Who Else Wants Online Distance Education?

By Ras Reed

So much noise is being made about online distance education. Many people are joining the bandwagon while others are hesitating. Before the advent of online distance education we have been used to distance education. As the name suggest, it means earning education without being in the same place with your instructors. The education is mainly conducted via the normal snail speed mail. The course materials are sent to you. You do the reading when and wherever you like. In no distance time, you have acquired a degree or diploma like those that went to the traditional schools.

But man has gone further in making the work easier for us all. Instead of having to wait for ages for your course materials, you just need to hop online and do all the learning. The internet makes it easier for you especially if your country does not have an effective postal system. All you need now is a computer with an internet connection. This is what is in vogue. Join the league of people earning various degrees and diplomas via the World Wide Web.

Computer literacy is all what you need to benefit from this fast pace education method. You should acquire the basic computer skills before thinking of online distance education. Computer skills such as word processing, e-mail, making use of chat rooms and surfing the internet are pre-requisite. I will assume that reading this article suggests that you have at least some of these basic skills. But you can still improve on them by spending some few hours online. Moreover, you are expected to at least have a computer at home with internet connection. If you don't, you may want to hook up with neighbors that have one. But it is better if you have one. This is because you may want to work late in the evening and I am not sure your neighbor may want that. Also, ensure you get the required softwares, scanners, printers and other equipments that will make reading easier for you.

There is no limit to the number of courses or online distance education programs that you can run. It depends on you. There are various courses which you may not get from the traditional schools. Spend some time online and see a lot of these programs that will surely change your life for the best. You won't regret doing so. You are welcome to the club!
