Why good feedback should matter to you as a lifelong learner!

Distance Learning

Here at ADL, we are a community of life-long learners who understand that you should never stop learning and discovering new things about the world. The day we leave school is not the day that we finish exploring new ideas or taking up new skills, but instead an opportunity to follow the things that interest you, rather than having them dictated to you by a class curriculum.

Because we all lead busy and unpredictable lives, distance learning is an excellent compromise between immersion and practicality. It is challenging to create an environment where you can submerge yourself in your interests while also maintaining the rest of your responsibilities. By having a self-led system, you can fit your studies around work and family while not sacrificing educational integrity.


A big concern over distance learning is the quality of the teaching and the pedagogical environment. If your course is online and you are never in a classroom, can your learning quality match that experience?

The short answer is yes. But the slightly longer answer is that we provide two things that make the online experience just as good as the in-person experience. The first is our unlimited tutor support from field experts; we’ve gone the extra mile to assemble a team who can guide you through your course, answer any questions you have and, most importantly…

Two, feedback! A vital component to improve your knowledge and skills is the feedback loop. This is the way to enhance competence in any area where you have weaknesses. Without it, your blindspots will grow, and you’ll find yourself out of depth. This is why having an expert to guide you through the vast amounts of knowledge available to you is vital; when you stumble, they’ll be able to catch you and point you in the right direction.


Self-directed learning is some of the most valuable and rewarding work that we can do. Following our interests and acquiring new skills can be aided by tailored guidance rather than handholding and is excellently demonstrated by the feedback you’ll receive from your tutors here.

Our tailored feedback will set you on the right path to discovery and mastery in your chosen field when tricky areas catch you up. See our long list of student testimonials to find out what you can achieve!
