Is online learning right for you?

With the right personal motivation and basic technical requirements, internet courses can be the perfect option for completing your degree. A successful distance learning approach requires:

  • Daily study habits. Build strong time management skills by building the practice of studying into your personal daily schedule.
  • A willingness to seek help. You are not in this alone!  Be willing to reach out to your instructor and fellow classmates for support and guidance.
  • Open SUNY offers an online assessment for people considering taking an online course or studying in a technology-rich environment. The assessment asks a variety of questions and provides a detailed analysis of the results as well as information to consider when taking an online course or a course that requires an unusual amount of technology.
  • Basic computer skills. SUNY offers a tutorial if you need to brush up on basic computer skills needed for an online course.

Technical requirements include:

  • Broadband Internet access
  • Word processing program
  • Email
