    I like technology but, it does not always seem to like me. I think its great to use computers but the best experience is hands on. However a combination of online (such as pictures for anatomy or movies of procedures) can be a great study tool when combined with personal experience. 
    I prefer interacting with a class/professor in-person over taking classes over the internet. I also prefer having a tangible book to study from instead of studying from a book or information that is stored on a CD.
