Challenge Your Online Learning Expectations

This is a helpful article for students who have never taken an online course, especially those who are returning to school several years after graduation. Many students believe that online learning will be drastically different from traditional in-class experiences, that they won’t be able to interact with professors and classmates, or that online courses may not be as valuable to a career or educational endeavors as those in a classroom.

The article “Challenge Your Online Learning Expectations” published recently by Onlinecollegecourses.com provides the realities of online college programs and what students need to know about them. It addresses these areas:

  • Isolation and the Online Environment
  • Online Courses and Your Career
  • What You Can Do to Prepare for Online Courses

Please feel free to read this article online and provide your comments.
