Why You Should Never Use Homework Help Online

There are plenty of reasons that many students do use homework help online, and you probably already know them:

  • Lack of time—students have a lot of responsibilities and obligations, and often feel they don’t have time to write their own coursework.
  • Lack of ability—either the student just doesn’t have the ability to do the work, or they don’t have a foundation of understanding at this point to handle the sophistication of the assignment.
  • Language problems—if you’re not a native speaker of the language which your work must be completed in, it can be very frustrating.
  • No motivation—many students don’t feel motivated to complete their work because it doesn’t seem to serve any real life purpose for them.

These aren’t necessarily bad reasons, but there is a strong opposing view point. Here are some of the reasons you should never use homework help online.

  • You won’t learn—while the topic you’re studying may not interest you, there’s practically always some value in learning something you didn’t know before. If you have someone else do your homework online, you won’t learn anything, and what was just a frustration has now become truly useless to you.
  • You won’t be prepared—what you learn in school is cumulative. If you don’t learn what you need to complete your current assignments, you won’t even be able to do your future ones, even if you wanted to. And it’s not always about the particular subject matter. You might not need to know about the research paper topic in the future, but you’ll certainly need to know how to write a good research paper. And if you think you already do, well—you may be correct. However, your instructors’ standards are going to continue to be more complex and sophisticated as you progress. That’s why the practice is important.
  • You could get caught—plagiarism is a serious offense with dire consequences. You may not care at all about your high school history class, or your undergrad comp class, but you’ll care when you can’t get into the university, graduate program, or law school you want.
  • It’s a bad habit—When you enter the working world, you’re not going to be able to skip out on responsibilities this way, every time. If you challenge yourself to do more, you’ll be able to do more—if you don’t challenge yourself, you’re letting yourself down.
