Don't sign up if you are a procrastinator. You must be well-disciplined for online courses. "Go to class" at a regular interval and have a regular place to study to get in the mindset. I'm sure there will be deadlines and such.

I took one of my acct course online and waited until the last minute to submit my work to make the deadline. I pulled an all nighter - literally - to get 12 weeks worth of work in one night. I got a B on the exam but it could have easily been an A.

Hi.
Yes there are some disadvantages of distance learning which can hinder your studying online. There is the issue of the technology used like the computers can prove expensive. Internet connection might not be available to everyone. Also some people are not comfortable using computers and the software for distance learning might be complicated to understand. Also you don’t get immediate feedback from your teacher and you don’t get much opportunity to work on oral communication skills and many more. Find out more distance learning disadvantages to help you decide in the end if it’s good for you.

All the Best!!!
