Distance learning can produce a unique type of stress and anxiety. Students can feel isolated at home without the camaraderie of classmates or personal encouragement from teachers. Flashpoints can occur when booking assessments or panicking during revision. Stress can also be triggered by practical difficulties linked to problems as mundane as slow internet connections, or the lack of a quiet space to study. However, experts agree that whatever the challenges may be, stress when distance learning can be avoided and overcome with the right mental attitude.
