About Online Learning

Online learning is a convenient alternative to taking courses in a traditional classroom setting. It allows the student to learn almost anywhere and anytime according to his or her individual schedule. It also offers the unique opportunity to take a class through the Internet without having to come on campus on a regular basis. To achieve the best results in a distance learning course, students must be able to work independently with little or no supervision. The distance learning courses are no different from the regular courses taught on campus in the amount of time it takes to do the lessons and assignments. Students have ample opportunities to interact with the instructor and other students through electronic means. Students must be well organized and have a basic understanding of computer functions to be successful in a distance learning course.
