The benefits of learning online

Posted on August 6, 2020

The majority of VCC Continuing Studies courses and programs scheduled to start in the Fall 2020 term will proceed using online learning and alternative delivery modes. At a time like this, you may want to consider the many benefits that learning online offers:

  • Learn from anywhere, including the comfort and safety of your home, local park or patio, while following public health guidelines.
  • Easily access and interact with your instructors, who are subject matter experts and industry practitioners in their fields.
  • Stay connected with your classmates and instructors and be part of an online learning community using platforms such as Zoom and Moodle.
  • Spend this time learning a new skill, advancing your professional skills, or continuing with your career education.
  • Work at your own pace. This means less intensity and less pressure.
  • Hone essential skills and become more self-motivated, a trait that will make you stand out in the workplace.
  • Take this opportunity to become more tech-savvy. Learn to navigate the course lectures, download materials, interact with others online, and communicate well digitally. These are essential skills in today’s work environment.
