If you have little free time and you do not want to break away from your work, then distance learning will be an ideal way out of your situation. This training differs from the traditional attendance of lectures, obtaining theoretical material and practical skills in seminars. E-learning does not mean direct, face-to-face contact between the teacher and students. The training uses a remote system and email. By e-mail, the student receives the necessary teaching aids, as well as access to other educational resources. All you need is access to the Internet.
In Russia university e-learning is becoming more common.
What are the characteristics of such learning?
First of all, the student independently works with the materials provided to him, using his personal computer, mobile phone, DVD player.
If necessary, the student receives advice, advice and evaluation from a remote expert (that is, a teacher).
With distance learning, a distributed user community (social network) is created to conduct common virtual learning activities.
E-learning involves the timely delivery of training materials around the clock.
Distance learning has a huge advantage: thanks to it, people with disabilities in psychophysical development can receive higher education.
In modern universities, it is possible to implement several models of e-learning. For example, full-time and part-time students (that is, with traditional studies) can attend e-learning courses in specific disciplines. In addition, various tests (intermediate and final) and self-tests are often conducted among such students.
In addition, in modern universities, a system of electronic consultations is gradually being introduced, as well as remote seminars and chats, which are needed so that classmates can communicate on educational issues.
In modern times, a mixed form of education is widespread in higher education institutions, which is a kind of combination of distance learning technologies and traditional teaching in lecture halls. This combined form is characterized by the constant interaction of students with teachers, as well as with staff who provide technical support.
However, in order to successfully study in a "distance format", you need a high motivation to acquire knowledge in this way.
