From the Academic Dean: Is on-line learning for me?

On-line learning is a great option for working adults who want a high quality program with flexibility.  If you cannot attend courses regularly or in a traditional time or format, on-line courses could be for you.  Students who might be new to on-line learning may believe that taking an on-line class is less time consuming than a traditional on-ground course.  Most of my students would tell you the opposite is true.  However, many students prefer on-line learning because of the flexibility in time and coursework they experience. 

In order to take advantage of the flexibility of an on-line course, you as a student must be good at your own time management.  You must also be disciplined to work many hours on-line outside of class times that might be set for the course.  You will experience both collaborative and individualized learning activities designed to promote learning in your course.  As an adult learner, you have many demands on your time and life.  On-line learning (and possibly some hybrid learning) may be for you.  If you are dedicated and committed to furthering your education, and can make time for learning (outside your normal working and “life’ hours), then a program at Northeastern Seattle is for you.  Northeastern Seattle’s offers both on-line only and hybrid courses depending on the specific program of study.  Please check out the academic degrees offered at the Seattle Graduate Campus or contact Dr. Walmsley at a.walmsley@neu.edu for further information.
