  • I'm Leigh-Anne Perriman.

  • I'm programme lead for

  • a masters in online

  • and distance education programme.

  • And prior to that, for many years,

  • I was a tutor in

  • online and distance learning

  • across the Arts.

  • While there's no typical

  • distance-learning course

  • the length can range from anything

  • from a few months to several years,

  • depending on the institution and

  • the subject being studied.

  • Students can stay motivated

  • when they're studying by

  • trying to apply their learning

  • to contexts

  • they find interesting

  • perhaps something to do with work

  • or something to do with their

  • family setting

  • and choosing a study pathway

  • that fits their own interests: that can be

  • a real motivating power.

  • When you're in your third or

  • fourth year of distance learning,

  • it can be both easy and

  • difficult to stay motivated.

  • By that time,

  • you may have what we call

  • 'study lag': so

  • after several years,

  • you may be thinking,

  • Ugh, yet another year of studying: yet

  • another year where I can't have that

  • social life that I wanted,

  • and where I have to be

  • continually making compromises

  • in terms of getting the time

  • needed to study.” However,

  • in the third or fourth year,

  • the end is also in sight,

  • so there could be incredible motivating

  • power in thinking,

  • Ah, it's only another nine months

  • and then I'll have this qualification.”

  • So, it's a two-way thing really.

  • If a student gets a grade that's

  • lower than they're expecting,

  • that can be a real de-motivator:

  • they can end up feeling really fed up

  • and sometimes wonder whether

  • it's worth carrying on.

  • At that stage, it's vital to talk

  • to your tutor.

  • They can help you to

  • understand whether

  • you've actually answered the question

  • that was setoften that

  • can be a problemand

  • they can help you to plan

  • for getting a higher grade in future.

  • As a distance-learning tutor,

  • I'd be very surprised

  • if a student didn't encounter at

  • least one crisis during

  • their course of study.

  • Distance learning involves fitting in study

  • around other aspects of your life

  • and so there will be multiple points

  • of which there are challenges

  • and crisesso yeah, perfectly normal.

  • They should communicate with their tutor,

  • who will be best placed

  • to help them through this crisis

  • help them manage their study strategies.

  • And they should also talk with

  • their peers.

  • Other students can be a huge

  • source of support.

  • Go the distance.

I'm Leigh-Anne Perriman.
