Some demonstrate they are independent and self-motivated individuals with initiative to achieve goals, and communicate effectively– in other words, they have many of the soft skills employers seek. Maybe these are the reason more and more people are choosing Online Learning.

Online degrees are no cakewalk; it takes a great deal of self-discipline, motivation and drive to complete a degree without the limitations and schedule imposed upon students by traditional colleges. Also, the people who enroll into distance learning courses tend to do so because they have professional/financial responsibilities that take up a lot of their time. Juggling college, work, and family is not easy, and those who successfully do so would obviously be an asset to any organization they are part of.

I agree. Online degrees are not easy to pursue. As it only depends on your determination and motivation, you need to stay put and linger on till the time you are through.

Yes. Online learning is not a simple thing. Most of the people thinks that it was easy to get certified if they go for online courses. it depends upon the learners motivation and self effort to complete the course successfully.

Online learning actually for people who are not lazy and are highly motivated. One big plus of onlinу education is independence!

I think online learning goes along with really good tutors that motivate you. I recently started a journalism course offered by a distance education school called Open School of Journalism. I cannot attend a school since I’m a stay-at-home mom. So this school gave me the opportunity to start with something I always wanted to do. And I was really pumped because I liked so many topics they offered. That was what motivated me the most. The only bad thing: You cannot start this course at ANY time since they offer a certain schedule for registration. I personally had to wait about 2 months before I could register. Does anybody else have experiences with other distance education schools that offer journalism? How was your experience with online learning at those schools?

Hello All,

Online learning, or e-learning, offers a number of advantages for people and companies looking to develop a new content program or curricula — none bigger than the ability to offer that training anywhere, anytime. That means whether your trainees are all together in a classroom or scattered all over the country in different time zones, they can still tap into the same course materials, and at a time that’s convenient to them.
