Online Learning Readiness

Below you will find a number of Online Learning Readiness Self-Assessments.  Online learning is a complex subject and no single assessment covers every important area, so you are encouraged to explore them all.  Your answers to the questions provided in these assessments will help you determine what you need to do to succeed at online learning. Post-survey feedback will also provide you with information on what you can expect from an online course:

Online Learning Readiness Questionnaire – University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

Learning Skills Self-Assessment – Metropolitan State University of Denver.
