Online classes are also beneficial for students who want to avoid worrying about schedule conflicts so they can maintain focus on other responsibilities. Added benefit, you can watch lectures and contribute to class discussion threads while waiting for a cup of coffee at your favorite café! You choose where and when to watch lectures.
