Is Online Learning for You?
Learning online can be an exciting and rewarding experience. However, as a student you need to understand that it is different in many respects from traditional face-to-face learning. How you receive and give information, interact with fellow students and instructors, and submit assignments are just a few of the differences.
To determine if online learning is right for you, you may want to assess you needs and abilities. The Professional Development Studies program at the School of Communication and Information, offers a great tool that you can use to determine if online learning is right for you.
