Online Learning

Few mature students can commit to fixed campus-based lectures week in, week out and technological advancements have enabled people to gain a respected education through online methods.”

And online learning, it seems, is just as effective as face-to-face learning. A study conducted by the Department for Education in the US in 2010 found that college students studying online performed better than those studying exclusively face-to-face…

And you don’t even have to be in the UK to study for a UK qualification. University of Derby Online Learning (Udol) currently has around 3,000 students from around the world, studying subjects ranging from business to counselling and psychotherapy. “Because the learning materials are accessible via the web using the student portal, and the virtual learning environment, time zones become irrelevant,” says Stone…

Technology has enabled students to enrol at any university in the world, without needing to move there, she adds: “Geography and time differences just add to the global study experience – as do cultural differences. Delivered well, online learning can be a highly interactive, rich, stimulating and rewarding experience.”
