Are Online Courses Right for Me?
Online courses require discipline and commitment. Before enrolling in an online course, ask yourself:
Do you work well on your own or do you prefer to learn with other students?
Are you the kind of person who sticks to schedules?
Do you have good reading comprehension skills?
Do you have good written communication skills?
Are you self-motivated? Will you complete the work without anyone there to push you?
