CD-ROM courses let you study when and where you like. These courses require computer access, but an Internet connection is not needed. Courses provided on CD-ROMs are especially well-suited for independent learners and for students who don’t have consistent access to the Web. Assignments can be submitted to instructors by fax, email, or overnight or standard mail as long as they arrive within each module’s deadline. You may work with your instructor to establish an alternative schedule if needed.
Online courses provide an experience that is most like traditional education. Your virtual classroom will include other students, group activities, and plenty of student-faculty interaction as well. The weekly assignments will help you stay focused on the course work while you benefit from interaction with your peers.
