The top three benefits of distance learningPosted on 20/05/2015 by Jess O'Connor
What makes distance learning such a great choice? Here are the top three benefits of studying from home.
Don’t want to come to class every day? More of a night owl than a morning person? Wish you could just write your assignments at home in your pajamas? Distance learning offers this level of flexibility, allowing you to choose when you want to study, and where.
As long as you put in the required number of hours of study per week, you are free to manage your time as you see fit. And if that means working from the comfort of your couch next to your cat, who are we to judge?
Distance learning course fees are sometimes slightly cheaper than on-campus fees. However, the real money-saving opportunities come from not having to travel to college every day.
Our distance learning students comment that they save money on petrol, parking and public transport, not to mention they are rarely tempted to spend their cash on lunches out or takeaway coffees.
3. Digital learning
In order to study from home effectively, you need to be reasonably savvy on the computer. And the best way to sharpen up your computer skills? Practice, practice, practice.
After a few months of distance learning, you’ll be a pro at all the computer basics, from the Microsoft Office suite to finding your way around online forums and email platforms.
In today’s day and age, employers are looking for staff that have strong digital skills and know their way around a computer. You’ll definitely fit this description!
