Did you know that November 9-13 is National Distance Learning Week? Distance learning is just what it sounds like — instead of driving downtown to the local college to take a class or two, you take classes online from various colleges or websites that offer classes you might be interested in.
The benefit of taking online classes is that you can learn your subject at your own pace and in the comfort of your own home. If you work days, you can spend part of your evenings working on your classes; if you work nights you can spend part of your daytime hours working on the online class.
If you are wanting to get a bachelor’s or master’s degree you would obviously check the colleges that offer online classes to see what would appeal to you.
If you’re wanting to sharpen your sewing, crafting or quilting skills or learn a new skill like pattern making, you could run on over to PatternsThatFitYou.com and check out the wide variety of classes available there. BigBeautifulPeople.com also has a variety of classes and patterns for the plus sizes.
How many times have you registered for a class at your local fabric store or adult education classes and had them cancelled at the last minute because not enough people signed up to take the class. In addition, how many of those classes would you have liked to take but couldn’t because your work schedule didn’t allow you to sign up. Distance learning (online classes) are so convenient – no matter what your work schedule is, and no matter if you work better early in the morning or late in the evening, the online classes will work into YOUR schedule.
Give distance learning a try and see for yourself how easy it is to learn a new skill or sharpen the skills you already have. Once you try it, you’ll be hooked!
