    Hello Tony:

    Thank you for providing a very helpful and informative student guide.

    I’ve also developed an article for prospective students:
    Can Anyone Succeed as an Online Student?

    I believe that self-discipline is a skill that online students must have in order to be successful. Would you agree?

    I thinkg one concern about studying online is that the student has all the excuses NOT to do his homework. It can be truly discouraging to study online because there are so many distractions like Facebooking, texting, and sleeping. One should have great discipline to succeed.

    I happened to find this article when googled for “Online Studying” and think it is very useful, many thanks to Mr. Tony Bates.
    Reason why I’m thinking about taking online courses is because I’m an oilfield engineer working on rigs and basically have no time to sit in classroom and was looking at University of British Columbia because of it’s location. I live in Calgary, Alberta and the idea of choosing UBC is that if I need, for any reason, visit them it will be not very hard to do that.
    Am I on right way, looking for studying? Is that advantage over successful graduation, to be physically close to institution when taking online courses? Besides Mr. Tony Bates, can anybody say anything about UBC’s online courses: quality, prices and the level of difficulty?

    Many thanks to all in advance.

      Hi, Elnur

      Whether you need to be reasonably close to an institution will depend on whether the program is fully online (in which case you can study it from anywhere) or whether there are some components, such as the exam or a weekend session to do practical work, that needs your presence near or at the institution. The main criterion though should be the quality of the institution and also its experience in online learning.

      You can find out more about UBC’s online program here: Normally you will need to be admitted to a degree program to take these courses and I don’t think they have an online program focused specifically on oil engineerin, although they do have courses on physics, environmental issues in engineering, etc. The quality of the programs of course will be high as UBC is in the top 30 universities ranked worldwide, and has more than 20 years experience in designing and delivering online learning.

      However a better option for you may be SAIT in Calgary. SAIT offers a Bachelor of Applied Technology Engineering, and some of these courses are available as distance education courses towrds a certificate or diploma. Go to: SAIT is an excellent post-secondary education institution, and its qualifications are fully accerdited by the Albert Ministry of Advanced Education.

      I hope that helps

    Flexible online learning puts the needs of the students first; therefore course content is shaped according to
    the other commitments of the students. Art helps relieve stress and divert minds from useless thoughts.
    With distance learning programs, though, the teacher and students may not be
    together at the same time, meaning that an instructor
    cannot give a student immediate feedback and must communicate differently.

  9. […] from the above mentioned, what is even good about studying online is that the person is given the chance to interact even more. This is the reason why education is […]

    I would want know the law implication of an online student who starts a course on a grant of a quarter of the total semester fee. Stops attendance after 4 weeks due to reasons of Health.
    i have a brother arrested for not completing tuition fees for the first semester with an AMERICAN ONLINE UNISERSITY.
