Online Learning Isn't So Bad After All

Online Learning Isn't So Bad After All

Are you hesitant about taking an online class? Are you worried that it may cost too much or takes over your life? Well think again!


Taking an online class is not bad at all instead I think it is great opportunity. Taking an online college class is not as bad as some people may think. It is an amazing way to gain college credit and to have something for you to do when you have nothing else to do.

I decided to take an online American History class over Christmas Break. It seemed like the right time for me to get my History core for my school out of the way when I had some extra time on my hands. I was home for Christmas/Winter Break for a little over a month and I did not have enough room in schedule to take it second semester of my freshman year. I also knew that after the holidays were over I’d have nothing else to do since some of my friends that I have from Church had school. I am glad that I took an online class. I gained my necessary credits for my History core requirement and it was a good learning experience for me. I was able to learn about many different events in History ranging from WWI and WWII all the way to present day.

I highly encourage you to take an online class. It is time consuming, but it is perfect for a college student who needs to get a credit in their schedule or has some extra time on their hands. I loved the fact that I could complete my work in the comfort of my own home. I would complete assignments in my pajamas and work at a pace that I was comfortable with. I went into the course expecting to have a heavy course load and it was. There was a lot of reading, but I became a better ready and learned skills that would be useful in my future classes. The beauty about taking an online class is that you can work on the assignment pretty much whenever is a good time for YOU. I highly recommend taking an online class.
