Are Online Classes Right for You?

Online classes are not for everyone. An online student is: self-motivated, responsible, independent, and organized. It is important that you have a personal/mobile computer at home and that you check your class and email daily.

Before registering for online classes, please take the SmarterMeasure Assessment to determine if online classes are suited to you. This is a web-based tool which assesses a learner's likelihood for succeeding in an online classroom environment. SmarterMeasure indicates the degree to which an individual student possesses attributes, skills and knowledge that contribute to success in online learning.

The seven components of SmarterMeasure are:
Individual Attributes - motivation, procrastination, willingness to ask for help, etc.
Life Factors
Learning styles
Technical Competency
Technical Knowledge
