Many families or students themselves realize the necessity of virtual classes late, and thus they enroll at a much later stage as compared to many of their contemporaries. There can be a multiple reasons of starting late:
- Skepticism: Sometimes families are skeptical about letting their children join online courses due to concerns such as whether the education will be worth the time and money invested, whether the quality of education will be on a par with that of a traditional school, whether it allows children to socialize enough and many more myth-related queries.
- Financial crisis: Online education is extremely affordable. Still some lower middle class families might struggle with day-to-day expenditures. As a result, they are forced to educate their children at a much later stage, once the crisis cools off.
- Realization of need or purpose: While applying for jobs, most prospecting employees realize the need of an online degree course. It plays a pivotal role in getting a job, maintaining a secure job, and in getting higher incentives or promotions. Such employees start with online courses simultaneously with their jobs.
