    What is it like to take an online course?

    Online courses offer many of the same benefits that on-campus courses can offer. You can participate in group discussions, chat one-on-one with your instructors, set up study groups or interact in real time through video, text, or sharing. And, you can do it all from the comfort of your home and on your schedule.
