By learning you will teach; by teaching you will understand. - Latin Proverb
Given all the prime advantages of online teaching like flexibility, convenience, ease of access and sharing etc, an online teacher is professionally satisfied.
Easier Access and Sharing of Information:
It’s obvious that any study resource or information in digital format is very easy to be accessed and shared.
Diverse Teaching Experiences:
The online medium of teaching gives a teacher an opportunity and experience to connect with students from different disciplines, backgrounds and cultures. Online teaching can thus take the teaching experience from a regional level to national level, and even further to an international level.
More Teaching Opportunities:
An education medium without any time and location constraints obviously paves the way significantly more opportunities for the teachers, as compare to the traditional classroom teaching.
Teaching through an online medium gives the instructor ability to connect with students located in diverse geographical locations, without any travelling overhead. This provides teachers with relatively more opportunities to teach.
Convenience, Time and Location Flexibility:
Online teaching doesn’t require any travelling overhead. A teacher can teach right while sitting at his/her home. Online teaching could thus be perceived as a work from home with flexible schedules.

Career advancement and hobbies:
Studying online gives you more flexibility. You can work and fit your work schedule (and your hobbies) around your coursework more easily; even more so if you are taking an asynchronous class: an online class where you don’t have to log in at a specific time for a live session but you can study and interact with your instructor and your fellow classmates at your own pace through, for example, the discussion forum.
Flexible schedule and environment:
By studying online, you choose your own learning environment that works best for your needs: be it your bedroom, your study, the café across the street, or your local gym, listening to your instructor’s lecture podcast as you run on the treadmill. Isn’t that awesome?
Lower costs and debts:
Studying online means that you probably only pay an online application fee if applicable.
Self-discipline and responsibility:
Who says that having to be more self-disciplined is a disadvantage? It is true that studying online requires more self-motivation and time-management skills, because you will spend a lot of time on your own without someone physically close to keep you focused on deadlines.
