Preparing For The Course

Where You Learn:
A comfortable and efficient study space is important in online learning. Your computer and the area immediately surrounding it is your physical classroom, along with the virtual classroom provided by us. If you are studying at home, it is important to have a good chair and desk to work at, along with a properly functioning monitor and good lighting.
