Distance Education - Self Evaluation

Will online learning fit your circumstances, lifestyle, and educational needs? Here are some basic questions to ask yourself in deciding if an online program is right for you.

1.  Do you have (or are you willing to obtain) access to a computer and phone line at home?      

2.  Do you feel that high quality learning can take place without having face to face interaction?      
3.  Can you dedicate 4 to 6 hours a week (anytime during the day or night) to participate in the learning process?      
4.  Are you a self-motivated and self-disciplined person?      
5.  When it comes to schoolwork and deadlines, are you a procrastinator?      
6.  Are you comfortable communicating in writing?      
7.  Do you enjoy reading?      
8.  Are class discussions helpful to you?      
9.  Do you subscribe to the value of introducing critical thinking into the learning process?      
10.  Do you think increased learning will take place through sharing your work, life, and educational experiences as part of the learning process?      
11.  Are you comfortable with email, computers, and new technologies?      
12.  Does your lifestyle (family, work, or personal schedule) make it difficult for you to attend courses during the day?
