Online learning offers several advantages. There is minimal life interruption, meaning you can work around schedules, kids, jobs, etc. and do things on YOUR time. There is almost no travel time or expense. Online learning is convenient, flexible and accessible. Our instructors teach on campus and online so you know you are getting the same quality of instruction whether you are online or on campus.
Diversity is another advantage. Our students are diverse in age, gender and often ethnicity. This adds varying perspectives and enhances the learning environment. Online learners are also more involved in the classroom ” as they are not afraid to speak up ” in the online environment.
Online learning is the process of gaining knowledge and skills outside of a physical classroom-in a virtual environment. Online classes at MTC are led by a qualified MTC faculty member, and class sizes are limited. Classes are conducted using technology such as computer based learning, teleconference, virtual classrooms and more! This method of learning is used by educational institutions across the globe to enable people of all ages and backgrounds to have easy access to knowledge and teachers.
Learning online works for many people, but it is not for everyone.
