What is distance learning?

Distance learning provides an alternative option to traditional classroom-based learning. This method of education allows students to study anywhere, as there are no classroom-based lectures. It provides greater access to education for students who are unable to attend traditional classes or lectures due to family commitments, a busy work schedule, physical disability, lack of transport, or lack of educational institutions in their area.
Courses can be offered at all levels such as matric certificates, diplomas, degrees, and short courses.
