What is Remote Education?

Remote learning is distance education made possible through online platforms. The student and instructor are not physically present in a traditional classroom environment. Instead, content and learning happen through technology with tools such as discussion boards, video conferencing, and virtual assessments to recreate the in-person, face-to-face classroom over the internet.

Benefits of an Online College

Joining an online college has significant advantages over going to a traditional college. Online schools give you the option of part-time or full-time learning, as well as a flexible schedule.

  • Distance learning provides access to education for those who otherwise may have no other opportunities.
  • Distance learning makes education flexible.
  • Remote learning allows students to engage with their coursework at a more personalized pace.

Since 2011, about 80% of employers rely on online learning. It is the most popular form of education. 1
