Online learning can be more convenient, but it is NOT easier! Taking courses online means taking greater personal responsibility for your learning. With the freedom and flexibility of online courses comes responsibility. It takes real commitment and discipline to keep on track. This page outlines the qualities and skills you need to be a successful online learner.

Want to see if you are ready for online learning? Take our Online Learning Readiness Survey!

If you’re not where you think you should be based on this survey, do no fret! The remainder of this module will help you with strategies to help you succeed. And, remember, your online program coordinator and other support resources at UIS are available to support you.
