Five personality traits of online students

by frank-stuart

There are numerous misconceptions around studying online. Some people say that it’s extremely difficult to do, while others swear that it’s too easy to be any good. Where things start to get nasty is when the non-believers hark-up and proclaim that online study isn’t ‘real’ studying. Well I’m here to tell you that this just isn’t true.

Students who choose to study online complete the same subjects and the same hours of work experience as their on-campus counterparts, with one exception – the computer is their main learning platform. So how do I know this? Well having studied both online and on-campus, I can tell you from experience that there isn’t really much of a difference between the two. Honestly, it doesn’t matter whether you watch the slideshows sitting in a classroom or lounging in your bedroom, it is what you study that is important – not how.

Do you have what it takes to study online?

It takes a special kind of person to study online. Not only do you need great time management skills, but an ability to set your own work is essential (a special kind of personal responsibility comes when you choose to study online). To help narrow down a few more traits that online students share, I have created this short list (I wonder how many traits you have?):

1. You’re a time management whiz
2. You want to work your studies in and around your life (not the other way around)
3. Setting and achieving goals is your ninja power
4. You love working independently
5. You can detach from Facebook for long enough to complete an assignment (seriously this is a skill in itself)
