Are online courses right for you?


Online courses often require more time than conventional face-to-face courses.  In addition to self-motivation, good time management skills, and self-discipline, they also require a high comfort level with computers and technology.  We recommend you take the quiz below before you register to see if online learning is right for you.

·       I have a computer and high speed internet connection at home.

·       I have read the “Recommended hardware and software” specifications (on HCC's website) needed for taking online courses and my computer meets the requirements. I have downloaded the Mozilla Firefox browser and will use it for my online courses.

·       I am prepared to download or purchase the tools and software required for my courses. I have checked the HCC bookstore listing (on-campus or on-line) for the required textbooks and materials.

·       I have Microsoft Office or a similar suite of programs which includes a word processor. (Please note: Some courses may require specific programs or applications.)

·       I know how to save, locate, and organize files on my computer.

·       I am comfortable with the tasks of attaching, uploading, and downloading electronic files.

·       I know how to check my computer or browser settings for playing various types of media content should my course require video and audio play.

·       I am prepared to spend three to four hours online for every 1-credit hour for each online course. (For example, a 3-credit hour course will require a minimum of 9-12 hours per week.)

·       I am able to learn and understand material (textbooks, articles, websites) by reading or viewing it on my own.

·       I am self-motivated and can set schedules for myself.

·       I am willing to ask an instructor for help when I have trouble understanding a topic and need clarification.

·       If you said YES to all items, then online courses might be a good option for you and your educational plan. If you determine you would be more successful in a course that meets in a fully face-to-face environment, please speak with your advisor about registering for those courses only.

·       Students with a documented disability are strongly encouraged to contact the disability counselor at 828.627.4504 prior to registering for any online courses.
