Reviews of both sides of the issues via in-depth literature reviews, personal conversations with individuals experienced in distance learning along with studies from universities guided the discussion of the article. Based upon the information discussed in this commentary, there are many valid concerns to be considered. Being aware of the both sides allows better preparation to embrace the new experiences that online learning has to offer (University of Illinois, 2007).
