1. More comfortable learning environment: Commercials that featuring students studying in the pajamas only skim the surface of one of the primary benefits of video education: there are no physical class sessions.
2. Convenience and flexibility: Video courses give students the opportunity to plan their study time around the rest of their day, instead of the other way around. Students can study and work when they are at their peak energy, whether that’s early morning or late at night.
3. Greater ability to concentrate: Some students even report that video courses are easier to concentrate in because they are not distracted by other students and classroom activity.
4. Videos on a cd save the cost internet connection.
