Online learning is a type of education that takes place over the Internet. It is also referred to as “E learning,” among other words. However, online learning is only one form of distance learning.
Online distance learning addresses the needs of an increasing population of students who cannot or choose not to engage in conventional classroom settings. Such learners include those who are unable to attend regular classes, who cannot find a specific class at their preferred college, who live in remote areas, who work full-time and can only study at or after work, and others who actually choose to learn independently. Courses offer an outstanding method of delivery of study material, unbound by time or place, enabling access to the content from anywhere at any time.
Learners consider the online world a convenient place to bring schooling into their busy lives. The opportunity to access a course on your phone, tab or PC with Internet connectivity, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, is an immense motivation for many of today’s students.
