Who is online learning for?


Beginning
How do I know if I am the "right" type for this mode of learning? 

People learn in different ways and at different rates. Some students enjoy listening to lectures, others draw concepts in their notebooks, yet others enjoy working in small groups. Visual learners tend to do best in online courses. Others learn to adapt. Online learning is not restricted by time or location, and as a result, it is a convenient learning environment for adults who have busy lives. However, it may not be the right mode of learning for you.  Find out about your learning preference by taking the following Learning Styles inventory.
