5 Benefits of Remote Learning

As we know, online learning and working from home has drastically increased over the past year as we get used to the ‘new normal’. While this is a big change, there are many benefits to online learning and it can actually be a much better option for a large number of people. Here we break down the top 5 benefits and what that means for you. 



Lower costs 

No doubt the biggest benefit of them all is the lower costs. Online courses are usually a lot more affordable due to the fact that there is no in-person learning. A variety of other factors also contribute to the lower costs including not having to commute to a campus/office everyday.  
There are many options available for online learning including part time bootcamps - like ours - and whole University degrees all from the comfort of your own home. This abundance of options ensures that you get the right fit for you without breaking the bank.  


Nothing can quite beat doing work or learning from the comfort of your own home. If you have the right environment available there is a certain peace that comes with it that you would not get in a public workspace. You won't have to endure the morning commute, uncomfortable classrooms, or even get dressed if you don’t want to! This flexibility can do wonders for your mental health and free up time to fully focus on your course.  
Saying this, though, it is important to keep yourself motivated and not get too comfortable to the point where you start falling behind - everything in balance! 


Structured Learning 

This is another great benefit of remote learning. You get the same structure and support from the instructors that you would ordinarily get in face to face courses but from the comfort of your own home - the best of both! Live lessons enable you to ask questions along the way and help to gain a deeper understanding of the work at hand. This is one of the key principles behind our bootcamps - we aim to provide constant support and guidance throughout your time with us and afterwards. Additionally, the course curriculum will be tailored to specific skills that employers look for, giving you the best opportunity at success in finding work when you finish.  

Demonstrates commitment 

Doing an online course looks great on your CV as it shows a keen interest in the subject. Due to you having to motivate yourself in a completely different way to a university course, for example, it’s also a great show of your willingness to learn. This is a great attribute to have and one that employers look for in new hires as it shows that you can go above and beyond. 

Develop key transferable skills  

Following on from the last point, there are many skills you can gain from doing an online course that look great on a CV. You will gain (or develop) skills such as initiative, independence and responsibility which all contribute to being a great candidate for new roles. Some also believe online learning gives more of an opportunity to develop critical thinking skills as students tend to ask more questions. All of these attributes will really benefit you when looking for jobs in the future!
