Online Learning Is Not
Is not correspondence learning Online courses actually provide a high degree of personal contact and offer more opportunities for reflection, in-depth discussion, and interaction.
Is not us just pushing content at you It’s more than just lectures, readings and submitting assignments. The teacher and students can talk directly and in group settings, contributing as much as they want.
Is not easier than in person course work Course content is usually the same as in-person. It may be more demanding because you have to stay motivated to keep on top of your course work independently.
Is not a cheap alternative for in-person learning Delivery of high quality online learning is no easy task, it requires a great deal of care and preparation from our institution, the professor and the student.
