Is Online Learning Right for Me?

  • Time I can spend as much as 3 hours a week for each online credit hour I am enrolled in working on this course.
    I want to take this Internet course because it will take less time than a classroom course.
  • Budget I budget my time well and can prioritize effectively.
    I work better when someone tells me what to do and when to do it.
  • Reading 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.
  • Writing My writing and typing skills are good enough for effective written communication.
