Are You Ready For Online Learning?

Learning online requires a positive mindset and the fortitude to see a task through to completion. We believe in you, and we know you have what it takes to learn online. But with so many demands on your time, we want to ensure that you fully understand what is involved in an online program. Learning online isn’t easier, but it can certainly be a superior choice that allows you to complete your higher learning educational goals.

Understand what it means to be an online learner. Flexibility is key in online learning. You can learn around your work and family schedules, in the time you have during your lunch break and after work. Maybe for you, it’s early in the morning and then after everyone else has gone to bed. Whatever your schedule, it is possible to take online classes. Synchronous, asynchronous, technology-enhanced, simulcast and live lecture online courses may all be available in the landscape of higher education. There can be some challenges, too. Online learning can take more time than traditional learning (example: a one hour class with a lecture and discussion can turn into more time online after you read the lecture and write your discussion points out for the instructor’s review). If you require quite a bit of direction from the professor, online learning may be more difficult than on-campus, or even a blended learning environment. We offer many methods to learn, choose the one that fits you.

Characteristics that make online learners successful include excellent written communication skills, ability to read and comprehend subject matter quickly and efficiently, strong math skills, the ability to work independently without supervision, and the choice to be self-aware enough to see your future path while taking the initiative to persevere through a challenge. You will need the ability to schedule the time to study and to follow your designated plan even when something arises that might sidetrack you. Don’t worry if some of these skills seem overwhelming. We offer bridge programs, mentorships, and other tools that can make learning accessible to everyone.

Ability to make positive connections with similar individuals while learning online. It is much easier to succeed when you have a positive support system to help you through your online learning program. You will experience some challenges, and every one of them will be worth it when you hold your degree in your hand. Having positive role models and a support system who can provide you with the all that you need to reach your end goal is integral to your success. You’ve got this!

Know your motivation. The reasons why you’ve decided to attend school online will affect your ability to learn. Know and understand your motivation for choosing to go back to school and learn online. For many, learning online gives them the opportunity to continue working while they pursue more knowledge so that they can earn more income. Keep your motivation at the forefront so that you can refer back to it when learning seems tiring or grinding. You will invest of yourself in an online program. Your time is one of the greatest investments you’ll make. The effort you put into your online learning will directly correlate to how well you perform in your courses. You will also be making a financial commitment to yourself. Investing money in your education will give you larger returns in the end. We know you can do it, and deep down so do you!
