Understanding Distance learning or online study Kenya
Distance learning in Kenya is a field of education that focuses on delivering education to students who are not physically present in the institution of learning/university or college.
Online learning aims to provide access to students when the lecturers or professors and the learners are separated by distance. This therefore means that the student does not have to attend classes in person, the learner may undergo training by help of technology. You may only be required to present yourself physically if you are doing practical courses.

Almost everyone is looking to improve his or her skills through education but the time is not available. For those working, companies may not be willing to give study leaves. This therefore means that for you to acquire the extra education skills and at the sometime continue working, distance or online learning is the solution.
