Schools are seeing that they can get more students if they go online.

All they have to do is use the internet. Saving both the school and the students money and resources.
With the lifestyle of the student changing to seeing their professor online, instead of going to a classroom or lecture hall, it helps the student be able to create a more calm environment for themselves within their own homes. This isn’t always a benefit, but in the case of being able to concentrate, and improve the quality of work, it definitely has its place.
Security is made much easier, with no campus shootings possible if students are being taught online, the chances of someone injuring another at a school would be, pun intended, virtually impossible! Making sure our children are safe in school should be one of our highest priorities.
Uses of virtual classrooms are limitless. Presentations, examples and more are all there for the teacher to experiment with. We have barely scratched the surface when it comes to online teaching and the benefits it can provide! Making the curriculum available whenever the student chooses to go through the content makes it much easier to work school into busy lifestyles, and allows many more people to achieve dreams of getting a college degree.
With many jobs and industries being based online, Most of the world has turned to the use of the internet to conduct business. Schools, being a large industry see the financial gain of turning to the internet. More students, fewer buildings mean more income. Because schools need money to be able to give quality education, saving in any areas that they can become an incredibly important factor.
Online schooling will, and already is changing the world. With so much of the world turning to the internet, most if not all universities will eventually need to utilize some form of online learning program. The use of online learning is so vast and different that schools must adjust and adapt to current trends, or risk being left behind. Education has always been about evolving, while not losing information from the past. Learn from our ancestors, while making new discoveries in our own generations. It can be incredibly intimidating to change from old comfortable habits to new ways of doing things, but that is quite literally, the only way we can grow. Making ourselves uncomfortable and forcing ourselves to find new and different ways to look at situations is the only way forward as a person, community, nation, and race.
