Why does Online Learners have more homework than face-to-face learners?
Distance Learners will not have a face-to-face instructor to guide their learning through lectures and in-class activities. Alternatively, from the privacy of their homes, Distance Learners will have access to a plethora of resources.
Distance Learners will complete in-class learning modules, as well as in-class exploration exercises on their own. This experience may give the appearance of “more homework”, yet Distance Learning provides an opportunity for the entire learning experience to take place at home.
Welcome to an excellent opportunity for distance learning exploration. Instead of sitting in a lecture for two or three days a week, distance learners will have the flexibility to complete assigned tasks from anywhere in the world.
Although the format of delivery will be different than a face-to-face class, Distance Learners are exposed to the same amount of course material. Hence, make certain your structure your learning experience and manage your time diligently.
