We live in a world of euphemisms. When someone dies we say, "they passed away." When a person lies we say, "they're economic with the truth." When a student has a serious retardation we say, "they are cognitively challenged." Euphemisms can best be described as a type of cancer running amuck. The problem isn't with their use, rather, the real danger is the underlying cause that promotes their use. We currently live in a global society that places value on disguising the truth. The better one is at disguising or distorting the truth, the more value they are given. Education has also been impacted by the euphemism pandemic. Parents are having to take it upon themselves to get tutors for their children as a result of the stagnation euphemisms promote.

In a traditional college class instructors will likely have a fairly predictable group of students and they can be visually assessed, even though perceptions may not always be accurate. For online students there can be a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences, and the traditional definition of a college student no longer applies. That's why the phrase non-traditional students has been used to describe the online student as it represents a group of students who have different needs. It becomes imperative for online instructors to learn who their students are and their present capacity if they are going to be able to assist them and support their development.
Within an online class it is possible to have every variety of student and this is inclusive of learning disabilities, physical disabilities, mental impairments, and the list continues. There is a saying that you should not judge a book by its cover and with online students there is no visible cover to assess. Even the phrases ...

For example, do you find yourself listening to English, but sometimes stop paying attention? You don't even realize it, but several minutes have gone past and you have been thinking about something completely different.
I am sure, you don't catch any of the English words or phrases that you heard. Or maybe even what the thing you were listening to is about.
This is probably because you were not really listening. Your mind is going somewhere and you cannot concentrate. Obviously, this is not going to improve your English listening skills.
So why does this happen?
This happen because probably the ...
