Is an Online Course Right for You?

Online learning courses can be fun, exciting, challenging, convenient, and enriching. However, online learning courses are not for everyone. Taking an online course requires the same commitment of time, study, and effort as a face-to-face course plus a high degree of self-motivation, self-discipline, and independence. To determine if you will feel comfortable in this learning environment, please take about five minutes to complete this easy, fun quiz.
I have (or am willing to obtain) access to a computer and an Internet connection at home.
I feel that high quality learning can take place without having face-to-face interaction.
The part of education I enjoy the most is the discovery of new information and ideas.
I can dedicate 4 to 6 hours a week (anytime during the day or night) to participate in the learning process.
I am not a self-motivated or self-disciplined person.
Prioritizing tasks -- and then accomplishing them before their deadlines -- is one of my strong points. I am not a procrastinator.
I am comfortable communicating my ideas in writing.
I feel comfortable reading/viewing material from various sources (textbooks, articles, Websites) and integrating it on my own.
Listening to discussions is not helpful to me.
I believe in the value of introducing critical thinking into the learning process.
I am comfortable working independently and do not feel the need for constant attention and direction from the instructor.
I think increased learning will take place through sharing work, life, and educational experiences as part of the learning process.
I am comfortable with sending email, browsing websites, and using new technologies.
I have a high need to take a distance learning course now -- to earn a degree or certificate, for a promotion, or for a new job.
My lifestyle (family, work, or personal schedule) makes it difficult for you to attend courses during the day.
I find it difficult to ask an instructor for help when I have trouble understanding a topic and need clarification.
