Benefits of Distance Learning

distance learning

According  to Merriam Webster, distance learning is a method of study where teachers and students do not meet in a classroom but use the Internet, e-mail, online facilitation etc., to have classes.

“Simply put, distance learning is when students are separated from teachers/lecturers and peers.”

Don’t let anyone deceive you or try to discourage you from getting your degree through distance learning mode like National Open University of Nigeria.

distance learning

There are lots of reasons why distance learning is simply the best, i will list some of those reasons in this article.



1. Study anywhere in the world

You’re not constrained to choose a university near your hometown or in a city you wouldn’t mind living in.

Because your learning is delivered online you don’t have to stay in one place throughout your degree. You can travel or move towns and not disrupt your education.

south south noun centre

In National open university of Nigeria, you can easily change your study centre to your new location if need be.



2. You don’t need to put your life on hold

It’s possible to fit your education around all your other responsibilities.

I know students who volunteer, care for family members or raise children. I know one woman who homeschools her children while studying herself and another who continued her degree even while pregnant and then studied while caring for her newborn baby.


Lots of students are able to work part time or even full time while studying. This means you’ll graduate with years of valuable work experience.

If you’ve been able to work while studying you may get a head start against other students applying for the same jobs after university.


Are you keen to move out of home, or start saving for travelling or even a mortgage ‚Äď you can do all this and more while studying.



3. Study when and how you want


This is the motto of our great institution (National Open University of Nigeria).


Because the majority of your study will be independent and flexible, you can choose when in your day and week you study.

Maybe you’re an early bird and perform better in the mornings before work or your family wakes up. Or maybe (like me) you’re a night owl and would prefer to study in the evenings.


distance learning


Similarly, maybe you find you achieve more by studying little and often, 30-60 minutes every day. Or maybe you can only study in long bursts so prefer to get through your workload at the weekend. With distance learning, when you study is up to you.



4. Save time travelling to university

You won’t have to spend time travelling to and from face-to-face classes.

As your studying is completed online you’ll be able to save time and spend this extra time getting more done or relaxing.



5. Gain extra skills

Distance learning teaches you to work independently, prioritize your workload, problem solve, motivate yourself and persevere even when you just want to give up.

These skills are crazy valuable for your career or future studies.



6. Lower costs

Distance learning courses are often cheaper than those at traditional campus universities.

Lower costs mean lower final debt. Or it may even mean you’re able to pay off some or all of your education as you study.


Do you know if you got admission in other schools in a different state you will also look for accommodation and pay other basic bills you need to set up but in distance learning like NOUN, all  you need is a good phone/pc with data.

distance learning



7. Study in your pyjamas

I’ve left the best until last. If you want to study in your pyjamas, you can!

(Just make sure you remember to put some real clothes on if you video chat with your tutor or during online facilitation!)

So once I’ve decided  that distance learning was right for me I had to choose my university.

distance learning


I researched lots of institutions online but a lot of them lacked what I really wanted.


Distance learning is a lot more flexible than traditional face-to-face studying or regular studying. But lots of providers weren’t flexible enough for me.


Some only offered compulsory modules so I would have no choice in modules. Others were strict with how long you had to complete a degree. And I couldn’t find many that allowed for breaks in your study either.


I then was advised to apply in National open university Nigeria since I have some experience in regular university and work. so looked it up online.

After reviewing and learning the system for some months I knew this was where I wanted to study so I called a friend of mine  and spoke to her on how I can register and she answered all my questions and got me signed up within 24 hours at one of the study centres in Abuja with the help of my faculty officer.


Everything happened so quickly. I rushed to buy stationery.  I went home and was much excited about my decision to study at Noun and my successful admission.



I was actually terrified of going back to school because work and business has shifted my focus though I love education and I always place myself to personal development.


If you meet me and I didn’t tell you I’m not a graduate, you won’t know because I always try to be ahead with technology and knowledge which inspired me to be a website designer, digital marketing and business consultant  but I knew everything would be different this time.


I still didn‚Äôt know how to study effectively with National open university of Nigeria since it’s a unique university, but my mindset has changed especially for distance learning since i joined a platform like NounGeeks that always guide NOUN students and put them through the whole learning process.


I had dropped my passion to study at Akwa ibom state university  and was determined to work my butt off at National open university of Nigeria.


I chose to study with  NOUN because it has all the benefits of distance learning I just described. But it also has many more.

I’m a tourism student from Abuja study centre, you can visit my profile and add me as friends, you can also connect with other Nounites on NounGeeks when you sign up on the platform.

Chapter one: Introduction

  This chapter is the introduction of the entire report. Here you present the historical background of the study. The rationale behind the work is explained in this chapter. It states the reason for choosing the given research problem which is of general area of concern. Here you convince your readers that there is a problem which you want to solve.

 This chapter should be divided as follows;

  • ¬† Background of the study

   Here, the researcher gives a general description of the area of study. In doing so, he tries to paint a scenario depicting an ideal and perfect state of affair in the area of study.


  • Statement of problem¬†

  Here, the researcher shows dissatisfaction in the existing system and the need for it to be remedied. The problem should therefore be clearly and unambiguously stated. The researcher has to show evidence that the problem really exists and how this problem can also remain a general problem in the larger area of concern.


  • Motivation

The researcher justifies the need for working on the subject matter.


  • Aims and Objectives

  The researcher states the aims/objective of the research. What the research will achieve if successfully completed.


  • Purpose of the Study

This is where the reason of the research is stated i.e. the intended solution i.e. what the research is to achieve or solve. State reasons why you want to spend your time, resource, energy, strength in carrying out research.


  • Significance of the Study

  State the worth or value of your research. You state or show its contribution to knowledge. State the use of the study when it is successfully completed. Will this study be worth the amount of resources about to be committed into it? There is need here for a sentence that will sell the outcome of the study to the probable consumers.


  • Organization of the Work

Here, the researcher states the chapter by chapter and section by section arrangement of the study report.


  • Definition of Terms¬† ¬†

The investigator tries to define all the unfamiliar concepts or terms in his report so that his reader can easily follow his discourse without much difficulty. The terms should be clearly defined in the language every reader can understand. It is always helpful to arrange the terms or concepts in alphabetical order so as to make for a more meaningful reading.

Chapter Two: Literature Review

  To select a research problem the investigator has to review related literature so that he can learn about the previous studies which have been carried out in this area of interest.

  By going through the previous work already accomplished in his area of study, the investigator can now discover the theoretical framework upon which his new research work will be based. 

  When conducting literature review we can either paraphrase it or quote the passage. In paraphrasing, the reviewer writes in reported speech i.e. reporting in his own words. But in quoting, indenting of the passage is done. By indenting, the passage is typed (single space) at the center of the page leaving appreciable margin on each of the two sides.

Chapter Three: Research Methodology

‚Äź¬†Design consideration

‚Äź¬†Design architecture

‚Äź This is a plan showing how information associated with a given research¬† ¬†problem should be collected and analyzed. In other words, it is a plan of an investigation aimed at identifying variables and relationship with one another. ¬†

Getting Ready for the new semester (NOUN)

  Once you have your funds ready in your portal, do not rush to register your courses and exams for the new semester till NOUN releases results for the just concluded semester so that you will know if you have any carryover you need to fix into the new semester without exceeding your credit units.



¬† ¬†We at NounGeeks follows these steps each semester of our studies especially the part that we wait for the release of previous results before registering our courses and exams for the new semester so we don’t have carryovers waiting for us to come back to later on in the future, but if you don’t want, feel free to do it your way though.
