In your initial rush of enthusiasm, there is the danger that you will open the study 30 How to Manage your Distance and Open Learning Course pack, look through it all, and then allow it to lurk, untouched, for a week or so as you summon up the energy to tackle it. You then run the risk of beginning to feel as if it is just too much material to cope with, and that you are beaten by the course before you have even begun.

If you work through some of these possibilities, you will have extended your experience in such a way that a day school is the start of your next learning experience, rather than being an isolated feature of your course. Day schools are always hectic events, and they can be a bit bewildering until you get used to them.
