To keep up with other universities and provide more opportunities for its students, Purdue should offer more online classes. The College of Education has recently implemented an online graduate program, the first of its kind at Purdue. Having more online programs is not necessary, but more online classes would be a wise move. It could be useful to a student taking an online course if there are technological aspects to the course that could not otherwise be offered in a classroom due to certain restrictions. For example, some classes are held in rooms without projector screens that would be useful in providing visual aid to lectures. If a course was offered online, it would be easier to have visual aids, and more of them because there is no time constraint a regular class would have. When taking large lecture courses into consideration, online classes could provide a better way for students to learn the material.
