Classroom vs Virtual Classroom

ProsCons
Virtual environment (online attendance)
  • Removes any geographical limitations
  • Learners can work from the comfort of their own home
  • More cost effective (savings on travel and accommodation)
  • Learners who may be more reticent in the classroom can be more involved by asking the tutor questions over the chat function.
  • The virtual environment doesn’t suit every type of learner
  • Some learners experience anxiety about the transition to a virtual environment
  • Greater discipline is required
  • Less opportunities for peer-to-peer learning
  • Reliant on internet connectivity of participants
Classroom (physical attendance)
  • Removes home/work-based distractions
  • Learners can interact with the tutor and other learners
  • Creates a sense of community with other learners
  • The total cost of learning is potentially greater as other costs such as accommodation and travel need to be factored in.
