Welcome to the world of online learning. Taking an online course requires different learning and studying skills than those you need for a face to face course. Before you enroll in an online course, take some time to think about yourself as a learner and see whether the way you prefer to study and learn would help you be a successful online learner. Your answers to these questions can help you decide whether or not to take an online course. You should also talk to your advisor before you decide.
