“I’ve heard that the online course is way easier than taking the same course on campus. You don’t have to go to class, you just have to hand in assignments and you’re done.”

The Facts

The workload for any particular course is the same regardless of the way it’s delivered. And if you really think about it, there is more reading in online classes because you have to read all of your teacher’s instructions rather than hearing them in class. In an online environment, you need to be more self-disciplined and motivated because you won’t be facing the instructor every session.

The good news is that online classes will give you the flexibility to learn when you are ready to learn and at times that work with your schedule. This can be a real plus for students with busy lives. In an online class you are not limited by “class times,” so you don’t have to worry about conflicts with other classes you want to take, your work schedule, or other time constraints!

Whether you decide to take your classes in a traditional or an online setting is up to you; one option really isn’t easier than the other. It’s all about finding the best fit for your life, your time, and your habits.
