Before the internet the only way to educate yourself was to go to school or for your parents to hire a tutor who would come over your house and educate you on all sorts of topics. If you wanted a college degree you had to enroll in a university and go every day to class and get educated. Now we have the internet and have introduced what we call online education which has revolutionized how we learn. Information is at our fingertips and so our college degrees. No longer do we need to go to an actual class. Now you can educate yourself in the comfort of your own home. There are many online colleges that you never have to leave your house to go to class. Education has never been more accessible it’s almost at the point where there is no excuse for ignorance but online education has its negative points. Some people learn a lot better when actually sitting in front of a teacher who can explain things in details when you educate yourself at home you have no teacher to explain things in full detail but that doesn’t mean you don’t have a teacher present it just means you have to use other ways to get the answers you need for your education to be worthwhile but online education can allow you to be informed and educated.
