The main points of this video are about the pros and cons of being an online student. The main pro is the flexibility of being able to finish assignments weeks ahead of time, as well as not having to meet with professors at a certain time or day. A con of being an online student is the lack of interaction, as well as the communication barrier. It is important to build an online community and make sure to communicate with professors. It also depends on the professor, as some are more hands-on than others. The speaker also mentioned that they received a goodie box from the school, which included a mug, journal, and stickers.

My take away from this video is that it is important to be organized and to communicate with professors when taking online classes. It is also important to build an online community with peers and to stay on top of assignments. It is also important to take advantage of the flexibility of online classes and to finish assignments ahead of time if needed.

I go to the university of florida. I am an online student, so go gators. I am the og pandemic online student, so i’ve been going online before the pandemic.

 

Even was ever thought of right. Now. I’M studying public relations in the college of journalism and communications being a gator is amazing. You know the university of Florida is one of Florida’s oldest colleges, one of its first universities, so it’s definitely an honor to be a gator. I absolutely love the student life even though I’m online I have been on campus.

 

The campus is huge. It’s beautiful, very scenic. Very historical they’re, very good at you, know, uniting people and and giving students the opportunity to unite within themselves. Some of the pros and cons of being an online student is for one pro. Definitely the flexibility.

 

The flexibility of being an online student is just flexible. I mean it’s, it’s super convenient if you have a busy life, you know if you have a part-time job, a full-time job, if you’re a parent, especially if you’ve got other stuff going on, it’s really convenient. You can finish your assignments weeks ahead of time. You can ask your professors for if they can open up the exams early for you to finish, say if you have a trip you have to go on backpacking across Asia, or anything like that. You can definitely finish your work early so that you don’t have to worry about it.

 

A lot of classes. You don’t need to meet with professors at a certain time. A certain day. It’s just the assignments are assigned to you and you just have at it a con of being an online student. I would say the interaction you don’t really get to obviously physically meet with your professors and you don’t get to build certain friendships with your peers.

 

Everything’s online, but it is important to build an online community, make a group chat, make a whatsapp group chat or something of that matter make sure you and your peers are all on the same page. If there’s anything, you missed, there’s definitely a communication barrier, but it doesn’t have to be an obstacle. It doesn’t have to be something that you see as a bad thing. You just have to kind of roll with the punches and do better in terms of improving communication. Be as innovative as possible really get to know your peers, because they’re going to help you out, and you are definitely going to help out a lot of your peers.

 

It also depends on your professors. Some professors are more hands-on. Others are not so much. You kind of have to email them a lot. You have to bring up a lot of things, but the one thing i will say is always always always communicate with your professor.

 

I don’t care if you think a question is dumb or if it’s a waste of everyone’s time. No question is a dumb question, even if they repeated it five times, hey, if you missed it, it’s your job as a student of any kind to be on top of your work. At the end of the day, you know colleges and university classes. It’s an adult program, so essentially you are responsible for your own tracking of your work. Make sure you email, the heck out of all your professors.

 

Ask your peers. Ask your classmates any kind of questions you have never be afraid to ask online school is definitely not for everyone, but at the same time, i guess since covet it kind of. Is it it? It all depends on your personality. It depends on your personality.

 

It depends on your work ethic. It depends on your drive. It depends on how organized you are all that stuff. One other pro of being an online student is that you get a little goodie box that they send you. Let me show you so they send it in this box, nice a little beat up.

 

I’ve had it for about three weeks. They send you this really cool mug, really pretty very metallic um. They give you this awesome journal. I mean: isn’t this beautiful with a cool orange pen, i haven’t really wrote anything in it because I’m scared too, because it’s so pretty. I don’t want to like mess it up with my, not so great handwriting.

 

So i just i don’t want to ruin this. This is so nice; they also send you stickers or use some of them, but really cool stickers, very pretty very with the style aesthetic I like it. My biggest goal is to be passionate about what I’m learning, I’m not just learning you know to learn. I actually want to learn the material that’s being thrown at me and I actually fathom it and i understand it and i can re-explain it all day long this year, I’ve been doing good with less distractions, taking out all the distractions of my life just been focusing On some really good study habits, um that i haven’t in the past got ta, get it together, got ta just get my crystals online. You know, I’m saying like just got: ta got ta, breathe and meditate and focus.
