How to Deal with Negative Comments about Your Online Education

14:26 22 April in Education

The whole world is operating on the collision of positive and negative aspects. At times, in their collision, the whole fundamental turns into a neutral mode, or at times one supersede the other.

Generally speaking, it is quite surprising how every time almost every new domain has a larger share of people who tend to criticise that domain. While at the same time, there is another group which tries desperately to bring about a change in the whole context. There arise only a few people who tend to support this endeavour, while the rest seem to follow the trend of accepting the negative.

Online education is the new target:

For students the whole concept of studying implies the old and usual pen and paper mode. At times, when teachers try to create a new process of teaching, they are not quite met with positive feedback.

In this domain the entry of online education too has reached its negative points. Quite contrary to the mode of pen and paper, this system of training provides students a chance to experience the global atmosphere while sitting at the same place.  What is the most important aspect in this case is one has to remain positive at all times. One negative thought could actually ruin the whole concept of experimentation.

How to tackle the negativity:

It is important that while a person faces flak for his decisions, which according to him might be correct, a person needs to be positive from inside and stick to his decision. If a person is sure of the step that he or she has taken, then as a backup option, all one needs to do is recheck certain things.

There are certain aspects which need to be clarified and hence made sure that he decision taken is correct.

  • Staying positive:

It is very important to stay positive amidst all the problems. A student should be confident of his or her actions and hence be sure that the decision taken is for his or her benefit. There are only few people who would actually help out in real terms.

  • Checking the source of learning:

This is a very important aspect. The students need to be sure of the source from where they are getting their education from. So that once they are aware of the board that is heading the whole institution, the manner in which the higher learning centres are conducting the training programs, the future possibilities, the negative thoughts usually subside.

  • What are the courses that can be learned:

This is to be kept in mind. Most of the times, people do not have an idea of the courses available online, which is why they misguide and make negative comments. So, the student should be aware of the combination courses that can be taken up for studying.

  • Future options:

It is also very important to know exactly which fields an online educated graduate can work in. since people are not aware of it, so they have various negative thoughts in their mind. But the students concerned should be aware of the whole scenario.

Thus, negative aspects should never form a hindrance in the path of anyone’s success, especially in this new domain as online education.
