Until recently, distance learning was a method used largely in tertiary, or in other words, post-secondary education. However, with the advancement of technology and influence of current circumstances, distance learning became a widespread method used in K-12 education as well. Moreover, there is the possibility that distance learning may become the norm for tertiary education sith the mere exclusion of applied sciences. The prevalence of distance learning at such a scale requires the students’ self-disciplining skills to improve to allow them to learn effectively in an environment that does not necessarily connote learning. One of the parameters to determine the efficiency and effectiveness of distance learning is the self-management skills of the students. The lack in self-management and irregularities in assessment criteria and monitoring may lead to an incompetent mass’ flooding the workforce, causing systems to break in every sector and division.
It is clear that in these days which the world is battling with a global pandemic, distance learning is the most viable alternative to prevent disruptions to educations. To ensure the continuity of education amidst quarantines and curfews, authorities worldwide are adopting new methods and models in an effort to show that education is about an individual’s desire and will to learn rather than location.
