people looking at ways to improve their education. Long
distance education is a choice that a lot of people are
seriously considering. There are positive and negatives that
can be said about this form of learning. Here we will look
at them.

Having the flexibility to work when the time is most
convenient for you is the top reason many people choose this
way of learning. Being able to have access online programs
that they are studying 7 days a week makes it a great way
for students to be able to balance all of the other things
that they have going on in life, like jobs and friends. They
still have time frames but you are able to meet them at
times that fit your schedule well.

There is also the benefit of not having to travel anywhere
to get to school. You also save a lot when it comes to wear
and tear on your vehicle. Being able to log in from your
computer and start your work is a great thing. You also do
not have the worries about being late for classes when you
decide to use long distance education.

There are a lot more options available when it comes to
where you decide to study. The school that you want may be
on the other side of the country but that is okay as you do
not have to travel to attend classes when you are using long
distance education.

There are some disadvantages that come with long distance
education. The first one that comes to mind would be the
fact that there is far less social interaction. There are
e-mails and discussions, but there is no physical
communication with other students as there is in a
traditional setting.

There is also the issue of no contact with other students.
You are unable to have any of the physical contact that you
would if you were to go to the local college. This can be a
good or a bad thing, it depends on the person.

The most important one is whether or not you have the self
discipline that is necessary to succeed with this type of
learning. Having good time management and organizational
skills are a must. If you do not have these skills, this may
not be the best way for you to seek out your education.
Think very hard about this.

Look into these things before jumping in with both feet.
Long distance education is a great option for many people,
but it is not for everyone. If you do decide that this is
for you, then may you have the best of luck in your
