Distance Learning with Two Alternative Education Options

By Jason White Subscribe to RSS | June 26th 2012 | Views:

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. The first option is the most popular with students enjoying 24-hour access to an online classroom. For this choice, students can study in one of 40 Distance Learning program options. The wide range of Certificate options for online Distance Learning at Centennial College includes: Applied Management Studies, Automotive Service Advisor, Business Writing, Effective Project Management, Event Planning/Meeting Management, Food Service Worker, Legal Office Assistant, Medical Transcriptionist, Office Bookkeeping, Professional Writing, Software Specialist and more. No matter what course they choose, students learn through communication with qualified instructors using online communication tools such as discussion boards and forums, and completing digital assignments. There is also a sense of classroom thanks to sharing emails with their classmates.

The other Distance Learning option at Centennial College is far more traditional and allows Learners to work from the comfort of their homes while studying from study material that is mailed to them. Certificate programs or courses that may be taken entirely by Distance Learning print-based correspondence include: Business Management – Entrepreneurial, Business Management – International, Business Management – Marketing, Cosmetics by Correspondence, Ophthalmic Medical Personnel - Phases 1 and 2 and SmartServe. A print-based course offered through the School of Containing Education consists of lessons, written assignments, exams and the various tools for success. This print-based distance learning experience allows students the flexibility to communicate with their instructor by email, phone, or regular mail. Upon registration in this Distance Learning option, participants will receive a Registration Confirmation Letter, Proctor Information Form, Student Guide and all of the educational materials required to complete the course.

Please note that to complete their Distance Learning, students are required to complete an in-person physical exam. Students are responsible for writing their exam on the first Saturday following the course end date. It is their responsibility to book the correct exam date within the time constraints of their course. Students who fail to write their exam by the due date will receive a zero on their exam.
