by Martin Williams, the Guardian

Although distance learning is not a new idea, the range of subjects you can study has taken off since the rise of online courses. Amy Woodgate, project coordinator of distance education initiative and Moocs at the University of Edinburgh says: “Many people think that there are certain programmes that you can’t do online and others that are better geared to online study, but actually we haven’t found that.” “You can learn almost anything online nowadays,” says Lloyd Bingham, who did an online preparatory course for a diploma in translation, run by London Metropolitan University.
