Distance learning, also known as online learning or e-learning, allows you to combine your family life and work obligations with your studies, getting a high quality university education and earning a relevant qualification, from your home and without leaving your job.
E-learning is a mode of delivering education and instruction, often on an individual basis, to students who are not physically present in a traditional setting such as a classroom. A variety of e-learning delivery technologies may be used enabling students to undertake either self-paced, asynchronous or instructor-led, synchronous study.
Common educational technologies used for e-learning are computer-based instruction (CBI), computer-based training (CBT), online education, virtual learning environments (VLE) (which are also called e-learning platforms), m-learning (for mobile delivery) and massive open online courses (MOOCs)
Distance education or distance learning may also be delivered without the use of online technologies and presence. It is delivered in the form of asynchronous correspondence courses with or even without the use of computers. This is particularly useful for students that don’t have access to computers or the internet.
