Learn about the many advantages of online learning.

In addition to convenience and flexibility, online learning offers a number of remarkable benefits. An online learning environment is ideal for students who are self-motivated, comfortable working independently, and can effectively balance competing priorities and time. While online learning has a lot of positive attributes, it comes with a lot of responsibilities and may not be the best fit for every student. It is important to ask yourself if online learning is right for you.

Time Investment

For a 16-week class, a general guideline is that a student would spend three hours per week for every credit hour. So, if you are taking a three-hour course you should expect to dedicate a minimum of nine hours of study per week to the course. It is important to be mindful that this is a general guideline, so you may find yourself needing to dedicate more time to coursework. Also, please be aware that if you are taking a five-week or eight-week class this hourly guideline would increase.
