Advantages you learn in your own time
Disadvantages i haven't found any personally
I joined Learn Direct online two weeks ago, after long deliberation, and loking into other courses.The one thing that put me off in the beginning was that once you have enrolled on the Learn Direct website, you then have to enroll in the Learn Direct Centre in you area before you can access your course.
That was until I saw the box saying TICK HERE TO ENROLL IN A VIRTUAL ONLINE CENTRE. Perfect for me. Upon doing this, I realised there are no virtual centres in my area, but that doesn't matter as you can enrol anywhere.Prices:
The prices seem to vary in each part of the country, so this is where enrolling online comes in handy, as you can pick the cheapest. After all you shouldn't have to pay a fortune for the privilege of learning something new.
Lo and behold, the next morning an e-mail arrived saying thankyou for my interest and would I please fill out a short form to say I had enrolled with learn Direct and that they had given me guidance on my course.
Anyway I enrolled online. The next step was to fill in a form entailing my phone number (so they can contact you to arrange payment etc) and your e-mail address.
Well, I personally don't like giving out my phone number on the net, so I just entered my e-mail address, thinking if nothing came of it I would phone them in person.
I personally have had no problems with pre assessments and post assessments, like I know some people on the Learn Direct website have said they have encountered.
All I can say is that every site has glitches, and I will probably come across some before long. I am enjoying my course very much and for me it's a great way to learn because I can fit it in around everything else.
You can learn online (like I am), or you can learn in a learn direct centre near you. Some of these have creche facilities (you will have to check out your individual centre for more info).
Help is available to you at all times in the form of a tutor if you study online (although not all courses assign tutors). There is the help of message boards. (always good for a read). There are also learn direct staff available on the other end of the phone, or in the centre.
