Distance Learning Currently, computers already play a prominent role in many aspects of our lives from personal works to education fields. The Internet can also be invaluable in linking people culturally and socially (Hacker & Capehart, 1999). Geographically and historically, most universities in the world offer distance learning to students through the Internet, and the distance learning is becoming a new trend of the 21st academy. In particular, computers will permit a degree of individualization-personalized.

The major difference between an internet-based course and one presented in a traditional face to face environment is the physical isolation of the student. This isolation has a number of consequences. Firstly, there is less opportunity to get direct feedback to queries. In a lecture or seminar a student will, at least in principle, have the opportunity to seek immediate advice if they do not understand the material presented. In an online learning environment such contact will tend to be through
discussion forums. Using such channels requires some confidence in communicating
via the internet. Internet-based courses can offer a unique opportunity but do they also offer unique
challenges? Every college course whether taken on campus, by traditional distance
means challenges to any student whether they are just out of high school or an adult. That is the nature of higher education.

Distance study and especially can make particular demands on students. Recognizing specific difficulties will allow students to identify their abilities or skills which will help them in the long.

Education is something that everyone has to do to succeed and one’s attitude towards school is the only way they will succeed. If a student has a negative attitude and is influenced too much by their surroundings it will be much harder for them succeed whereas a student who likes learning and developing their intelligence then it will be a much better experience for the student. The sooner a student realizes the type of student they are the better they will be at helping themselves succeed in school.
