5 Distance learning is self-directed learning

Everybody does some informal self-directed learning. You do this when you need to learn something new at home or at work and there is nobody to teach you.

Self-directed learning skills help us to be lifelong learners.

If you want to be a self-directed distance learner, it helps if you have a strong commitment to learning and are pretty good at organizing your time and your work.

You will have an instructor to help you but you will decide when to do the work and how long to work on something.

You will be doing a lot of research and activities on your own.

Some people learn better without other people around them. They find it less distracting.

Some people find it difficult to stay focussed when they are trying to learn on their own.
