This paper explores the benefits and disadvantages of online and face-to-face modes of education. Throughout the paper, I discuss whether online courses provide the same level of education as face-to-face courses without the nurturing, attentive, and physical aspects. Based on extensive reading on the topic, as well drawing on my personal experience, I argue that online and face-to-face education can have both positive and negative effects on students’ learning. However, I conclude that online courses do not provide the same level of education that face-to-face courses do, based on the nurturing, attentive, and often physical aspects that traditional education provides. I provide what I hope is an argument that will help others appreciate that face-to-face courses provide a more effective and helpful way for students to have a successful academic career.
