Distance Learning

Could you be a Distance Learner?

Distance learners tend to be busy people who take advantage of flexible course schedules and delivery methods to fit college classes into their hectic lives. Many are employed full-time, many are parents and some are homebound due to special needs.

To find out if Distance Learning is right for you, ask yourself the following questions:

Am I self-motivated?
Can I work without frequent supervision?
Do I have the patience to understand if the course does not go smoothly?
Do I have enough time to take a distance learning course (as some classes require online time)?
Am I computer literate or do I have the proper equipment (i.e. computer and modem)
Am I a good time-manager?
If you answered "Yes" to all of these, then you are ready for a Distance Learning course. If you answered "No" to some, then please speak to an Erie Community College academic adviser.
