How Online Learning Works
Online learning (also known as e-learning) is a method of delivering educational content by using the Internet instead of face-to-face in a physical classroom. Many students prefer online classes for a variety of reasons:
- Students have the flexibility of accessing course content and completing assignments at any time, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
- With family or work obligations, students today have the convenience of accomplishing academic and career goals by completing coursework with a personalized schedule.
- OCC online students save money by paying an affordable tuition and by not having to commute to an OCC campus to take the courses they need to complete a degree program.
- The courses offered online offer the same quality education, competencies, and credits as face-to-face classes and are even taught by the same instructors.
