If you communicate, read, and find information online in your daily life, then taking your education from a classroom to a computer can feel like a pretty natural progression.
Our world is made up of high-speed internet, mobile devices like smart phones, and communication via emails and texts. You may also already be in the habit of reading articles, looking up recipes, or searching for the best local gym to join in the online world already.
Working and studying from the comfort of your own home or favorite coffee shop, on your own schedule, is a huge benefit. It unchains you from the strict, rigid class schedules and locations at a traditional university.
If you're asking "Is an online university right for me?" read on.
Here are some ideas for how to be a thriving digital student, and why online learning might be right for you…
You don't have to be extremely tech-savvy to succeed in online courses, but if you’re not comfortable with a computer, or it’s been a while since you've worked on one, you may want to practice basic computer and internet skills before signing up for a class.
Some basic programs and skills you'll want to know how to use include:
