For many students, the convenience and flexibility of online courses provide a great quality of life. You can work at your own pace and have more control over your own time for school, family, friends, and work.
Things to know about online coursework
- Making connections with classmates and professors is important. Actively engage with others, discuss assignments, and seek networking opportunities.
- Group projects are still a part of online courses, facilitated by collaborative tools and video conferencing options.
- Online classes are not necessarily easier than traditional classes. While they offer flexibility, they require the same amount of effort and dedication as in-person classes.
- Online classes can potentially lead to better performance if you are organized, and you take advantage of the control you have over your learning.
- Technology and IT support are essential for online learning success. Familiarize yourself with the online platform and ensure you have a reliable internet connection.
