There is a lot of debate around the topic of online distance learning and whether students who study through universities such as Unisa actually get the same benefits as 'on campus' students who attend lectures throughout the week.

The truth is that some people actually study better on their own while others prefer a more hands-on interactive environment. Whatever the case, there are pro's and con's to both and no-one can really say that one is better than the other unless they are comparing the standards of education between different universities/colleges and that really comes down to the "type" of university/college you are speaking of.

With the Unisa applications opening soon, and with online distance learning in mind, lets explore some of the benefits from just such a university:

Accessibility: Content is usually easily accessible for everyone. Content is shared through online platforms, online journals and other resources which learners have access to through their online login credentials. Forums are there for students to interact and connect while relevant course material, books and helpful guides are always at their fingertips.

Mobility: Training materials and course work can be accessed through different devices, such as smartphones and tablets. This means that Unisa can reach a wide range of students through technology which means that education is not limited to people from different economic or social backgrounds.

Interactivity: Learners are able to engage with lecturers, tutors and other students in order to better understand the content and course work that they are working through.

If you think that these benefits will help you make a decision about studying at Unisa why not take a look at the courses they offer and find out how to apply here: www.unisa.ac.za
