Distance Learning Program Information
Distance Learning is an online-based program that gives students additional practice outside the classroom and helps decrease the amount of time it takes inside the classroom to study for the GED test or to improve English language skills. Our Distance Learning program is user-friendly and can help the ESL or GED student to develop an individualized study plan. All distance-learning hours completed count towards the hours needed for the ESL and GED progress testing within the classroom.
Benefits to the Distance Learning Student:
- Ability to study outside of class at anytime
- Improves computer skills
- Provides additional practice in weakest areas; enhances student’s strong areas of study
- Independent study allows for working at own pace
- Prepares the student for classroom discussions and higher-level work
