Some people might look at an online class and wonder what’s so appealing about talking to people over a computer screen. We don’t mind that, but we do think it’s a bit sad that those people haven’t yet come to realise exactly how awesome online classes can be. We put together a preliminary list to help them out.
You can learn in your PJs
The last thing you want to do after a long day is go out and do something else. Or, at least, not if you have to stay in your work clothes. Honestly, would it kill them to put a bit of elastic in there somewhere? Online classes mean that you have a legitimate excuse to run straight home and PJ up. Everybody knows you learn best when your comfortable, but that doesn’t mean you wouldn’t get told off for turning up at night school in your nightie.
You can learn from people all over the place
If you go somewhere local to learn, there’s a limited sample of people available to teach you. That gets reduced further depending on the availability and level of both sides of the equation. By taking to the internet for online classes, you widen your pool significantly. If the best violin teacher in the world is in Chicago, then you can learn from Chicago. Sure, it might take more research then just going to the closest person, but you virtuoso career will thank you.
You always get the best seat
You remember when you were at school and there were a couple of seats that people always fought over? You’re not at school any more! Plus you don’t even have to that thing people do when they’re adults where they all pretend not to care about where they sit, but they all end up hating each other anyway. You can have the best seat in your house. Cover it with cushions and blankets. Delight in your own comfort. Put your feet up, look back on your school days, and laugh.
Online classes can be booked when it suits you
There are lots of classes to take just after work, and that’s fine for a lot of people. But how about if you work best between the hours of 10pm and 1am? Online classes are your friends. There’s also no need to give up other plans. Because you can work with people all over the world, it doesn’t matter if you only have time in the early afternoon, or if you only like to learn after dark. Whatever your quirk, there’s someone out there who’ll be able to work with it.
You only have to tidy up part of your room
If you found a tutor who would visit your home, you’d have to make a bit of an effort for them. It wouldn’t even be for them as much as it would be to help you save face. But guess what? Sometimes busy people don’t have time to pick up their floordrobe every time their maths teacher comes over. With online classes all you have to do is kick everything to the side so it’s just out of view of the camera and voila! You’ll look like a domestic god and/or goddess and nobody will be any the wiser.
