Being an online student

Being an on-line student is a lot harder than I had anticipated.  I thought that it would be a lot easier than being in a classroom setting.  Now I see that is not so.  I do enjoy the flexibility of being able to work at home.  I like going to school in my pajamas.  LOL.  I believe that the interaction on the discussion board and in seminar with classmates helps you with ne ideas and getting feedback on your own ideas.  It is convenient to be able to email a classmate if you need to discuss something on a particular unit.  I am just scared sometimes that I may not always understand something in an assignment and I don't have that classroom one on one time to have it explained before attempting to do the assignment.  At 47 years of age, I never thought that I would be able to accomplish going to college.  I have really proven to myself that I can do what I set my mind to.  I look forward to talking to everyone on the blog.

  1. Pam,

    I know how you are feeling because I too find that being an online student is harder than I had first thought it would be but I have found that if you just stay focused and don't procrastinate that it isn't so bad. I want to say that it doesn't matter what age you may be what you said is correct if you put your mind to it you can accomplish anything. Good luck and if you ever find yourself not understanding something don't be afraid to ask me or your other classmates or the instructor because we are all here to help each other get through this journey together.
