When making your decision of where to study you must consider all your options. As technology has developed and more people have access to these resources learning has also changed drastically. Before, education could only happen in a classroom or lecture room. Now, learning can take place from anywhere in the world. Let’s have a look at the difference between distance learning and the more traditional route of education. 

Distance Learning 

Distance learning, also known as home study, is learning that takes place from the comfort of your own home. Distance learning colleges have gained popularity as many students are seeing the perks of this method of learning. With this type of education you are able to apply what you are learning in real life situations. While you study and upgrade your skills, you can still work and solidify yourself in the professional environment. Are distance learning and online learning the same thing? They are very similar, however some online colleges still sometimes expect students to come into class for a set period of time. With distance learning everything can be done from the comfort of your own home. Distance learning colleges are usually cheaper than location bound institutions and you will also find yourself saving money on travelling fees. 

Location Bound Colleges

This the conventional way of learning. If you attend a college that is location bound your learning will take place on campus and you will be expected to finish assignments at home. You will be attending classes everyday and sometimes smaller tutorial groups as well. Location bound colleges are very similar to the school set-up.Attending a location bound college is great for students who are social and need face-to-face interaction with lecturers and other students. In this way you will get to experience that classic college experience and meet tons of new people. 

Which option is the best for you? You decide. Distance learning is a great alternative for students who need to work while studying and want to schedule their studies around their time. Some students need to be in class to learn, but other students are able to succeed academically while studying from home.
