Online education is not for everyone. Although it is becoming increasingly popular, online education has both benefits and limitations. It is certainly convenient, and it allows some people access to education who otherwise might be prevented from involvement. But its impersonal nature and the many resources needed to deliver quality online education with consistency and effectiveness are daunting. Not everyone can or should provide online education, depending upon many factors such as the mission of an educational institution, the availability of technological resources, the operational expense budget, the interests and skills of the faculty, and the availability of other options for potential participants.
