• As an online student, you will have access to the most current material available as well as have the opportunity to be taught by faculty from around the world. The Internet has removed all geographical boundaries and distance learning can help foster a larger worldview through interaction with students and perspectives from all corners of the world.
• Distance learning propagates self-paced learning. Students need to learn how to pace themselves and concentrate on areas that require more attention. The advantage is that there is no need to wait for slower students in a class to catch up or lag behind the quicker students as seen in a traditional classroom setting. Students also have the opportunity to join chat rooms and forums at any point of time to hash out solutions and discuss problems with the course with other students and faculty online.
