Is online learning right for my students?

Penn students come to the university with a variety of experiences and opinions. First-time online students may have reservations about venturing into this new environment. For some students, the online option offers exceptional flexibility and convenience. But just as teaching online requires new and different skills, online learning may not be right for every student. Resources are available to help students determine if online learning is a good choice for them. The Online Learning website also offers a video demonstration of the platform to introduce students to this environment. Additional screencasts and tutorials exist to prepare students for their online classes. In instances where students want to earn credit over the summer term to fulfill course requirements, Online Learning is a terrific choice no matter where students spend the summer. The majority of students enrolled in SAS online courses are Penn undergraduates. Student feedback has been positive with high satisfaction rates.
