Are e-Learning Courses Right for Me?

Are you considering taking a web course?

Many students sign up for web courses without knowing if it is truly right for them. Taking a web course is very different from taking an on-campus course and requires a different set of skills. The Smarter Measure online assessment will help you determine if web courses are right for you. It takes approximately 20 - 30 minutes to complete. When you are finished, you will see a detailed report about your strengths and weaknesses related to online learning. Your scores on this assessment will not prevent you from being able to take an online course, but should alert you to areas in which you will need to improve.
