Once upon a time, a notebook, sharp pencil, and perhaps a calculator were all that a student needed to complete coursework. Today’s classrooms run at bandwidth speed, and the smarter your computer the more likely you are to ace the next project. It’s no surprise, then, that the software you use while learning matters a great deal. Perhaps just as important is having up-to-date technology that will easily translate from the classroom to the real world after graduation.
Is it true that online courses are EASY? Is it true that online courses are HARD? Is it true that I can work whenever I want? Is it true that t's just me and the computer? (or that I can "hide" and remain anonymous in an online class?)
