What are the best (Cambridge) A-Levels distance learning schools?

The schools mentioned seem to be http://www.openstudycollege.com, http://www.icslearn.co.uk, http://www.distance-learning-cen..., A Levels | Brockenhurst College and www.ool.co.uk.

Does the school where you undertake a distance learning MBA matter?

Of course it does! In fact, I would go on to say it matters more than a regular full time. The thing about distance program is that, since there is not much physical interaction with the college and faculty, so much depends on the interface used. One of the places that I made a personal review of is icfai. They have built an in-house course ware that integrates with internet to give regular access and updates. There are student groups, discussion and self evaluations tools embedded within the group. I have read other ICFAI university reviews that confirm this. They've added that having such a participatory interface makes it motivating for students to keep the work on their study and deadline.

Will medical schools ever be in distance/online learning format?

I would say that medical school can incorporate some distance learning and online learning format. It’s already starting to happen at some medical schools where they’re using virtual reality to teach anatomy courses. It is hard to predict whether all of the curriculum will be online just because there are hands-on components that can't be easily replicated by simulation and or virtual reality.If medical school were to adopt more distance/online learning, it would be in the basic science courses and foundations where students can watch from home and come to an internship and or clerkship to integrate and apply their course knowledge to observing cases. The benefit to this would be that students have more time to gain hands-one experience and apply the foundations sooner rather than later.Check out some of the schools such as Harvard University that are already going online with their medical education curriculum:Home - HMX | Harvard Medical School - they’re embracing the “flipped classroom” formatCurriculum: Year One - UT Southwestern TX has their first year of medical school curriculum onlineCheck out this 2012 article from Stanford University: Online learning initiative reinventing medical school courses

How does distance learning exactly work?

Nowadays, distance learning courses take place online. As with any course, you usually have to buy a book and complete tests, projects, and/or written assignments. The only difference is that instead of handing in the assignments physically, you submit them online (through email or a discussion board). Class discussion usually take place in a "chat room" or something similar.

Tests themselves vary. Some teachers give you an essay or project which you have to submit by a certain time and date (ex: midnight on Oct. 26). Other teachers give you timed exams that you must complete by a certain time and date. These exams are timed using an online clock.

Yes, you can get the same degrees through distance learning. You cannot, however, complete any degree that requires a lab (like Biology or Chemistry). Most schools (including Harvard) offer distance learning, but you may be required to take a couple of courses at the school if you want a degree.

Finally, distance learning does provide the same job opportunities, depending on the school you receive the degree from. Obviously, a degree from Harvard will give you better opportunities than a degree from the University of Phoenix. In addition, you are limited with science-based careers because you cannot get a science degree through distance learning. The price varies from school to school, but it is the same price as "traditional" classes. That is, an English course physically located at Yale would be the same price as a distance learning English course at Yale.

Distance learning is best for liberal arts (social sciences, humanities, English, etc...).

What is the difference between distance learning and online learning?

Distance learning typcially involves you sitting in a classroom while an instructor via satellite instructs your class or vice versa. You can see them, they can see you. Many high schools use distance learning to offer their high school students college credits. Online learning is typically for college, you may meet once or twice, but the learning is done through an online server. Usually you have a book to read, projects to submit electronically and quizzes online to take. One online class I had even had power point slide presentations to help you study. Hope this helps!
