Is Distance Learning for Me?

How well would distance learning courses fit your circumstances and lifestyle? To answer that question, first consider the kind of distance learning you are interested in. Typically, distance learning at UBC is available in two main formats:

  • Correspondence: independent study with instructional guidance, print materials and supplementary learning aids (ie. videos, CD-ROMs).
  • Online: collaborative study with opportunities  for interaction online with other students and the instructor – not independent study.

If you click on one of the links above, you will be led to a questionnaire that is intended to help you find out which format of distance learning might be suitable for you.
