Dear Aspirant,

Nice question and happy that you approached us for getting an answer to this.

The most common mistake students are making today is of "considering online / distance learning programmes as a substitute to formal / full time classroom learning and as a tool/technique to get them a job or as equivalent to a classroom taught course". This is very unfortunate and a part of the blame goes to the way such online / distance learning courses are advertised and marketed.

Some facts about online / distance learning courses:

- These courses are not a substitute to formal education (10+2+3/4/5+2)
- Diplomas / Degrees secured through Distance learning mode are not recognised and accepted by industry for employment for freshers
- Online / distance learning courses are for value addition and not for career foundation level
- Online / distance learning courses below the tenure of 3 months are useless.
- Online / distance learning courses are an additional mode of education provided by technological advancement but is not an option to formal training
- Online / distance learning courses are not favourable for fresh graduates for securing a job
- Online / distance learning courses require great amount of self-study
- Online / distance learning courses need the candidate to be technology savvy
- Online - distance learning courses do not provide the social networking factor

For whom are online / distance learning courses actually meant for?

Online / distance learning courses are majorly beneficial for the below:

- Working professionals - having experience of minimum 3 years
- Candidates who are minimum graduates and looking for a PG or a job
- Candidates who are under-graduates and who wish to learn advanced or additional things / soft skills which will help them in their placements or post-graduation
- Candidates who are frequently travelling due to job assignments or job role like marketing, business development
- Candidates who are working and cannot continue education through classroom attendance mode of education
- Candidates who have physical fitness limitations
- Candidates who want to upgrade their domain knowledge in order to keep themselves updated and current to the industry expectations
- Candidates who want to remain connected to the changing industry demands and be updated about new avenues and opportunities
- Candidates who are home-makers, entrepreneurs, researchers, teachers

Best wishes

Hi There,

Excellent answer given by Dr.Anand.

Just adding to it. Please note that an Online or Distance courses are beneficial and valid and hence are running successfully.
Only issue as mentioned by Dr. Anand is that they are pursued by the wrong qualified person and for wrong reasons.

These are add on courses for professionals who are stuck at one point in their career graph and are looking for moving ahead
Since the professionals are already experienced knowing the basics of the industry, they do not need practical exposure, just like fresh Graduates, who have no industry experience.

Hope this helps.
Wish you good luck....
