Is Distance Learning As Good As Traditional Learning?

September 7th, 2009

Studies by Searcy and Others (1993) and Nixon (1992) were conducted to determine whether students learning was as good as traditional education when achieved via distance education. Neither found significant difference in average GPAs between the formats though Searcy found student completion rates might be higher in the traditional sections, thus raising questions concerning factors impeding student course completion: students needing more guidance or more extensive interaction with faculty and the issue of technology access as it might affect low-income, minority students.

Avoid Procrastinating in distance learning

August 24th, 2009

Since most courses online offer to learn at your own pace it becomes easy to forget about your school work and focus on other things. Many students find it challenging to keep focused on their work and studies. Too many students never complete their given course or diploma because their lives are simply too busy or they lack the discipline and motivation to succeed in their studies. If you plan to study online and at a self paced program make sure to set some goals and deadlines or you may find yourself struggling to complete your course.

What Is Distance Learning?

August 17th, 2009

Distance learning means you can study from home in order to gain qualifications in areas of study that might boost your chances of employment or promotion without having to attend formal classes at a college or university setting. The providers say that one of the many reasons for the popularity and success of their programmes is that people choose this option because they cannot take time out of work to study full-time and this is their one way of achieving desired qualifications without having to give up an employment position or their earned income whilst studying from home as it suits them.

Don’t scare employers with Distance Learning

July 19th, 2009

Virtual Schools and distance learning has come along way as far as quality, reputation and technological advances go. That does not mean that public perception has changed along with it quite yet. While many employers see the benefits of online study and recognize the diplomas and education earned some old school employers still see “Diploma Mill” certificates that mean nothing to them. They feel that brick and mortar schools are the only way and disregard online learning. If you feel that is your employment case make sure to minimize the emphasis on your resume and when speaking with employers. Talk about the school and not the learning method.
