Learning online is quite different from the correspondence
model of "independent study" . You will be using a computer
and the internet to connect with your virtual classroom on a regular
basis, logging on to your course website on a regular basis with
fellow learners and your instructor, participating in asynchronous
on-line discussion, and perhaps working in collaboration with others
on group assignments or problem sets.
The following questions will help you to determine
whether or not online learning is right for you at this time.
For further information about the skills required
to be a successful learner online, look at the Resources
for Learning page of this website. You will find links to a
variety of websites specific to learning online.
