Distance Learning with Two Alternative Education Options
Did you know that getting an education today or continuing your education doesn't necessarily mean that you must head to a post-secondary campus and attend lectures? Learners today are connected to classrooms via Distance Learning. Although this method of obtaining credentials has been around for quite some time, today it has mostly gone high-tech with students learning online from the comfort of their homes’ computer. They can also learn through print-based courses. This allows flexibility to accommodate the many time constraints imposed by personal responsibilities and commitments, reduces the demand on institutional infrastructure such as buildings, and much more. This unique approach is the most convenient way of acquiring knowledge today and earning a bachelor, masters, degree, diploma or associate accreditation.
At Centennial College in Toronto, Ont. students have two Distance Learning options. They can either study online or via Print-Based Distance Learning.
