To be successful in distance education courses, an online student should be self-motivated and be able to work well independently.
Students who take online courses must possess good computer and Internet skills to be successful. Students should have daily access to a computer (preferably at home) that meets the computer needs requirement. Skills specific to individual courses may also be required; for example, proficiency with a word processing software may be needed for an online English course.
The following computer skills are needed prior to taking online courses through WGTC. Students are responsible for assessing their own skill levels. If a student does not possess these skills, he or she may want to consider taking on-campus classes. Online instructors will not be teaching these skills.
