things. Until now, I guess I thought of everybody (including myself) as a name on a list... But Angie's death has made the entire class so much more human to me" (Nitkin, 2009) "Smart black kids across America are choosing not to speak up in class every day, even when they know the right answer, because it's not worth the social suicide" (Mangu-Ward, 2012) ( (Nitkin, 2009) Many low-income young adults wish to go to college and can go with the lower costs of online education (Nitkin, 2009) (Online education, 2010) Cut-and-paste feature Turnitin.com, one of these online services, checks students' papers against several billion Web sites, past papers turned in along with books and encyclopedias (J.W. Weier (Ed.), 2007) "Honor codes place the responsibility not to cheat on the student... Because the cheater has been made aware of the rules, penalties in honor code schools can be strict" (J. W. Weier (Ed.), 2007) Opportunities Advanced Placement (AP)
International Baccalaureate (IB) Advanced courses in at least four subjects are unavailable to as many as a quarter of high schools' students because of lack of qualified teachers, low student interest, and scheduling conflicts for students (Espejo, 2009) What is online education?
