Are You Prepared for Online Learning?

Is online learning for meIs a Web Course for Me?

Like traditional classes, web courses follow the same semester schedule as traditional classes.  Within that time frame, however, students have flexibility each week to access course materials and complete assignments. Web students will find that they put more time into an online course than in a traditional course, depending on computer, reading and writing skills.

To be successful in Web courses, students must be capable of using computers and the Web for fundamental activities such as email and research. All Web-based courses require the student to have access to the Web, be capable of using email, and other Web tools and to utilize the Web for certain class activities.  In addition, students should be self-motivated, able to schedule time effectively, and committed to online learning.

Comments from our students:

“1. I can fit the time required to where it works best for ME.
2. I can spend as much time on any particular point as I need, and not spend that time on
other things in class;
3. If I have questions, the professor usually gets back to me fairly quickly, or I can also
arrange to meet with her if I have more than just a question.”
