In Response To: PhD/EdD by distance learning (mcsensei)

A lot of courses nowadays, especially Post-Grad are offered by distance/online as an alternative to the very same on campus course and the certificate at the end shows no difference.
There may or may not be a short 1-week on-campus intensive option to attend with lots of lectures, but otherwise what would be lectures, seminars and workshops on campus are online replaced by podcasts, pdf readings, powerpoints, secure chat rooms, wikis, etc.

Many post-grad things, especially MAs, PhDs, etc involve a lot of reading, research and practical experiments which get written up; it matters little where you physically are for those.
in many cases where the choice is on campus or distance/online, the decision comes down to your preferred learning style, lesson style and your time management abilities.
