There are many false myths surrounding the world of eLearning. Only by getting rid of these beliefs, I know that they can take advantage of more and more people.
What are the main false myths about online courses?
1. Online courses are qualitatively worse than classroom courses
It is a rather generic statement and a priori judgment. As with master's or university courses, the quality of e-learning can also vary from course to course. For this reason, it is always essential to choose the right course.
