In a traditional educational setting, students are confined to learning within the walls of a classroom. However, distance education provides learners with the opportunity to receive an education without having to be physically present in a classroom. While distance education has historically been associated with less reputable institutions, the technological advances of the past few decades have made distance learning a viable alternative for students who want to receive a quality education without having to attend class in person. In addition, the skills that distance education teaches — such as an ability to learn independently, adapt quickly, communicate across a medium, and utilize technology — are skills that are increasingly in demand in the workforce. As a result, distance education is an option that more and more students are choosing as they look to prepare for their future careers.
COVID has made the case for distance education more apparent than ever before. The skills that students learn in a remote learning environment are essential for their future career success. With so much upheaval happening in the world of education, it’s important to consider all alternatives and choose the one that will protect your educational future.
