Distance Learning at Amberton
Bringing the Classroom to You
Our distance-learning courses are identical to classroom courses in terms of learning outcomes and expectations. Both full-time and part-time professors who teach lecture courses also teach e-Courses. Admission to the University, costs, and expectations of performance are the same for all students regardless of the student's location or course selection.
Getting Started with Distance Learning
You will need to have Internet access and an e-mail address. Basic computer literacy is essential, and includes: general knowledge in Internet browser settings and configurations, e-mail and file attachments, uploading and downloading files, the use of a word-processing package, such as Microsoft Word, and the ability to browse and research online.Connect with an advisor about distance learning.
Is Distance-Learning Right for Me?
The student who is most successful in an online environment is the person who is self-motivated, organized, and has developed good writing and research skills. Before considering enrolling in online courses, you should answer the following basic questions:
The professors at Amberton were knowledgeable, accessible, and always open to listen to you when you needed their wise counsel.Carolyn Moorman
- Do I need convenience and an adjustable schedule?
- Do I like to work independently?
- Am I comfortable asking for clarification of a task or project?
- Am I comfortable working primarily with a text-based medium?
- Do I have the necessary computer skills to produce collegiate level documents?
- Do I have experience in online searching and a working knowledge of my computer’s browser?
If you answered “yes” to these questions, then online courses may be the perfect solution to completing your education.
If you hesitated a bit on some of these questions, distance-learning may still be “right” for you, but you may need to work harder and more deliberately at staying in touch with your professor and understanding exactly what each course requires.
