Distance Learning CoursesPosted by : November 18, 2021 admin
Are our distance learning courses effective?
An increasing number of students, not only in the UK but around the world, have already jumped into online distance learning as a viable alternative to face-to-face teaching. This has spiked since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic for fairly obvious reasons.
Some may still not be convinced over the validity of distance learning courses or may still only see challenges along the way. However, one of the biggest benefits that distance learning courses bring (obliquely) is the practice and enhancement of self-discipline.
Studying independently without physical supervision from someone or something external creates a huge potential to lose focus or drift off into something more ‘pleasurable’ (of course, some people do find studying pleasurable or fulfilling, too).
Distance learning courses give you the opportunity and the flexibility to study in your own time, at your own pace. If you don’t have the self-discipline to manage your time and priorities, then completing your course might present a problem.
As you complete your online course, you are not only learning and developing the theoretical and technical skills of what you’re studying but you are also building up your character, strengthening your resolve, and improving self-discipline.
These are essential life skills – an unexpected bonus, and completely free of charge!
Distance learning courses can be as effective as the conventional courses you take in ‘bricks and mortar establishments such as universities or academies.
If you are still wondering if this is best for you, then why not take the plunge and experience a distance learning course?
