Example Directions: Is Online Learning for Me?
Online learning provides students with an opportunity to take courses online that they otherwise would not be able to complete because of scheduling conflicts with family and work obligations. While you don’t have to be a computer expert to take an online course, you should be comfortable using web browser and word processing software. Read the articles about the online learning environment and advice from other successful online students. These resources will help you decide if online learning is a perfect match for you and your learning style. Create a reply (post) and share a tip from the articles about studying or time management when taking an online course. Respond to other students in the discussion.
