4 Things College Students Should Know About Remote Education Opportunities

The remote education world has become more prominent than ever before in the wake of the pandemic.

4 Things College Students Should Know About Remote Education Opportunities

Understanding how remote learning works and how you can obtain your college degree remotely can help you to further your educational background. Here are four major things you should know about remote learning opportunities.

They're Truly Accredited

Remote learning has made amazing strives over the last five to ten years. It was once seen as not equivalent to a traditional on-campus college degree. However, the public mindset about online degrees has greatly shifted. There are many accredited degrees that students are earning from all around the globe on their own time. If you've discounted remote educational opportunities due to previous notions that they were not accredited, it's time to shift your thinking.

There Are Many Different Options

Depending on what type of education you want to achieve, there's likely an online college for it. No longer are just select college classes taught remotely. Now, you can achieve an entire degree in almost any field of choice from an online school. And, the best part is that your options for the various colleges have expanded as well. You're not stuck with a shortlist of ten online colleges. Rather, there are hundreds out there to choose from. You can opt for an online university for military or one for law, for example.

Self-Organization Reigns Supreme

When it comes to online learning, it's a whole new environment. After the first couple of days, you'll realize that you don't really even need to get out of your pajamas to attend class. This can seem like a godsend at first. However, this allows for the fostering of disorganization. Those who opt for remote educational opportunities should have or develop skills in self-organization. This way, you can stay on track and focused throughout the year.

They're Just as Difficult as Traditional Classes

One of the biggest lies about online courses is that they're super easy. The real truth is that they are just as difficult as traditional, on-campus classes. When it comes to testing time, most online classes are proctored. This is done via special tracking tools or by attending a proctoring service in your local area.

Remote educational opportunities are growing. No longer are students constrained to physical locations to gain the educational knowledge and skills that they desire to. Hopefully, the above four facts have given you some necessary insight into the online learning environment.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
