Is Online Right for You?
Online Learning is Different
Some students want to gain skills to help them in their current career. Some are looking at a career shift. There are those who are unsatisfied with the limitations of typical discipline-specific programs. Others consider themselves lifelong learners. And then there are those who are drawn to our program because they love the fact that it is a totally online program.
Online classes are ideal for many students because students can
- Take class from anywhere
- Work according to their own schedule
- Engage in learning through a variety of media including text, video, discussion board, video conferences, and more
- Have frequent and individualized interaction with their instructors
- Meet and collaborate with classmates across the country
- Develop skills incidentally through the use of new technology
- Access course materials any time of the day and any day of the week
- Enjoy a familiar learning environment
Successful online students are students who
- Schedule time to focus on their course work and stick to that schedule
- Get and stay organized
- Are self-motivated and can work independently
- Feel comfortable expressing themselves through a variety of media including text and video
- Ask questions of their instructors
- Engage in conversations with their classmates
- Plan and stay on track with their program of study
We support our online students by providing
- Pre-advising consultations

- A comprehensive online orientation program that's available throughout a student's entire career
- Regular contact from our faculty and staff
- Access to other online resources offered by UNO, such as e-resources from the UNO Criss Library and online writing consultations through the UNO Writing Center.
