Currently I am updating my Certificate IV in Training and Assessment by completing the unit ‘TAEASS502 – Design and develop assessment tools’. I am doing this online with MRWED. This is the first time I have ever studied online and I can see how it has its good and bad points…
Its good points are that:
- You can study any time you choose or want to and have all the resources/materials you need at your fingertips.
- You can hand in your tasks/assignments at your own pace.
The not so good points are:
- There is a lack of real-life contact with fellow students and tutors.
There are all sorts of courses and activities online that people of any age and ability can undertake these days to keep one’s mind and body active and young. So, hop online and see what might interest you. Disability or age can no longer be a barrier to continuous learning.
