Online vs offline studies- A comparison



By Dhruvika Jain

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”

The above-mentioned quote is of ‘Nelson Mandela’ that explicates the pivotal role of education in the world. Education plays a foremost role in a student’s life. Without education it is not easy to survive in this world. Students need proper education in every field such as economics, science, history, etc.

The education system although experienced a drastic transformation when the global pandemic hit. Moving from offline to online studies, it was very hard for me to understand things as a student. I was in class 6 when lockdown was imposed and I didn’t even know how to use a phone properly such as WhatsApp, Instagram, Twitter, etc. But online studies made me technology-friendly and I got to learn new things.

I got the chance to explore my laptop, prepare docs, PPT and much more. Online studies gave me a peaceful and good atmosphere for studies, and hence, there was no distraction.

However, online studies had a few drawbacks as well such as internet issues because of which we were not able to hear the classroom lectures, thus leading to lack of concentration. Also, online studies gave students the license to cheat in tests or exams which created a lack of honesty in them.

In a nutshell, I would like to say it is hard to choose between online or offline studies because both have their pros and cons. In the end, I would like to say, “Education is not just about going to school and getting a degree. It’s about widening your knowledge and absorbing the truth about life.”
