Distance learning focuses on delivering teaching to students who are not physically present in a traditional educational setup such as a class room. Distance education is often delivered through online classes along with few classroom hours. It provides students with a feel and essence of both the traditional methodology and also the comfort of studying from their homes at times that suit them. There has been a drastic increase in the number of students who take into distance learning recently with the advent of Internet. Distance education offers flexibility while also has the flip side that it lacks social interaction. But education being a life time journey, distance education is indeed an indispensable part of that journey.
