Traditional universities and colleges are never going to disappear, however it's easy to see why more and more people are heading to cyberspace for their education. While online education requires students to be self-disciplines, organized and tech-savvy, it is possible for students to get a good education without ever setting foot in a traditional classroom.

Here are five reasons why you should consider an online education.

1. Flexibility

Taking online courses are great for people who need to work, but still want to earn a college degree. Online universities are flexible for students who have other commitments (like work or family). Students can 'attend' class while the kids are napping, on a lunch break or on the road for business. Online classes are great because you are not required to be in a classroom three nights a week at 6 pm sharp for the next 4 years of your life – but you can still get the same level of education. Do not be fooled, just because you do not have to go to class does not mean you do not have to work. You still have to do the work, you just get to decide when and where you do it.

2. Pace Yourself

Another advantage of online education is the ability for students to work at their own pace. E-learning generally focuses on student-centered learning, making it up to you to decide how you learn best. You can study at the same time each day for a set time, or you can use the course chat boards to talk to other students and your instructors. The chat boards are really nice for students who are timid and do not speak up in class. For some reason, it's easier to express yourself via chat.

3. Save Money

Most online education programs actually charge less than traditional universities. Take some time to look around the Internet and you'll discover online classes are inexpensive compared to regular college programs. Because online education is so much cheaper, when you finish your education you will not have to be laden with huge student loans like most college students. Getting an online education can actually save you lots of money.

4. No Commute

Not only can you save money in your coursework by pursuing an online education, you also save tons of money and hours driving yourself to and from school each day. One of the best things about online education is getting to learn from the comfort of your home – sweats and all. So, no more stressing about being to your 7 am class on time, instead, sleep in and study when you wake up. You'll also save money on eating out for those 'convenience meals,' childcare and gas. Paying your monthly Internet bill is a small price to pay for your college education.

5. Unlimited Options

There is nothing worse than decided more than anything I want to be (insert your dream profession here) when I grow up, then discovering your local university does not offer such programs. Well, that's not a problem with online education. When you know what line of work you want to pursue, you can look for universities that offer courses to support your goals. And, because classes are web-based, it does not matter if the college is in Miami, New York or Podunk Idaho.
