Debunking the Myths -

   Online Learning

 

 

 

Myth: Online Learning isn't a credible source of education.

Fact: All AICE and associated Colleges Online Learning courses and programs give you the same accreditation and certification that on-campus courses and programs do.

Online Learning allows you to:

  • Schedule your course homework and study time around your personal and work lifestyle
  • Access course information, assignments and class discussions at all hours of the day/night
  • Receive quality education from instructors in the comfort of your own home

 

Myth: I have to live a certain distance away from Aspire Institute of Community Education in order to enrol in the Online Learning programs and courses.

Fact: Not true! Many of our students are in the work force, have families or other time commitments and are looking to further education in order to advance or start new careers. Online Learning gives these students the ability to engage in content and curriculum in the comforts of their own home or office, and around their own schedule.

 

Myth: I have to buy a new computer to enrol in a Online Learning course.

Fact: There’s no need to rush out and buy the newest PC or Macbook. Although the online delivery courses requires the use of a computer and functioning Internet sources, there are only basic requirements for it. All of the technical needs are outlined here.

 

Myth: Online Learning doesn’t allow me to interact with my professors. I won’t be able to ask my questions or comment on course material.

Fact: Students have access to discussion boards within their online course where they can post questions and comments for the instructor. A Online Learning student also has the chance to pose questions to other students in the course through these discussion boards. Aspire Institute of Community Education has a policy that commits all instructors to responding to questions or concerns within 24 - 48 hours on weekdays.

For print-based courses, students can either email with their instructor or write letters and await responses via United Kingdom Post.

 

Myth: Full-time Online Learning seems like a big time commitment. Being enroled in a diploma program through Online Learning doesn’t really make sense if I’m going to be doing course work all day, every day.

Fact: A day in the life of a full-time online student at Aspire Institute of Community Education is much different from that of a full-time, on-campus student. Although it is essentially the same course load, the perk of completing your studies in the comfort of your own home and around your personal schedule is very convenient for many people.

Myth: Full-time online programs are not the same commitment that full-time on-campus programs are.

Fact: Although full-time online programs allow you to personalize your study and homework schedule, it is essentially the same workload. Full-time online benefits students who like to work independently and in an off-campus setting.
