Students like online real estate courses for some of the same reasons they want to practice real estate. Most want to enjoy the flexibility of a self-made schedule, and online courses are designed to go through course material at the student's pace, as he/she finds time, whether the student is at home, at the office, waiting for a child to get out of soccer practice, etc. Online education allows a student to break the material up into smaller sections and to spread it out over time instead of sitting in a classroom for hours on end.
Online real estate courses tend to be less expensive than in-classroom courses. Additionally, taking an online course will save the cost of traveling to the nearest classroom location, the time required to miss work, and the expenses associated with in-class courses such as snacks, babysitters, coffee, gas, lunches, etc.).
