Why do I choose distance learning?

Now they say a lot about the Russian education system, that it is necessary to improve it. In contrast, it can be given as an example the education system of Germany or the United States.

There, children from a very early age are helped to determine their inclinations, professional disposition, and children develop them by attending certain classes of the corresponding profile. In Russia, there is no such thing. We get a wide range of knowledge, but the school does not give specialization as such. But instead of waiting for when everything will change (and you have to wait no matter how long), you need to start acting yourself! As the sage said, if you want to change the world, start with yourself.

Yes, many applicants currently go to universities, because it is very prestigious to study there and on that. But later, when studying is behind and a crust on your hands, you begin to realize that you made the wrong choice and you don’t want to work by profession ... This is where distance learning comes to the rescue.

Having an education, it is still possible (if not easier than without it, then it is still possible if desired) to find a good job. There is something to live on, you are no longer 17, and you are approximately aware of your life course and what you want to become ... So, what to do next? It’s not possible for everyone to go to the second full-time study, but not all enterprises are ready to let go of student workers at the session ... Distance learning remains.

The final advantages of choosing this type of training are its advantages:

It’s not necessary to leave your city, just access to the Internet, and now it’s practically no problem You can do it, depending on your free time, most importantly, adhering to the general terms. But remember: self-discipline is also important here! 

Distance learning does not imply that you are studying CAM - teachers do not leave you, they also help you. Moreover, this process becomes much more interesting than usual thanks to the technologies of our computerized society.

  • Firstly, you can chat in a chat mode with both teachers and other students.
  •  Secondly, this project offers the use of a virtual whiteboard: in real time, the teacher writes on the whiteboard what he wants to convey to you, and you instantly get this information on your screen.
  • Thirdly, this screen can be made common, that is, both people on opposite sides of the Internet can use it at once.
  • Fourth, the user-friendly interface also provides for the transfer of files (pictures, etc.).

Having become independent, you yourself can afford to pay for tuition. Therefore, all responsibility for your successes and failures is only on you.

Finally, you can do what you are interested in and need - and this is the main guarantee of the success of any business! A person who wants something - looking for ways that does not want - finds reasons. And success is always achieved by one who approaches the business with burning and enthusiasm!
