The benefit of an online or hybrid education course is its flexibility. The fact that this course is offered at a distance makes it possible for highly-motivated and well-organized students to learn without the obligation of attending class on campus once, twice or three times a week. Having said that, online and hybrid courses require students be independent learners. "With great freedom comes great responsibility."

To succeed, you must:

  • Demonstrate dedication, self-motivation, and the ability to work independently
  • Demonstrate concern for your performance throughout the course, not just during the last few weeks of the semester.
  • Schedule several times each week which you will devote to this course, in the same way you attend a traditional class at the same time each week.

To find out if online learning is a good fit for your learning style, please take a few minutes to complete the student skills and technical skills quizzes below. These short quizzes will provide you with valuable feedback on whether online learning is right for you!
