We all learn in different ways. Some people prefer to have the direct interaction a classroom provides. Others like to learn at their own pace from home. Some people like a mix of both kinds of learning.
Some people like the comfort of knowing exactly what they are supposed to learn, checking-off accomplishments and contents as they go, while others are more autodidactic. That is, they prefer self education and seek out the information they want and need to know to meet learning objectives.
Some people are visual learners, while others prefer to read a descriptive text that paints a picture in their head.
Not everyone is meant to do their learning online…and that’s OK! Truman State University is still primarily an on-ground institution, and online classes are chiefly an alternative to support those who benefit from that mode of learning.
Our Learning Technologies Team has set-up a series of self-diagnostic pages that can help you decide whether or not online learning is right for you. For more information, visit them here.
