Distance Learning Style Evaluation
Are you considering distance learning, a system in which your college courses will be delivered over the Internet? It is a wonderful option, that provides an amazing level of flexibility. If you are not sure, however, if it is right for you, Globe University would like to provide information so you can make the best decision.
A member of our online college admissions staff will be happy to provide an informal, free distance-learning style evaluation. The representative will talk with you about your goals and your strengths, and describe the benefits and challenges of online college courses. You will have an opportunity to ask any questions and explore some of the related tools. You don't have to come in to campus for this unless you want to; the meeting can be held over the phone and Internet. To schedule a meeting, contact admissions and ask for an online representative. Meanwhile, consider the points below:
How committed are you to finishing what you start?
One feature shared by successful distance learners is a high level of commitment to earning their college degrees. And you can count on our staff and faculty to support you in every way possible.
Are you a good time manager?
Time management is as important in college as it is in the workplace. An online college program may require even more time than a traditional one. You will need to be self-motivated, schedule regular times to work on your classe and avoid procrastination. One of the greatest benefits will be efficiency—you can take extra time for challenging material, or fly through easy lessons quickly.
Comfort with technology
If you are enrolling in online courses, you should be comfortable with using email and learning new technology. You will have 7-day-a-week access to live tech support. You will need reliable Internet access and a computer.
Your learning style
If you like to learn and communicate by reading and writing, distance learning should work well for you. If you need to hear an instructor explain material before you understand or remember it, you may do better in a traditional course. The online college environment does offer great opportunities for interaction with your classmates and instructors. In fact, many friendships start in the virtual classroom. If, however, it is important to you to spend face-to-face time with classmates and instructors, you may enjoy the traditional classroom more.
