8. Also on the other side to this topic, face to face interaction that students experience at traditional schools makes these kids more academically balanced. This is what employers typically like better then students who have learned online. Research has shown that students who attend a traditional school have better hiring rates then those who do not.

9. A positive side to this online education is that it is a lot cheeper then traditional classes. What happens is once you take these online classes you have eliminated a middle cost. Students who end up taking traditional classes tend to pay up to 70% more then online participants. Food, transportation, room and board are all key factors.

10. With recent studies and stats even though that online learning numbers are increasing significantly these learners are people taking the classes on the side. These are people who are older and are wanting to return to college. So this means that the number of students who attend traditional colleges/schools will not suffer as much as it seems it will, distant learners will just increase.
