Overview

Develop the skills you need to make online learning a success

The internet is playing a bigger role in our work and social lives. But have you considered studying online?

Studying at a campus university isn’t for everyone. If you have caring responsibilities, want to re-skill to change careers or wish to earn while you learn, then online study may be for you.

In this online course, you will find out what online learning is and what it can offer you. You will discover the skills required for online study; evaluate your own skills; examine how students form online communities; and learn how to benefit from flexible study arrangements and dedicated tutors.
