If you are comfortable on a computer, then an online course will be a good option for you. You’ll need some basic computer skills, such as the ability to work with a Word or Excel document, but deep technical expertise isn’t necessary. Your personal student success coach will be able to guide you through the online classroom environment and help with any questions or issues you have.
Successful online students are self-disciplined and approach assignments with the same focus they would in a classroom.
