Your eLearning Course: What to expect
9. Is eLearning right for me?
What are the benefits?
Many students prefer online learning. They enjoy taking greater control of their studies and working at their own pace to meet deadlines rather than attending scheduled classes.
Some report that online discussions are more interesting than classroom discussions, because the participants reflect more carefully on what they write and because discussions are less likely to be dominated by one or two individuals. For others, online classes are the perfect way to combine higher education with work and family responsibilities. In addition to having to make fewer trips to campus, you will find that you have an opportunity for increased flexibility and convenience in course scheduling.
