Distance learning is a form of education in which you don't need to be physically present. You study at home whenever it suits you.
· The Open University is a Dutch institution which offers university-level distance learning for certain subjects. You can decide when and where you study, at your own pace. The Open University has a study centre at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). You can find all information on their website.
· For more information on the various forms of education, training, retraining and further education, you can visit the website wordwatjewil.be.
· Children with a long-term illness can follow lessons via internet thanks to Bednet.
This association brings the class and playground to a computer, meaning that children with an illness can stay in touch with the teacher and their friends, while following lessons online.
· The Enseignement à Distance service of the French Community (website only available in French) provides courses for adults and children who are unable to attend compulsory education. You can prepare for the exams of the examination board or for social reintegration, or you can simply go there to broaden your knowledge.
· Children with long-term illnesses are often absent from school for long periods. The Take Off organisation (website only available in French) ensures that these children can still participate in lessons via the internet. That way, children with illnesses can stay in contact with the teacher and their friends, and they can follow lessons online.
