Students across the United States are taking up online learning. It is a great way to earn credits
for your college degree. For others, online schools are a perfect opportunity to take up
supplemental courses to add to your résumé. Online learning may seem easy, but they can be an
overwhelming experience for some. Here are a few things nobody told you about online
Not all online courses are flexible in terms of schedule:
A majority of online schools are flexible in terms of schedule. Students can go online anytime
they want to. There is no fixed time for taking tutorials or complete assignments as long as you
submit them by the end of the semester. But some online courses are very specific about logging
in. Students have to log into for a stipulated time every week. They’re also strict about
assignment deadlines. Of course, if a meeting at work happens to coincide with an online test,
you can always hire an online class tutor. All you have to do is to ask can you take my online
test for me.
Just because you can take your course from anywhere in the world, doesn’t mean you
Some of the adverts for online colleges seem to make learning as easy as a fun walk on the
beach. Just because you can take an online course while vacationing, you don’t have to
necessarily do it. Online courses are relatively cost less when compared to in-class courses, but
they’re not cheap. You have to commit your time and effort if you want to be able to benefit
from an online course.
It is not necessarily a good idea to take your online course wearing pajamas:
Again, some people seem to make online learning a frivolous activity. Agreed, you don’t have to
get dressed up, or worry about what to wear. But you need a serious attitude and commitment to
successfully complete an online course. What you wear affects your attitude, even if you are
learning from home. It is good to take things lightly, but resist the temptation to make it a habit.
The lack of face to face interaction can get to you sometimes:
Online colleges make every attempt to make up for the lack of face to face interaction. You can
chat with your instructors or email them for help. But sometimes that isn’t enough. Join an
online students’ forum, or seek help with the student advisor to discuss issues if any - it is up to
you to make an attempt at communicating.
