In correspondence courses the students were able to enroll for courses of their choice; the study material of the course was sent to the students through postal services and the students had to send their assignments in a similar manner. But there were chances of study material and assignments getting lost on their way to their destination. There was no direct interaction between the students and instructors. Further, at that time correspondence courses were not considered equivalent to regular mode of education.

But now with the introduction of internet and computer applications in Distance Learning it has evolved as an alternative to regular mode of education. The study materials are sent to the students and they also send their assignments via internet and hence there are no chances of them getting lost in any way.

Further, these courses are recognized and accepted by the educators and employers provided if the courses are pursued from reputed institutions.

Distance Learning Courses provide several benefits to the students. They provide much flexibility to the students like flexibilities of location time and pace. These courses allow the students to study from their home comfortably without attending any regular classes at a time when they feel convenient. The students are given the freedom to study according to their learning capabilities without any peer pressure.
