If you are reading this, you probably know how to use a computer, tablet or smartphone. This gets you a step closer to earning your degree.
But first, let’s have a look at what are the differences from an online course to a traditional on-campus experience.
For almost one thousand years, attending Universities has been the ultimate goal in education. Now, in the 21st century, you no longer are forced to relocate or chose an inferior alternative to get the best out of abilities. While attending classes on campus gives you the feeling that you are close to your teachers and classmates, the actual reality can differ greatly. While in traditional lectures you are expected to listen, evaluate the information immediately, take notes, and study at home with parts of the information missing, online courses give you the opportunity to look into areas that you don’t understand more closely, gives you time to read the entire studying material and lets you review the information immediately. Also, while obviously every lecturer is different, it can be difficult to receive additional support in a traditional classroom environment due to their tight schedule.
What makes a lot of people insecure about online learning is the fear that they don’t know how to use the program or the fact that they feel isolated. Don’t be! Being part of an online programme means that you are never alone with any challenges. The UNICAF online platform for example is designed to be used by anybody with even the most basic computer knowledge. Nevertheless, should you have any difficulties with the program, our staff is available to assist you and make sure that you can start your studies.
