Studying online can be as effective or destructive as it can be when studying in a physical school. However, studying online can even be more destructive to some people than to others. If you are considering taking an online bachelors degree, here are some of the things that will be expected of you.
First is self-motivation and personal discipline. With online learning, there are no classes to attend, no lecturers to pressure you around or even parents to persuade you. You will have nobody but yourself to decide whether you are taking the classes for your online bachelors degree or not.
You will also need to have good organizational skills as in many cases you will be required to plan your time out to cater for your work, personal life and study. On the same note, it is important to have good computer skills, as the majority of the learning will take place through the internet. Other personal traits that will ensure that you successfully complete your online bachelors degree may include a personal learning style and habits, good research skills and time management.
