Is Online For Me?

With Western Iowa Tech's online classes, students can choose from hundreds of course offerings. You can earn college credits or even some entire degrees in some cases. All you need is a computer and internet access... just login and follow the instructions. Tech support is available 24/7. Students can ask the instructor questions, take tests, access grades and take part in threaded discussions... all online, anywhere.

How do I know if Online Learning is for Me?

Online courses are a convenient way to pursue your educational goals; however, they are NOT self-paced and have regular deadlines for homework and tests, just as you would in the classroom. You have flexibility in working your homework and "class time" into your busy schedule, but assignments, papers, quizzes, exams and such will need to be done on the class's schedule so no one falls behind. If you aren't sure whether online learning is for you, try taking a demo course.

You will potentially have fellow students from all over the country, and they will often have different perspectives on things. Show respect in the online classroom and treat others how you would want to be treated.

Pay close attention to the type of class you sign up for because there are several varieties.
