What is an Online Course?
Online courses are like traditional courses but are accessed via the web by an unlimited number of students. No commuting is necessary, course materials are included, and costs typically range from free to relatively cheap.
Online courses consist of a series of short video lessons. Pre-planned and pre-recorded, online courses are usually better organized than traditional courses and typically taught by experts with field experience. Moreover, online courses are largely asynchronous, so students can learn when, where, and how they want to.
