Characteristics of a Successful Virtual Learner

  1. Responsibility — With online learning, individuals take the lead of their own learning process.  Online learners must demonstrate a good deal of responsibility to keep up with the demands of an online course. 
  2. Time Management — In order to be successful, online learners must be organized in setting a schedule that allows them to meet their due dates.  This would require a balance of priorities among online courses, face-to-face courses, extra curricular activities, etc.  Virtual Prince William students on average spend about 7-9 hours per week working on their virtual course during the 17 week fall and spring sessions and 4-6 hours per day during the 6 week summer session.
  3. Commitment — Virtual Prince William students have strong motivation and commitment to complete the necessary tasks of an online course.  Our students are committed to adhering to policies/regulations, teacher led schedule, self led schedule, completing assignments on time, and participating in live lessons and group discussions.  Students are committed to Reaching Their Full Potential.
