Is Online Learning Right for Me?

Is Online learning for you? Are you ready? Before enrolling in an online course, assess your learning style and technical ability. Optimize your success!

I can spend at least 1 to 2 hours a week for each credit hour in a normal semester on this course.
I want to take this Internet course because it will take less time than a classroom course.

I budget my time well and can prioritize effectively.
I work better when someone tells me what to do and when to do it.

My reading skills are good and I enjoy learning by reading.
I learn better when material is presented by the instructor in a lecture setting.

My writing and typing skills are good enough for effective written communication.
I sometimes have difficulty expressing myself in written form and communicate better face to face.

I learn well independently with some feedback.
I need someone to check my work and give immediate feedback to effectively learn.

I understand the importance of course requirements and due dates and intend to meet these.
I feel there should be exceptions to due dates if a student gets behind in assignments.

I am willing to take responsibility for contacting the instructor when I need help.
I feel uncomfortable contacting an instructor. It should always be the instructor’s responsibility to contact students.

I have consistent and reliable access to the Internet.
I can access the Internet at times, but not on a consistent basis.

I know how to open email, send email, send attachments via email.
I have never used email.

I have basic word processing knowledge and know how to highlight, copy and paste text.
I have keyboarding skills only.
