Online Education For the Busy Mommies



Education is one of the priceless achievement we can have as well as learning. Learning, as the old adage goes, is a continuous process even after we leave school to have family or build a career. our learning must not end.

Being a career mom, struggling to manage my family and career with the little time and energy that I have is a big challenge. However, meeting my personal goals to further improve and erudite myself is something that keeps me going. At the same time, the happiness of seeing my family being well-cared of inspite of my hectic schedule at work is also something that I consider as a feather in my cap.

Mommies who wish to go back to school but are unable to due to family or other commitment can do so without causing much dent on their budget and time management. One of the forefronts in making this endeavour happen is the online education. And with online education, you can take another course or continue where you have left of or carry on some credits from your previous education is now possible.

Why is online education a good move for busy moms?


1. Comfort and Convenience

No picking of clothes to wear. No budgeting for food and commute allowance. No nanny required to watch over the kids. And all these, can save you big time and provide comfort whilst learning at your own pace and time in the confines of your home, wearing your jammies!


2. Many courses offered to choose from

The online education is teeming with courses sometimes not offered in the classroom setting. I have taken several interesting courses online already and some of them are offered exclusively on online learning platform. I have taken skills-building courses too like the Basic of Graphic Design through online education and I have learned a lot just by following the instructions and examples taught by my instructor.


3. Affordability 

Many universities and institutions offering online courses have promotions for early birds or just by simply enrolling in one of the courses they offer. They provide discounts too if you take another course.

Also, most of resources to be used are accessible online and downloadable for free. There is no need to budget for your commute and clothes to wear when you attend a conventional classroom setting.


4. Easy access

Taking your online classes is just a breeze now. There is no need to commute and sit in a class full of people. Now, online courses can be accessed anywhere, anytime (if you are accessing late recordings of classes), and across many formats in the PC or devices.


5. Various methods of teaching

There are many ways to learn online. If you struggle with learning at a classroom pace because it can be a quick paced setting, then learning online is a different matter. You can choose how you cope with the learning process as an individual as lessons are delivered in various multimedia teaching techniques, taught by field experts, and courses are better organized when delivered to you.

  2. I have an instagram account, but I have't use it. I don't have a smartphone to use the app on. I've read that you can still use instagram with a computer, but I haven't figured out how to do that.

  5. Actually, e-learning courses are kinda expensive ( based on websites I've been through) but convenience is the best thing you can get from it. Also, I like the variety of courses you can avail unlike in physical school, you can only get courses based on your physical self's time haha well! New era it is!

  6. Indeed, when you become a mom, getting busy is part of the routine. and thus, online education suits best for many most especially for moms who have a lot of duties to take care of. I have a friend who is a single mom of 3. She plans in finishing her studies but through an online portal offered by one of the college schools here local. I just hope that she'll be able to manage her time as 3 kids are no joke! But I believe she'll be able to do that though.

  12. I have tried to get a degree online but unfortunately I learned that there are some schools (Like Ashford University) that take advantage of those with learning disabilities to get the Federal Funding. I am hoping at some point to complete my degree but I don't know if it'll happen. I will have to hold onto your article for some more tips!
