Who doesn't like doing things in their comfort zone? And when this thing is studying, it is all the more convenient if you can do it in the comfort of your home. In today's era, while people may remain separated by physical geography, technology continues to bridge the gap. Online learning platforms have made it easier for students who are living thousands of miles from the educational institute to still study and stay in sync with the ongoing chapters and courses. Students no longer need to move around the world to fulfill their academic goals or miss out completely. As long as internet access is available, so is an endless variety of educational opportunities for such learners. In a world where people have 20 things vying for their attention at one time, distance learning is a boon for all aspiring graduates, offering them the flexibility to learn and educate themselves from home.
Distance learning solutions have opened a new window allowing everyone, right from international students facing visa issues to students with restricted mobility having equal access to the world's best educational opportunities in the comfort of their own living rooms. Today's distance learning programs for prospective college students, undergraduates, postgraduates and professionals are held to the same high standards as campus-based programs. Not only do students gain access to the same resources, knowledge and transferable skills in an environment that better suits their lifestyle, they also benefit from targeted support services for students in distance learning programs. Learning has no limits and it never stops, and with the technology developing every day, learning truly has no borders. In this issue of Higher Education Review Magazine, we have showcased a list of 'Top 10 Most Promising Distance Learning Institutes 2019'. We strongly believe that it is important to bring such institutions to the limelight, so that, their ideologies and methodologies can inspire other institutions as well as students to pursue distance learning courses. Hope this feature helps you in your future endeavors and we achieve our mission.
