From Jamie Littlefield:
Navigating the world of online learning can be a challenge. Issues such as accreditation, financial aid, and diploma acceptance make it difficult for prospective students to get started.
About Distance Learning is designed to give students all the information they need to choose a legitimate online school and complete their studies with confidence. Having been an independent study student as well as an independent study teacher, I'm excited to share the information I've learned along the way. Please connect with me on LinkedIn.
