Is online learning right for you?

By Kate Schellenberg

Have you ever considered taking an online course but have yet to take the dive? Are you wondering what online courses are like?

Take this quiz to find out if online courses are a good fit for you:

Question 1:

Where would you most prefer to sit while listening to a lecture?

  1. On your couch
  2. In your bed
  3. In front of your fridge (close to snacks)
  4. In a hard, wooden chair

If you answered A, B or C, online learning might be for you!

Our bodies are temples. Do you want your temple located in a crowded, fluorescent-lit classroom? Or would you prefer your temple to be lying in bed, surrounded by stuffed animals? Learning online means you choose where you learn.

Question 2:

What would you most like to wear to class?

  1. A ballgown and a tiara
  2. The Katy Perry shark costume
  3. A Snuggie
  4. Khakis

If you answered A, B or C, online learning might be for you!

When you take courses online, you can study in clothes that make sense to you. This means you’ll never have to waste your time deciding whether to dress like Lady Diana or Lady Gaga — you can do both!

Question 3:

Do you like sitting beside random strangers?

  1. No
  2. Definitely not
  3. Did they bring snacks? Actually, that’s probably still a no
  4. Yes

If you answered A, B or C, learning online might be for you!

Are you tired of deciding between “axe body spray” guy or “pyramid scheme” gal for your seatmate? Never be stuck choosing the lesser of two evils again — when you learn online, the only other people you will interact with are the ones you choose (or even no one at all, though we recommend you set up in-person study groups with your fellow online classmates).

Question 4:

 How important is it for you to have a flexible schedule?

  1. Sort of Important — I like to take my cat out for brunch
  2. Very Important — When the Cat Cafe has a special, I need to be ready to go at any moment
  3. Extremely important — Sometimes I need to take all the neighbourhood cats out for brunch
  4. Not important — I do not care about taking my cats out for brunch

If you answered A, B or C, online learning might be for you! (If you answered D, how DARE you.)

Taking your classes online means you have the freedom to plan your learning around your life and not the other way around. Make Catalie Portman your number one priority!
