What Is Online Learning Mean In College
By Student, Major, & LCC Freshman
Hello! As an undergrad student, I will admit that there are times when I wonder how on earth it is possible for me to graduate on time. I work full time, attend a full time course load, and have a position that puts me, and some of my friends, very close to my limit of earning credit per semester. Additionally, there are classmates that do not excel academically but choose to go to school instead of getting a job (the kind of career they didn’t care about or couldn’t see themselves having).
Then there is me: the last person you would think of to be having a hard time obtaining grades, but sometimes I think about how hard it is for me and reflect on how college works, and how it could just as easily work for those who don’t plan on ending up in jobs in the near future. There is a movement to get rid of college credit for “gig economy” jobs and traditional tuition paying jobs. However, there are no plans in place right now to remove online classes from the equation. Additionally, many institutions across the U.S. are still offering courses that are associated with majors. In response to this, it is very important to know what online learning, just like physical education, is really about.
Before looking at it from a business perspective, from a student’s perspective, I encourage anyone who is considering online learning to look at what is expected of them. Essentially, success in online education means performance under what are sometimes very high expectations. The online students who are succeeding tend to find that the online courses do not interfere with their day-to-day lives, at least in the sense that there is not a mandatory class or time commitment required for coursework. All the same, the students who are failing online courses feel like they are failing the class as a whole.
A. What a Misconception is There?
There are many people out there who believe that if you are going to take an online course, you should take a class or two in that field before jumping right in. This is a misperception as online courses are not a substitute for having a degree program. Often, students learn something from an online course, and they also go to classes in order to continue to develop their skills or further their education.
B. Are You Thinking Online and You Only Got a Major
Digital communication is so great that you can easily do many things online. In fact, I have built a better way to research housing on the Internet by working with a college classmate. We have pooled our resources to create a tool that can help you save money on housing. We have not only learned how to code but we have also become great problem solvers and problem-finders.
C. Is Online Learning Something to Just Waste Your Time On?
You would not want to stop working just because your professor says you have to quit after class. In the real world, the fastest way to get a college degree is to work and to do it full time. There will always be opportunities to get more work experience as well.
D. How Does Online Learning Work?
If you think of these two classes as being the same, you would be wrong. By participating in most online courses, you are not only developing skills in those subjects, but you are building the skills you need to launch your own business or make a lot of money. This includes everyday skills like reading, writing, and math. What we learn online is also applicable to college in a similar way that a class in a real college might be. Learning online is a learning process, not something that is forced upon you.
