Distance education can be fun and stressful at the same time. If you like doing activities while connected to the Internet and animations and other visual cues enhance your learning capability, then this is the mode of education for you. However, it can be stressful and challenging as well since you have to be able to manage your time and discipline yourself into doing things that are of utmost importance rather than logging into social networking sites and constantly checking e-mails.
Learning how to focus and prioritize are the keys to success in distance education. It takes some getting used to. But the experience is, indeed, rewarding especially if you are able to regularly meet your goals.
