What do you think about distance learning/online education ?

I recently completed my bachelors degree & I,m planning to do master degree program. but unfortunately here in Afghanistan universities does not have Master's degree program (due to 3 decades of war, everything including education system weakened & till now universities are not allowed to offer Master's degree program).

I do not have the means & can not afford to go abroad & attend traditional classrooms sessions but only distance learning and online

Your insight on the question here will help me in taking a right decision.

Thank you.

    Jun 24 2012: It all depends on how 'hungry' you are for further studies. If I were you and distance learning was the only way I could achieve my post graduate qualification - I would go for it. Keep your goal in front of you and everything else will fall in place.
