You can Study Anywhere
While not exactly a hidden benefit, the possibilities of where you can study are limitless. With internet access, you can be across the world, on a train or on your lunch break and still be studying. While we love Study Dens (here's a handy guide) we also love that you can be anywhere, at any time, and have your course available to study.
Losing your Stuff is not the End of the World
We've all been there, an important piece of work/lesson just dissapears and you can never find it again. Having it all online means that you will have a backup copy of your work/lesson somewhere in the internetspehere and be able to access it again with the right help.
There's Less Stuff to Worry About
If you're in a limited space and don't have room to create an amazing study den and keep boxes of stationery (we feel for you in this regard because stationery is amazing) the fact your entire course can be accessed and completed on something as small as a phone is very handy. Instead of carting around heavy books and files of notes, you have it all in the literal palm of your hand.
