The programs are based on adult learning philosophy, known as andragogy. In andragogy, learners are assumed to be self-motivated, self-directed, and have accumulated life experiences that need to be accounted for in course design and delivery. All these considerations result in a totally different learning experience to that which many of the adults might have experienced during their earlier years in secondary education.

Here are three things you should make sure you do, two things you shouldn't do, and one thing that is absolutely forbidden, for online and distance learning.
We recommend that students new to online learning take the Open University UK online course "Living with the internet: learning online".
Just because the program is online doesn't mean that there will be no book reading at all. Many of the courses in a program will have "prescribed texts" that you will be expected to buy or will be included in the cost of the course.
In addition to these prescribed texts, there will also be "recommended texts" - and if they are not available online you may be expected to consult these in a library or buy them.
