    Anyone here currently enrolled on a distance education program, or at least have tried it? What are your thoughts on it? You can share your thoughts even if you have not tried it.

    I'm currently am enrolled and damn, didn't expect it to be this hard even though I'm an honor roll student my whole high school life. I don't get to see my classmates, my professors, who I'm working with and OnePlus ForumsSocial Media is just a tab away. Too many distractions. :/

    Yes, I am supposed to be studying now but... :D

    I'm distanced from my education. That is, not interested at all.

    I did most of my graduate studies through the Rochester Institute of Technology distance learning program. It was very good. Of course self-discipline and ignoring distractions is key.
    Probably helped that there were no smartphones back when I was doing distance learning!

    I go to uni regularly but half of the year is done from home, namely the phases where you don't have lessons but learn for exams and write your home works. And damn, it's hard. I get lonely, if I don't force myself to meet with the other students. I don't have motivation to learn when I don't visit University over the day, which makes it extremely hard not to procrastinate. I don't think that I could do a full-time home study
