A Word of Warning: "Online" is not the same as "Easy"
The most common misconception about online learning is that it is easier than face-to-face learning. In fact, online learning requires more discipline and may be more difficult for some students than face-to-face courses. Successful online students take control of managing their time and study schedules to ensure they meet course requirements on schedule.
Another common misconception is that students can complete their weekly requirements on their days off from work. In discussion-heavy courses, you may be required to log in two to three times throughout the week to participate in an interactive discussion. Some courses may require you to attend a synchronous live chat or do an out-of-home activity such as visiting a site or conducting an interview. Review your syllabus carefully to allocate time in your personal schedule to fully participate.
