◆ Internet makes it possible for learners and employees to carry outtheir duties from home, people may have different opinions on this development.My view is that although the influence of this trend has its own limitations, itbrings people more benefits.
◆ It could be argued there are certain disadvantages associated fromusing it for work or study. The obvious constraint is the limitation on works.Some jobs, especially those of manual labor nature, cannot be done online or athome. For example, construction requires employees to be on site. Similarly,the drawback also applies to study of some certain areas. For instance,chemistry requires many experiments conducted in the laboratory, which cannotbe done at home. Additionally, there is a wide range of people out there whoprefer face-to-face learning and working, which they find more effective thanonline learning. For example, classical blackboard learning still dominatesmany universities simply because it is easier for students to ask any questionsthey do not understand when they can have a talk with the teacher in thereality.
◆ However, I believe the development of internet appeals to people’sneeds more, especially for employees and students. It shrinks the cost oftransport getting to work every day. For example, under the condition of therising price on patrols, commuters can save a significant proportion of theirincome on transportation by telecommuting, which leads to higher standard ofliving for them. This is particularly important for young people, whose incomemight be not as high as elderly. Meanwhile, studying at home allows students toallocate their time so to maximize the efficiency of learning as they can takea break when they are tired, thus using the time they spent on learning asefficiently as possible.
◆ Overall, despite some minor drawbacks or boundedness of usinginternet for working and learning, it has dramatical increase in the efficiencyof learning and working as a whole, which prompts people live in a lot moreeasier life.
