Is Distance Education right for me?

Online courses are often the answer for students who are very busy, have difficulty driving to the college, or who live far away. With a different format from the traditional learning environment, students should consider a number of factors to determine their chances for success.

What if I’m not interested in Distance Education?

As technology continues to weave itself into our professional and personal lives, it is more important than ever to be familiar and comfortable using technology. Many college courses — even those that are considered face-to-face — have course requirements that involve accessing a virtual learning environment such as Blackboard/WebCT, or other online resources. These courses are typically referred to as Web-enhanced.

Understanding your level of computer and Internet literacy can help you make wise decisions when it comes to enrollment. It may influence your decision on how many or which types of courses to take in a given semester. The information gained from SmarterMeasure may help you learn how to better manage your time for coursework.
