Online Classes: PROS: 1. Classes can be completed with articleship (for those who are undergoing) At times you tend to miss some of them due to office hours, visit to clients place or peak audit season etc. 2. Saving of commuting time Especially in big cities where it consumes your atleast an hour or two. This also brings some peace of mind as traveling can be hectic and it drains your energy as the pollution is no less. Further, it is better to move less in public transport in these Covid times. 3. Class scheduling as per your liking Say a student wants to study from xyz teacher but he teaches in morning batch and the student likes to study late in night and is not a morning person. Then with online lectures, he can make a schedule as per his/her own choice. 4. No disturbance in class from others How small the batch may be, in every class there will be some oversmart a**es whose behaviour will irritate you and disturb your focus on the subject. With online lectures you can cut all the unnecessary nonsense. 5. Maintaining a regular eating schedule/habit With physical/virtual/satellite classes, student has to adjust his eating time so as to leave on time for classes. Sometimes, we may eat less or even skip the meal altogether. One can say that, so what, you have to make some sacrifices. But such sacrifices will eat you up. One cannot afford to overlook the health part. It's a vital factor for your ultimate performance. 6. Learning and understanding at your pace Every student has his own style of learning. A teachers method or speed may not be completely suitable for all. With online lectures you can modify the speed, especially for some teachers who are too slow. If you don't understand anything, you can go back and see it again. If you get bogged down, you can pause and take a small break. If youâ??re getting interested in the topic, you can continue and cover more of it. 7. Time for self study and revision Self study and revision is the most important aspect. With online classes you can plan your classes as per your way, i.e. by when you want to finish them so that you have xyz amount of time before the exams. As online lectures are pre-recorded, there will be less chances of delay of course completion from teachers side. Can't reduce it to zero as there can be delay from your end. CONS: 1. High requirement of discipline from students end As the control is in students hand, there are high chances of procrastination. â??Aray koi baat nahi kal kar lenge!â??. If there is lack of discipline, then this tomorrow keeps piling up and in the end you wonâ??t have time to correct yourself. So, online lectures require more dedication then physical classes. 2. Requires investment in technology/gadget (if someone prefers laptop over smartphone) Though Indigolearn is plug and play anywhere, any device. I am just talking from a general point of view. Majority of the other online, to be more specific pendrive, lectures are played on laptop and they need a certain set of min. configuration to play them. Old models wonâ??t work here effectively. Hardly few offer classes on desktop, though after the Covid-19 pandemic, few have started offering on android mode. But smartphone is not feasible to watch long hours of classes, it cramps your mind. Hence, everyone may not be able to afford a laptop. 3. Less interaction and networking opportunities In physical classes, you meet fellow students. You like some, you befriend some and add some contacts in your address book. Though this depends from person to person. I mean how open he/she is. Otherwise only those friendship lasts which have stood the test of time, random contacts may fade away. 4. Stress on eyes and occasional headaches If someone is going for all classes as online lectures, then definitely he will do atleast 2 subjects in a day, if not more. Already youâ??re watching the screen in the office, then your smartphone or TV and now after adding these classes to the list, the screen time will increase very much which may give sore eyes and occasional headaches. So, it becomes more important how you manage all these screen times to stop yourself from getting irritated further. There can be more pros and cons which can be added to this list. At present, i can see this much only but one thing iâ??m sure that the pros will anytime outweigh the cons. The bottom line is, â??Online lectures are self drive lecturesâ??. If you canâ??t discipline yourself, then please look for other options. Anyhow after the Covid-19 pandemic, physical classes are yet to start at full swing. Options will be limited. Live online lectures can be an option but then it also has certain limitations. Hopefully, in the coming months, all will be fine soon.

I recommend online coaching in indigo learn which gives you conceptual based knowledge when compared to many offline coaching centres and online coaching also saves travelling time and helps you to learn from anywhere you are comfortable
