Online courses let students earn credit (original and make-up) as their schedule permits. In addition, online learning develops the skills necessary to be successful in the 21st century, including: self-directed learning, time management, problem-solving, information and communication technology literacy, creativity and global awareness. Classes are available 24/7, so students may complete work at any time of day that is convenient for them.
The benefit of online learning is that it is flexible enough to work on your schedule. There is no set school-day. With that said, you will need to check Genius each day, Monday – Friday, to ensure you receive important messages from your teachers. Additionally, you will need to pace yourself appropriately to ensure that you complete all course units and assignments within the given session. If you want to work in the afternoons you can! If you want to work a couple longer days and have a longer weekend you can!
