Is Online Learning for Me?

An online course may be GREAT for you if:

  • You like planning your own learning time.
  • You already use computers skillfully and not for just social networking.
  • You believe that hard work will improve your skills and knowledge.

An online course may be TOUGH for you if:

  • You tend to complete your schoolwork at the last minute.
  • You are shy about asking others for help.

Be sure you understand these ideas:

  • Online courses take AT LEAST as much time as face-to-face courses and usually more time.
  • Network problems or electrical problems can happen. Plan your work time with this in mind. You must turn in all your assignments on time.
  • Anyone who has enough motivation and self-direction can achieve success in an "any time, any place" virtual environment.
