Is Online Learning For You?

What is online learning?  What's different about online courses?

The only difference between online courses and other college-credit classes is the way you learn.  Traditional courses require you to attend lectures or seminars at the campus.  In an online course, you learn to interact with your teacher and fellow students via computer. 

You still must understand the concepts, read a textbook, turn in assignments, and take exams; however, most students agree that online courses are convenient because they give you more schedule flexibility.
