    Default Distance education / study from home

    Just wondering what institutions (is that the right word?!) people are going through to study from home / external learning?

    I've used Open Colleges (formerly Cengage Education) and they've been fine. Just wondering what else is out there and what people have thought about them

    TIA

    I used CSU recently and they were pretty good. I did some bridging courses to prepare for uni.

    I think a lot of the bigger unis offer distance learning now, places like Charles Stuart, southern cross, university of New England do correspondence courses. I'm currently debating wether I do distance or go to my local uni for study so I'll be interested to see what people have to say

    I'm off campus through Monash- I just looked up the course I wanted and there was an off campus option.

    I am doing a cert iv in admin... So not a degree or anything
    But I do it through Oten. It is only costing me $500 because I am on track to finish in under one semester so I don't have to pay for the full 12 months and I borrow all my text books from the Tafe library

    HollyGolightly, when I was doing my child care course I enrolled with a Brisbane based company inspire education. I have heard open college, which is now cengage was also thompson direct as well as another training institute? i did my course entirely online (bar the placement for 4 weeks) in under 12 months... now i am a child care trainer, absolutely loving it! How did you find your course with cengage?

    I've used oten and OLI which i think is just Bris. North institute of Tafe now. I gave up both times.. Couldn't hack the distance ed think.

    I think the webpage is just called open learning but you can search courses across a bunch of unis, tafes and other education providers that offer courses by correspondence.
