What are the benefits of using an online classroom?

When used effectively, online classrooms can increase communication, enable student-centered teaching, provide flexibility and can cost less than normal higher education facilities, according to the Open Education Database. Other benefits of online learning include a comfortable learning environment, a variety of programs and courses, and quick evaluation of students’ progress

Online classrooms are useful for learners who aren’t able to attend the lesson physically. This may be due to their life commitments (working part-time, for example) or the mode of transport. With the use of technology and the Internet, more people are able to learn.
