Take a minute to view the Flash video at http://www.harperdoit.net/dlo/DLOwebsite/losadvice/story.htm to hear about one student's experiences with online learning.
As an online student you'll need to allocate some time to work on this course.
Visit http://www.harperdoit.net/dlo/DLOwebsite/tmcalc.htm and determine how many hours each week you have available.
How did you do? Do you have at least nine hours available for studying? You'll need to participate in the Discussion Questions (DQs) three times per week. It might be a good idea to think about how you can schedule your time. Post a message in the discussion board that describes how you plan to allocate your study time for this course.
