Points for you to consider as a potential Online Learning student:
- Some students prefer the greater independence of online learning; others find it uncomfortable.
- Online learning courses give you greater flexibility in your schedule, but they also require more self-discipline.
- Online Courses are not the same as distance learning courses.
- Most online courses do require you to interact with your classmates and the professor on a regular basis.
- Some people learn best by personally interacting with other students, but online courses do not afford as much opportunity for this type of interaction.
- Online learning courses require you to work mostly from written directions, without face-to-face explanations by the instructor.
- Online courses require at least as much time as you would put in when attending classes and completing assignments for on-campus courses.
- Online courses use technology for teaching and communication. You will need to be comfortable with such computer techniques as uploading and downloading your assignments.
- Text-based materials are the primary source of directions and information in many online learning courses. Some online courses require occasional trips to campus for orientation and on-campus exams.
