Achievement and Self-Esteem Beliefs – Students require a high degree of self-motivation, and [they] must perceive that their success depends on their own contributions, rather than those of the course or teacher.
Responsibility/Risk Taking – Students have to take the initiative [to] complete tasks, even when all the information may not be given and the correct way to proceed may not be clear.
Technology Skills and Access – Students in on-line courses not only must be skilled at using on-line resources but also should have better-than-average access to them.
Organization and Self-Regulation – Even more than other academic activities, on-line environments seem to require students to have excellent organization and study skills.

Only take this course if you are self-motivated enough to do it. It’s not bad at all if you manage your time wisely and set goals for yourself to finish it on time. I wrote down all of the due dates in my assignment notebook so I could see when they were coming up to remind myself or else I knew that I would probably forget.
