Should I take an online course?

Synchronous online courses provide you with a set structure and similar pacing to an in-class course experience, but at the same time, allow for more flexibility to complete the assigned course work at your own pace. Some learners find that the expectation to attend a regular in-class session is rather inconvenient and often can conflict with personal commitments or work schedules. Learners tend to enjoy the virtual social interactions present in an online course as it still allows the exchange of ideas, knowledge and experiences with the added benefit of a more flexible schedule and to be able to connect remotely regardless of location.
