Distance learning and online courses are becoming more popular with students being able to study at their own pace and acquiring internationally accredited qualifications. Even at high school level, online courses are available for learners to complete their schooling education, usually with help from online tutors and support groups. This type of study may be beneficial to families that are prone to relocating often, for kids that prefer studying by themselves or children with disabilities that make it difficult to attend classes.

What is distance learning?
Also known as correspondence studying or home study, this is where learners receive instructions and study material via the internet and perhaps in the post as well. Learners study on their own and have no interaction with teachers. Exams, assignments and projects are also done at home and support for learners can be online, via email or post.
Who would distance learning be suitable for?
Distance learning will help children that have disabilities and find it difficult to attend classes. Kids who have illnesses and cannot be around too many people can also benefit from this style of learning. Discipline is important to self-learners so that they efficiently manage their time ensuring they get through the required material.
