Are you ready for Distance Learning?

Photo of a Distance Learning student working in his room.The content of an online class will be the same as if you were in a classroom, but the way the material is presented and the way you learn it can be quite different. Keep reading to see if distance learning or an online class is right for you.

Attributes and Attitudes of the Online Learner
Because of the freedom you have in distance learning, you must be organized, not letting tasks and time get away from you. Good time management skills are needed to assure success. You, the student, are responsible for your learning. Convenience and flexibility do not equal easy, and distance learning is not for everyone.

  • A distance learner must be organized, self-motivated, and disciplined.
  • A distance learner should realize that he or she will spend as much or more time working on course work as those taking the course in the traditional setting.

Responsibilities of the Online Student

  • Contact your instructor prior to the beginning of the semester.
  • Get all required materials, including any needed software.
  • Always notify your instructor when you've finished an assignment, and follow instructions for submitting assignments.
  • If you have a question or problem, contact the instructor.
  • Have a plan if you encounter a technical problem, such as computer failure, ISP problems, etc.
  • Remember, your instructor(s) has many students. Be sure to follow their instructions for communication. Always give your name and the class in written communication. For example: John Smith, Engl1301-10DL.
