Besides, the distance learning facility also enables employed professionals, housewives and people from different countries to enrol and successfully finish useful courses offered by numerous institutes, regardless of the geographic distance.

In effect, there are many fundamental reasons why students willbe better offattending offline lessons. To start, distance learning may reduce students’ efficiency and productivity. When studying in schools, students will be motivated by both strict supervision from teachers and pressure from theircounterparts. Meanwhile, teachers can better observe whether students haveassimilatedthe knowledge so as to adjust teaching materials and progresses promptly. By stark contrast, students, especially those who lack self-discipline and easily get indulged incosy environments, will be less efficient and productive. // Another reason is that remote learningdeprivesstudentsofface-to-face interaction with classmates and teachers, which, in the long term, will render their people skillswithering away.
