Taking online courses is very different from learning in a physical classroom. An online course requires a special kind of student. Everyone can benefit from the flexibility of online classes. However, it takes hard work, dedication and an active learner to get the most out of the online learning experience.
Ask yourself these questions:
- Are convenience and flexibility essential to me?
- Am I interested in developing friendships with faculty and students online?
- Do I get more out of online courses than a campus-based lecture?
- Can I meet deadlines and keep track of my assignments?
- Am I a self-starter?
If you answered yes to these questions, you are a likely candidate for success with online classes. Nevertheless, it’s important to know that online career courses require self-discipline and a commitment to succeed.
Taking online courses is convenient and flexible. They permit you to study as your schedule allows. But it is your responsibility to make your education a priority and keep yourself on task. Remember the ABCs for online career course success:
Ask questions. The more you interact, the more you learn.
Be prepared. Keep up with your class assignments and be ready to join in every discussion.
Commit time each week. Mark out on your schedule when you are going to study (offline and online) and stick to your schedule.
