Distance Learning Systems – Tapping into Technology

Distance Learning Systems is a new method of learning made possible by technology and the internet. It allows you to get a degree or specialized education through the internet. This is one of the ways that technology has evolved our day to day activities to add convenience to our lifestyle.

Years ago, in order to enjoy working in any professional field, you needed to have money, time, and enough energy to complete the training. At that time, you could not afford to not work or even find work. Today, thanks to Distance Learning Systems, you can get the same education in the comfort of your own home.

Technology in EducationIn order to enter in the medical field for example, to become a Respiratory Therapist, Paramedic or an LPN, you needed more than just a computer and internet. Today, you can get formal nursing education online. RN classes are one of the most popular educations you can get online. Practical education may be scheduled in a qualified location, and this will be the only travel you’ll need to do. You will be given credit by exam and get your license when you pass the test.

This amount of flexibility is one of the advantages of Distance Learning Systems. Instead of going to a traditional classroom, you enter a virtual classroom with videos, reading material and other interactive resources. This is ideal for different types of learners. Because you are not confined in a single medium, you can read, watch a video, or listen to an audio file, whichever is more effective for you.

If there is a downside to Distance Learning Systems, it would be the fact that you need to be responsible for yourself. You have freedom when it comes to time or studying; success will depend completely on your dedication.

Distance Learning Systems does not merely teach you skills you need to start a new career, it also trains you to be responsible, dedicated and pro-active.

RN Online Video Classes from the comfort of your own home

There is not much difference between a traditional, classroom-based course and an online course. Both types of courses have definitive start and end dates. Our course tutorials range from 4 weeks to 10 weeks depending on the course and content that you need to cover to satisfactorily prepare for the exam. You will do many of the same activities online that you would do in a traditional class — read texts, take notes, ask questions, write papers (especially in English Comp), and have discussions. All the class discussions and materials are delivered to you online.

The significant difference between the two types of classes is that, instead of meeting in a classroom at a specific time each week throughout the course, you, your classmates and your tutor will be connected by DLSI’s system, video class, servers, and your personal computer via the Internet. You do not have to “go” to your online class at a scheduled time each week. If your schedule conflicts with the live lecture time, a recorded version will be available for you to view. Instructors respond to questions outside of class with in 48 hours throughout the week. You can even take a tour of the online classroom before you enroll! If you are interested in enrolling or want more information about how you can become an RN through our online video classes, please contact a Regional Program Administrator at 888-955-3276.
