Students who choose to take part in online education come from a variety of different places and backgrounds. What makes online education so appealing is that most courses are made up of a diverse group of students. Though there are no typical students, per se, but many do have commonalities:
Computer Skills - Most students who opt to participate in online education have basic computer skills. These students have regular access to a computer and are familiar with the Internet, email, forums and general software programs.
Study Habits – Possessing good study habits is a trend among successful online education students. Most prefer to schedule their own study hours and complete work on time.
Motivation – Students are motivated to take part in an online education and earn a degree. This motivation drives them to learn new things and do well in their respective courses.
Self-Study – Students excel in online education by studying independently. They are able to retain information from the course by reading course material on their own.
Organized – Those who sign up for an online education tend to be more organized. Most students have more on their plate than just school; many are caregivers, working full- or part-time or are active in other areas of their life. In order to successfully handle everything, online education students must be able to manage all facets of their lives.
