Is online learning right for me?
When considering distance learning programs, ask yourself a few questions.
Do you have time in your schedule for a course commitment?
Are you comfortable working with a computer, using Internet, word processing and file sharing?
Success in online courses does require you to have excellent time management skills and be self-motivated. Good reading ability, skill in navigating the Internet and sending and receiving e-mail, and a basic understanding of computers and file management are necessary. It is also important to be able to ask questions and seek out information if you don’t understand something.
Students may enroll in numerous online courses offered by the Michigan Community College Virtual Learning Collaborative, a cooperative effort of member colleges across the state who offer courses and degrees to students via distance learning. All of JC’s online courses are fully accredited, with no distinction in course objectives between online and traditional classroom formats.
