The Benefits of Distance Learning
Online learning, or e-learning, sometimes referred to as distance learning, offers several advantages for people looking to develop a new curriculum leading to a Degree in Naturopathy and Holistic Medicine. Our Holistic Medicine School is unique in the calibre of courses offered and the variety of topics – more than 60 different topics to choose from in Naturopathy and Holistic Medicine. The benefits of distance learning are many – let’s take a look at some of these below.
Online learning enables you to take your courses wherever you are in the world, at any time, from the comfort of your own home or office.
At the Da Vinci Institute of Holistic Medicine you can pace yourself – work early morning, lunchtime, in between children’s activities or late at night from the comfort of your own home or office. Existing parents would never entertain the idea of spending 4 or more years in a university campus – children always have first priority. Now parents can take their degrees while attending to their children’s needs from the comfort of their own home.
It is also far less expensive, saving you thousands on accommodation, travel, meals and other expenses. Earning a Doctorate at the Da Vinci Institute of Holistic Medicine is one-tenth of the price of other more traditional Naturopathic schools.
You can complete accredited degree courses in Naturopathy and Holistic Medicine – Bachelors, Masters and Doctoral degrees – we accept students with no past education in the biological sciences, straight from school or mature students making a career change.
At the Da Vinci Institute of Holistic Medicine we do not only focus on the ease of learning online or at a distance, but we emphasise the importance of clinical training at Holistic Medicine Centers of repute around the world, such as the Da Vinci Holistic Health Center in Larnaca, Cyprus.
Below there are some benefits of online learning listed.
1. CHOOSE WHATEVER PROGRAM YOU WANT!
You can pick the program that you desire in traditional education, too, but that would involve traveling away from home, living in a completely unknown city, and struggling in an extremely competitive learning environment. With online education, you can take any program or course present in traditional four-year universities.
We offer Bachelors, Masters and Doctoral degrees in Naturopathy and Holistic Medicine.
Forget about attending classes for hours, sitting in an uncomfortable chair, and suffering from back pain by the end of the day. With online education you choose to study in whatever environment you want.
All lectures and needed materials are provided via online platforms, so you’ll easily access them from the comfort of your home. You will not take public transport to get to campus, you won’t have to spend money on gas for your car, you won’t have to get up early to get dressed for class… the list of conveniences goes on and on.
Comfort is a strong advantage, but it can go both ways. You mustn’t allow yourself to get too comfortable when studying from home, so it would be best to abandon the couch for few hours a day and set up an inspirational studying environment in your home. All you need is a large desk and a nice, comfortable chair.
3. SELF-PACED LEARNING
The benefits of distance learning means that the students can start completing the targets at any time, and he/he can arrange a learning schedule that meets his/her individual needs.
When you enroll in a traditional college program, you’ll have to forget about work, hobbies, and even family. In such a setting, studying has to be a priority. That’s why many single parents and people who work decide to forget all about their dreams to get a higher degree.
A self-paced system enables them to make progress with rhythm that suits them. This type of system does not require attending live sessions; you can access the materials at any time that works for you. If you have to work or take care of your home and children during the day, you can study at night. That’s an advantage the traditional educational system cannot beat.
Watch videos and webinars at your leisure whenever you have time – this is a huge advantage compared to being on time for physical classes.
4. LOWER COSTS
If you were going to attend one of the traditional 9 Naturopathic Colleges in America and Canada for 4 years to qualify with a Naturopathic Doctor degree (N.D) it would cost close to $300,000! Yes, this is three hundred thousand – not a spelling mistake! With our blended learning approach, it will cost one tenth this amount for a Doctorate.
5. CAREER CHANGE AND ADVANCEMENT
Students can take online courses and even complete entire degrees while working, while in-between jobs, or while taking time to raise a family. This academic work will explain any discontinuity or gaps in a resume as well. Also, earning a degree can show prospective employers that you are ambitious and want to remain informed and prepared for any new challenges.
Many of our students are moving away from their existing career to become health professionals as they have a calling to help people. This allows them to begin with the basics provided in the Bachelors of Naturopathy and Holistic Medicine and move directly to the Masters and Doctoral degree – its an easy pathway for non-health professionals.
6. IMMEDIATE GRADES AND FEEDBACK
Anyone who has graded papers knows it can get tedious, and it’s time-consuming. Many of the most popular standardized tests, in fact, still rely on evaluation techniques that slow results. With our online examinations, our learning platform automatically marks your assignments and places your marks in your grade book automatically – no waiting wondering what your course mark is before moving on to the next module.
Tutors are only an email away if you get stuck and require help.
These are just a few of the many advantages of taking online or distance classes. Students in our online degree programs in Naturopathy and Holistic Medicine are able to manage their time, learn the materials that are presented, and complete assignments using their own schedule.
Applications at the Da Vinci Institute of Holistic Medicine are welcome from all potential students wanting a career in Naturopathic and Holistic Medicine.
