Distance learning (DL) courses are not for everyone. They require a unique commitment from students as well as good time management skills, motivation and self-discipline. They are neither easier nor more difficult than on-campus courses, but they do call for a special kind of dedication.
We strongly advise you to take stock of yourself and examine your learning preferences before enrolling in a DL course at Seminole State. If you need help deciding whether DL suits your individual learning style, take our Successful Distance Learning Skills Survey or use one of the other self-assessment tools that are available online.
We also recommend reviewing Seminole State's distance learning course formats to see which type of Web-enhanced learning may work best for you.
