An IWUOnline administration representative recently described essential traits that a new-to-online learning student should possess as including “discipline, determination and endurance, though not necessarily in that order.”
Such traits allow students to balance themselves, embracing freedom distance learning provides while avoiding falling behind. The discipline ensures projects are completed; determination lets adults juggle their professional responsibilities with their academic ones while remaining focused on their goals and not giving up; and endurance provides ability to successfully meet demanding coursework, even when life doesn’t yield to added pressure.
Even students who possess all discipline, determination, and endurance in world could be at risk of failing if they had to face their challenges alone. Students do not learn in an isolated bubble; they learn by surrounding themselves with others, they learn from their peers, their professors, from like-minded individuals and from their polar opposites.
In short, students learn best when they are part of a community, and that’s exactly what IWUOnline offers ─ a tightly knit community that overcomes geographical distances to forge spiritual and academic bonds.
