Distance Learning Facts

  • Distance Learning students sometimes can end up neglecting their course work because of personal or professional circumstances, unless they have compelling reasons for taking the course.
  • Some students prefer the independence of Distance Learning; others find it uncomfortable.
  • Distance Learning gives students greater freedom of scheduling, but it can require more self-discipline than on-campus classes.
  • Some people learn best by interacting with other students and instructors, but Distance Learning may not provide much opportunity for this interaction.
  • Distance Learning requires you to work from written directions without face-to-face instructions.
  • It may take as long as two or three days to get comments back by e-mail from your instructor (such as over a weekend or holiday).

  • Printed and/or online materials are the primary source of directions and information in Distance Learning.
