The Benefits Problems and Features of Distance Education

It is very important for societies to have a huge number of literate people. It enhances the experiences of people and makes learning easier. However, we have two sides of the argument. there are people that believe distance learning is helpful and improves learning skills. on the other hand, there are people that deny these facts and are against distance education. They find that distance learning is useless and harmful to our society and we have to stop it. Different thoughts about distance education do not stop this type of learning and we always respect others’ opinions even if we believe that they are wrong or are against our thoughts.
People who believe that distance education is helpful to prove so by providing evidence: Firstly, distance learning means that we can study at any time or anywhere we want, and we can also contact the professor by e-mail. It is also quieter than working in a classroom as classes are often too noisy for concentration. The students do not have to travel to classes and leave their homes, work, families, and friends. Also, distance learning increases literacy in the communities. This can help needy families to enhance their education. It also promotes job retention and career advancement (Thomas).
Secondly, it helps people save time. Some people do not have enough time to study, which causes them to face many difficulties. for example, people who are married do not have time to study because they want to spend their time with their spouse and children. It they attend class, they will be away from their families and they will spend the majority of their time in these classes. Furthermore, they have jobs, and they have to divide their time for their family, jobs, and education. It becomes difficult for them to have three main things in their lives. They always will be busy and struggle, which means that they are under pressure and cannot focus on all of these things. People who have difficult subjects find it difficult&nbsp.to attend all of their classes.&nbsp.
