Distance Learning Initiatives

Distance learning is becoming an accepted and indispensable part of the mainstream educational systems throughout the world. As education and learning break free of the traditional classroom and university models, the need to adapt to distance learning becomes vital for ensuring academic advancement.

Distance learning affords many advantages over traditional classroom-based forms of learning. It affords greater access to instructors that are specialists in their respective fields. Online learning also allows for a more flexible schedule, accommodating work, family, or other responsibilities. By cutting commute and transportation time and cost, avoiding large tuition fees, and making geographical distances irrelevant, online courses become an appealing means for learning.
