Storify Piece

The Storify piece I have chosen to write about is the use of online classes for college students. Many students at IUSB and other schools have to drive to campus three or four days a week and may also work one or more jobs. This can cause serious stress over the course of the semester. I have decided to look up some advantages and disadvantages to online classes to see if they are worth taking from home.

This article from The New York Times talks about the increase in students taking online courses and how much that number is expected to grow in the coming years.

Another article I found which helpful had 10 advantages to taking online classes. One of the tips was that, generally, online classes cost less. Any college student I know would appreciate that.

There are also some disadvantages to online classes. A major problem with them this article pointed out was there is a lack of supervision, which does not work well with some students.

An additional disadvantage is discussed here. This article mentions the unique experience of seeing a debate form in the classroom, one that could lead to you understanding a different point of view.

I also read this article about the cost of online courses. It gave information and multiple comparisons of different programs and schools, along with the financial burden that comes with each.
