Online Learning

Is Online Learning for Me?

Only you can decide if online learning is right for you. Convenience is a key reason students enroll in online learning courses. At times, jobs, schedules, location or family commitments can make it difficult to take a course on-campus. While convenience is clearly a benefit in online learning courses, it is only one area that needs to be considered before registering for a online course. To evaluate factors that will influence your success consider the following:

  • Learning Style Preferences
  • Motivation/Time Management
  • Computer and Internet Skills
  • Access to Equipment and Computer 

Each online learning class is unique and may use a combination of technologies and services, such as Internet access, College Access Television broadcasts and Testing Services.
