Why Learn Online?

There are many benefits to taking college courses online. Here are some of the best reasons to take classes online:

  • Students may attend class whenever it's convenient for them - from a high school campus, from home, the library, or anywhere they have access to a PC and the Internet. 
  • Adds additional flexibility for students juggling a demanding personal schedule and may help students learn to manage their time and responsibilities. 
  • Direct and timely feedback available through open communication outside of the traditional classroom.
  • Online instruction may provide a more comfortable environment which encourages students to participate in discussions and projects. Many students who are normally intimidated by a traditional classroom become more responsive in an online class.
  • Improves students technological abilities, which will help in future online courses, on-campus courses, and in the workplace. 
  • New technology, such as pod casts, RSS feeds, blogs, Instant Messaging, wikis, etc., are incorporated into online courses, which helps students stay engaged.
  • Provides a secure environment for high school students to participate in college opportunities.
  • Allows high school students to get a head start on their college courses at a reduced cost.
  • Assists students in completing prerequisite courses that may be required for acceptance to college programs.
