Online classes are the future. In this article I would like to argue why anyone who has some free time should take online classes. Attending class is a 20th century feature. You would need clothes, transportation and even books to utilize classes properly. However, with online education you don't need to waste time, or money in order to get to class. You can spend your time much more efficiently if you don't travel. But, this isn't the sole reason.

1. Staying Up To Date

The world is changing fast. If anyone wants to stay relevant, he must learn what are the current trends of his profession. If you are a programmer, new languages and features are always popping out. If you are a researcher, you must stay up to date with the developments of your research. Even small business owners such as hair saloons and restaurants need to know the current trends of their occupation, if they can implement new technologies to make their business better or to experience more styles and dishes from their competitors. Online classes are a perfect way for anyone to know the current trends of his profession.

2. Interest

Almost anyone has some deep passions he would like to turn into hobbies. For instance, if you like to write, draw or even build chairs, there are excellent beginner classes from the industry leaders to help you take your first steps. Even if you aren't a beginner in your field of interest, there is always something new to learn such as different materials or techniques. The world of online classes is huge, for those who have an open mind and are eager to learn new things the opportunities are endless.

3. Career development

Your skill set is what ultimately dictates your salary. If you can strengthen your strengths or expand the variety of your skills you could become more useful to your employer, or to a different employer. Life is too short to ponder on what could have been if we made different decisions at different stages of our lives. If you aren't happy with your current position and your career horizon doesn't seem appealing you can evolve to a more skilled employee. It might sounds scary, but with online classes you don't risk much.

4. Cost efficient

Online classes are much cheaper than traditional classes. Besides the costs of the classes, you have to include the time spent on getting to class, fuel costs and even the costs of the food you buy at class. With online classes, all of these costs shrink. You can eat healthier at home, you don't pollute the environment and you save precious time by not traveling to class. It might even be easier for you to concentrate without lots of people around you.
