Nowadays people do not have to go to schools because there is an alternative which is called e-learning. They simply sit in front of their computers and acquire knowledge in a very modern, different way. However, it has its advantahes and disadvantages.
First of all, when you decide on e-learning you do not go to school and get up early in the morning to catch a bus to university or school. You turn on your computer in the most convenient time for you. Sometimes of course there are some on-line lectures when you have to sit in front of your computer at a given hour.
Secondly, you do not see the teachers which can be good for you because you are not stressed and you learn at your own pace. In addition, you spend less time learning and everything is much shorter than in a normal school. You take breaks when you want and do not have to wait for anybody.
Another important advantage is that you do not carry heavy bags. All the material that you need is right there in your computer. At school you usually must have plenty of different coursebooks, things to write with and other stuff like your second breakfast. Moreover, you also do not have to pay for all those books as well as the tickets to school.
On the other hand, e-learning has also some disadvantages. Firstly, your eyesight becomes poorer and poorer. Sitting a lot of time in front of a computer screen makes you tired and damages your eyesight. The next disadvantage is that sometimes when you do not understand something, you do not have anyone who would explain more difficult things to you. Of course, you can always write an e-mail to an e-teacher but it is not the same.
Moreover, e-learning seems to be boring. You always do the same things every day, you always learn individually. When you learn at school you can work in groups, teams and you often watch some short films, discuss different things and you have contact with other people. When you decide on e-learning you cannot talk with your friends.
To sum up, I believe that for some people traditional learning is better and for others e-learning seems to be a perfect solution. To my mind, I would never resign learning at school because I would miss the contact with my friends and the traditional methods of learning.
