Even if you are not formally registered to study online with a formal institution, you can still study online. That is the beauty of the resourcefulness of the World Wide Web today. As we speak, it continues to expand. Many readers never had an opportunity to attend college or university in their heyday. This was for any number of reasons. But if the thirst for knowledge and career aspirations is still strong, you can now get into college or university.
There are a number of logistical reasons as to why more and more higher learning institutions are opening their doors far wider on the internet than ever before. Now is not the time to go into this. Now is the time to simply relax and wax lyrical on why it is to your benefit to begin studying online. Now, by studying online, we do not mean that you will be required to spend hours of your study time online. While the tutorial material is user and reader friendly, you can store these in PDF format and return to it whenever needed.
Offline, you can still carry on with your necessary reading, research and writing work. The online portals are quite useful in helping you to submit your work assignments on time. You no longer need to post these if you are studying via correspondence. Just a simple two minute exercise gets your work posted on time. There will usually be confirmation that your assignment has been received in good order. And your tutor or lecture can mark your paper at leisure, given that he now has a lot more papers to read.
By the time he is done, he can then post his remarks back to via email or through your designated portal.
