The Advantages of Distance Learning

I want to break free, From the Classroom: How? The Advantages of Distance Learning!

There are many advantages of distance learning but one of the main advantages is that it allows you to fit your learning around your work and home life.

  • You can usually also set your own pace of study.
  • It is your decision as to when and where you study.
  • It doesn’t matter where you live you can gain knowledge and a qualification from anywhere in the world.
  • A distance learning course often costs less than a college course and of course
  • No commuting

Classroom learning is of course beneficial, however it does not offer the same flexibility as distance learning.

Distance learning is becoming increasingly popular as it allows easier work/life balance. Distance learning or e-learning fits around your lifestyle. This is especially favourable if you’ve got family commitments, or you’re budget-conscious. It’s also beneficial and valuable to those who wish to have a career but need to gain relevant skills and qualifications in order to do so whilst continuing to work.

You might consider distance learning if you wish to gain the crucial skills or recognised qualification to change your career, enhance future career prospects, or even if you want to just gain a more in-depth understanding of a subject or particular area of interest. Improve your lifestyle and your confidence with distance learning courses from Oxbridge Home Learning.

The main benefit; in my opinion!

The main advantage of distance learning for me is that it enables you to continue working while studying, facilitating “earn while you learn“. Studying when you want, where you want and how you want.

Additionally, there is no rigid timetable structure, thus you are free to study at your own pace. This means you don’t have to endure the stress of tight and strict deadlines and you can take your time to finish the course. It is known and studies and experience support, that not all students learn and process information at the same pace. However, with distance learning, there is no need to be concerned about falling behind or getting ahead and having to wait for others to catch up, like at school.

Many of us have a favoured approach to learning and a distance learning course give you the chance to discover and explore it.

  • Tactile learners work best when presented with practical and active tasks.
  • visual learners process visual information such as images and diagrams.
  • and auditory learners thrive on hearing information and processing this.
