Making the Right Choice

Is online right for me?

It has been shown that the most successful online students tend to share the following characteristics:

  • Self-motivation
  • Good organization and time-management skills
  • Familiar with computers and the Internet
  • Resourceful and actively seek answers and solutions to questions and problems

While online courses can be more flexible, you will need self-discipline to be successful. Consider each of the following questions:

  • Are you good at estimating and following through with how much time you need to accomplish daily activities?
  • Will online courses fit your availability because you have a lot going on in your personal life?
  • Do you feel comfortable working on a computer and have reliable access to the internet?
  • Do you prefer working alone on projects?
  • Do you enjoy reading and writing, and are you in the habit of doing both most days?
