Therefore, if the students need to clarify any doubts, they can ask their teacher who will have access to documents. 

3. Networking Opportunities

The students who are not comfortable opening up in front of others will have the chance to connect with their peers with online education. Connecting with other students from across the nations can also offer them opportunities like collaborating and working in a project. The students will also learn about different cultures, which will make them culturally sensitive and can fit in a different environment easily. 

4. Flexibility

With online education, the students will have the liberty to manage their careers and schools as they do not have to follow a permanent schedule. In traditional classrooms, there is a fixed time for class meetings that the students have to follow, and they do not have the power to change it.
