Although online learning is a convenient way to take courses, it’s not necessarily suited to all students. Some students find it difficult to study independently and need the face-to-face interaction with the instructor and peers that’s found in a traditional classroom. Trent Online students should have excellent reading, writing and analytic skills. In addition to the study skills necessary for post-secondary learning, you’ll need the following skills to be a successful online student:
- working independently
- goal setting and time management
- good at monitoring your own progress
- comfortable asking for help when needed
- good computer skills
- excellent communication skills
