I’m already working fifth year as a teacher and a student councelor in a high school for adult students. In our school we are organizing a lot of distance education. I'm also taking part to a project where six other collegues of mine are developing methods for student conselin in distance. Our first step are webpeges - serving all Finnish adults, who are planning to study or already studying in adult highschool.
I’ve also myself studied several web-courses. It’s not so nice only meet in the Internet but my situation (work, family and 200 kilometres to the Univercity of Helsinki) distance learning is better than nothing.
