The Successful Online Learner

 


Success depends on many factors, not all of which are technology related.

The successful online learner:

  • Is self-motivated and is often expected to branch out and find other resources.
  • Is self-disciplined; not a procrastinator; will need to budget time.
  • Will question what he/she does not understand; depending on the structure of the class, the learner may feel isolated because there will be no face-to-face interaction with fellow classmates, so the learner must be comfortable with "conversations" with the teacher and with the class through open discussion threads.
  • Has good reading skills; all means of communication depend on good reading skills.
  • Has good writing skills; is able to express ideas clearly to prevent misunderstanding or confusion. (There is no voice inflection or body language which help in understanding the spoken word.)
  • Should set aside time for online study; this is part of being self-disciplined.
