Education, learning & knowledge …these are certain things which are endless in their own terms of value, you can’t learn everything in your life but rather you keep learning throughout your life, things you do everyday, knowledge that you share with people or events that happen everyday in our life …they all have something to teach us…and they become a part of our expertise over time . Like this your learning phase never ends with your schooling, or your graduation degree…it’s not even like that you cannot go for a higher degree just because you are a service holder. You can always opt for distance education programs if you don’t have enough time to go for a traditional course.
Now distance education programs offer you the same value that you would get with a traditional degree certificate, the only difference is that you don’t have to attend regular boring classes, and you can simply skip those lectures but still have the degree while doing a regular job or may be following another education program.
You may have the potential for a higher post in your company but only a degree is coming in between you and your success… if this is the case then distance education programs have just the right thing to offer you ….or may be you want to apply for a MBA degree but not having the required financial strength to afford a regular MBA course, then your dreams can have wings with distance education programs , because a regular MBA course can cost you 6 to 8 lakhs in Indian currency whereas distance MBA course would cost you as much as 20 to 30 thousand rupees .May be that’s why, keeping the growing popularity of distance education programs in mind, now there are number of universities are offering the same to the students ….the candidates just need to go to their websites and enroll themselves to the online courses offered by those universities.
Now internet has made this whole thing really easy and smooth, for example students can now have direct interactions with the faculties online, or discuss about a subject with others which in turn has almost eliminated the need of regular classes. But sometimes it makes hard for the students to go through a complex subject , therefore we cannot deny the importance of regular learning sessions where you can have a thorough discussion about a particular subject with your faculty or classmates. But still like every good things in life, this one(distance education programs) also has got some cons of its own, like in such a program you don’t have anyone to watch over your progress so you need to have a great deal of determination and involvement in order to have success in this way.
