Tips for Taking Online Classes

Remember that online learning is not easy. Your online teacher will demand at least the same quality of work as they would receive from you in a face-to-face classroom. A similar number of hours per week will need to be committed for an online course as there would be in a face-to-face course. (Most courses include 3 hours of in class work and at least 2 hours of homework for each hour in class for a total of 9 hours each week. An online course requires 9-15 hours of time each week to be successful). Good organization and time management skills are very important for online learning, as you will have to work independently much of the time.
