What are the advantages of online ISO courses?
1. Online standards training is convenient.
Your only excuse for missing class is not getting online! Otherwise, everything is available to you. You can get announcements, access notes, review assignments, discuss questions, chat with students and study any time you want. Other than certain due dates, you make your own schedule for completing the requirements of the course. The biggest advantage of online standards course is that your classroom and instructor (theoretically) are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
2. Online standards courses offer flexibility.
You can study any time you want. You can study with whomever you want. Online courses give you the flexibility to spend time with work, family, friends, significant others or any other activity you like. For many people, with continually changing work schedules or people who make frequent business trips, this method of standards course delivery is the best.
3. Online ISO standards courses bring education right to your place of work or home.
Having the support of your family and friends makes you more likely to succeed. Online students often find that their family, friends get involved in the course. Your husband or wife may look over the shoulder of an online student while they are surfing across the web. In short, everyone in the household gets involved in learning.
4. Online courses offer more individual attention.
Because you have a direct pipeline to the instructor via e-mail, you can get your questions answered directly. Many students aren't comfortable asking questions in class for fear of feeling stupid. Rather that trying to remember to ask it or forgetting it, you can send an e-mail to the instructor. Your opportunity to learn is enhanced.
5. Online courses give you real world skills.
When you complete this course, you will be able to include e-mail and web browsing as technical skills on your resume. That gives you a definite advantage over someone who doesn't have these skills. The possibilities are practically endless.
6. Online courses promote life-long learning.
Most of the time, most of what we learn in a course is forgotten within a week or two of the end of classes. Having a course online insures what your learning is always available. You can developed the skills to find information, digest it, synthesize it and formulate an answer to any question that comes your way.
7. Online standards courses have financial benefits.
Although you may think that buying a computer and paying for Internet access is pretty expensive, consider what it would cost you in gas, lodging and food. Consider the costs for child-care, or any other kind of care that you need to provide while you are away from home. Consider the costs of missing work to make classes or not being eligible for a promotion because you can't attend classes to advance your educational level. These are very tangible benefits of having access to education online.
8. Online courses teach you to be self-disciplined.
When it comes to education, the last moment is the worst possible moment to learn. Sometimes that lesson is learned the hard way in the form of poor performance on the job. Ultimately, you succeed because you realize the importance of doing things on time or even ahead of time. No one is there looking over your shoulder to tell you to go online and study. No one is there to make you ask questions or post responses. The motivation to study in an online course comes from you. The online student takes responsibility for their course of studies. In short, your success depends on you!
9. Online courses connect you to the globally.
No technological invention in the history of man has connected the people of the world like the Internet. Many times the web sites you visit in a course will is based in another country.
