Do you sometimes think time is a factor holding you back from pursuing higher studies or a course you have wanted to do since some time? Is the lack of a degree holding you back from applying for a better job or getting promoted at work? Do you have hands on experience yet keep getting rejected due to lack of a certificate/degree/diploma? If you relate to any of these scenarios or are in a similar situation, read ahead.
There is no doubt that life is the biggest teacher and your experience teaches you a lot and that there is no better way to learn than getting your hands dirty. All these facts are true, yet you can’t dismiss the importance of education, especially in today’s time when everyone needs to upgrade their knowledge and skills at regular intervals to stay on top of their game. There is a lot of competition in today’s time and we face competition from professionals all around the globe. Every year, each college, university and institute produces a fresh batch of degree/diploma holders who are ready to take on the world. They are smart, ambitious and each lot better than the previous one.
So what is the solution to these situations? The solutions include distance education, correspondence programmes and online courses. These are flexible, affordable and practical. They are flexible as they can be pursued from home and you are not required to go anywhere for the classes. Thus, one is not required to quit his/her job. Most correspondence courses are cheaper than regular university education and last but not the least these courses are usually designed keeping in mind working professionals and thus, use modern tools and methodologies such as online exams, online classrooms, audio/video lectures, and simulations, etc.
Various universities/institutes offering distance education allow their students to post or email their assignments and some universities also give their students the option of ‘on-demand exams’, where a student can choose the date and time of the exam from a given mpo slot but as per his/her choice.With modern learning tools such as weblinks and eBooks, etcetera the students can study anytime and from anywhere as per their convenience. Online courses as is clear from the term itself are conducted online and range from a few hours to a few months. They are mostly short term and specialized in nature and the participants are given a certificate of participation or successful completion of the course.
