Positives Of Distance Learning
The traditional academic environment offers structure,
discipline, mentoring and a great social atmosphere for learning
that distance learning cannot usually provide. But distance
learning does have many positive aspects that as long as you
work hard can be just as successful to learning as the more
The first positive thing about distance learning is the cost.
For a fraction of the cost of attending an academic or technical
institution you can earn an online degree or certificate.
Because the offering school or academy has little overhead to
devote to distance learning, many offer degree granting programs
that are one tenth of the cost of a regular college education.
The second positive thing about distance learning is the time
involved in getting your degree or technical certification. In a
normal college classroom it would take you up to four years to
complete a course of study. With distance learning you set the
speed at which you are able to learn and if you want to
accelerate your program you just add more e-classes to your
curriculum. Of course you can always choose to slow the pace
down if you get busy at work or have a family emergency to deal
Another positive thing about distance learning is location. Just
like in real estate, "Location, Location, Location, is a very
important aspect of distance learning. That's because you choose
your location to learn. You don't have to travel out of your
community, out of state, or out of the country. You don't even
have to travel outside of your home. Pick a place inside your
home and apartment and get to work on your distance learning
The most important positive thing about distance learning is the
opportunity that you give yourself to get that college degree
that you have wanted all of your life. Like the ad says, that is
priceless. It will open up a whole new world to improve your
life and the lives of your family. It may lead you into a whole
new line of work, something that you have dreamed about forever.
Distance learning can be the best and most positive gift you can
give yourself, no matter how long you have been away from
school. Other parts of your life, like raising your family or
serving in the military have taken you away from that goal, but
with distance learning you have really been given a second
chance to realize your aspirations.
Give yourself the gift today.
