Yes, you can learn online! Studies indicate that there is no significant difference in the learning that takes place in online education courses and traditional classroom courses (Russell, 1999). Many instructors and students feel that online courses offer an increase in the ability to interact, and students report that they have greater access to course materials and to the instructor during computer-delivered classes (Ward, 1999).
Our Online Courses meet the same criteria as our Traditional Courses...The course objectives and curriculum for online education are the same as for on-campus classes; it is simply the method of delivery which is different. Students who take online education courses generally say they are the same difficulty or more difficult than courses on campus. This is because online education students need to be self-motivated and have good study skills. Most online education students are working toward a specific educational goal.
If you're eligible to enroll in a De Anza College traditional course, you can enroll in an online course...Anyone who is eligible to enroll in the community college may enroll in online education courses (age 18 + or a high school graduate), but students are encouraged to self-select themselves based on their own background and skills.
