eLearning courses offer students a flexible alternative to on-campus classes. You participate in the course on your own schedule and at a location most convenient for you. The majority of distance learning courses are not self-paced and you will have due dates and deadlines to meet as you would in a traditional class.
Being successful in a eLearning course requires self-discipline. It is necessary for students to accept a high level of independent responsibility for their learning. In addition, distance learning courses require a minimum level of computer competency, and are reading and writing intensive. To find out if eLearning courses are right for you, take a moment to do a self-assessment.
Some courses offered via eLearning may or may not be transferable and/or fulfill a specific degree requirement. Students are encouraged to discuss course selections with an advisor in order to meet intended goals.
