the newly-coined word"online education"may by no means（不） sound strange to most people. During the past several years, hundreds of online education colleges have sprung up (涌现)around China.
Why could online education be so popular in such a short period of time?（短时间内）For one thing, If we want to catch up with the development and the great pace of (快的步伐) modern society, we all should possess an urgent and strong desire （急切而强烈的欲望）to study, while most people nowadays are under so enormous pressures that (处在如此大的压力下以至于) they can hardly have time and energy （时间和精力）to study full time at school. Furthermore, online education enables them to save a great deal of time on the way spent on the way between home and school. Last but not least, the quick （快速的）development of internet，which makes possible （使之成为可能）all our dreams of attending class on the net，should also be another critical（关键的） reason.
Personally, I appreciate this new form of education. It's indeed a helpful complement （补充）to the traditional educational means（方式，方法）. It can provide different learners with more flexible and various（灵活多样的） ways to learn. Most of all, through online education, we can stick to our jobs and at the same time study and absorb the latest knowledge. 【已有很多网友发表了看法，点击参与讨论】【对英语不懂，点击提问】【英语论坛】【返回首页】
