Returning Back to School Brenda Shipman English Compostion I Betty Nazarian April 16, 2012 Overcoming obstacles, challenges being told at every chance for advancement, need more education is my reason for returning to school. The first obstacle is had to overcome was being in an online classroom environment. My first posting was the scariest thing I have ever done as well as getting use to not having an instructor right in front of me or classmates. Having a classroom where I am the only one here is very different but doing work at my time is so convenient. Managing my time for school was another challenge I overcame, it always seemed like I was not going to have time to get everything done.
Ways to overcome this would be to have an organizer/planner so I can purchase and get the needed materials for the classes I am taking this semester. If I am having difficulties I should get assistance from the professor or ask students in the classroom for help. College may seem like the hardest obstacle I have come across but with hard work and commitment I will be able to achieve success in any field I dream
There are many reasons why this arrangement works for some students. For instance, a student may have other responsibilities that make it difficult to attend physically. Students have all day to get things done. Giving the best you can at everything is important due to the testing and grade reoccurrence when in college. As mentioned before, flexibility is one of the most important highlights of an online education.
Ability to reteach material to students until they understand it. Hold a Bachelors in early childhood education and create a warm and loving atmosphere for students. Learning online is different than learning in other context because when it comes to online learning it is flexible and convenient you can attend classes (collaborate sessions) from the your own home whiles being comfortable and complete your essays or assignments at any part of the day. Online studies are great for students who have family commitments or busy work schedules but still want to achieve a degree of some sort. However there are a few cons to studying education online including limited direct contact with fellow students and teachers also there is fewer opportunities for extracurricular activities or to join campus
The fee’s for room and board along with gas no longer apply to online classes. Online schooling and traditional education both help acquire a degree just in two separate ways of doing so. If one is considering attending college they have the option of attending online or traditional education. Online courses seem to work better for students that work a full time job or have a hectic life schedule. The same accredited degree is offered online just like it would be available for traditional classrooms.
Since the way I approach my research it helps cover a lot of ground in limited amount of time giving me time to focus on other issues in my life like work and my kids. I am also able to do multiple assignments in a short amount of time so that I can finish them on time, hand them in and receive a good grade on the assignment. The way COMM 150 has affected the way I think about academic integrity and giving the proper credit to the ideas of others is that those people are helping me by publishing their work, so they deserve the credit for doing the hard labor that I did not have to do. What I mean by that is if I put in the time and hard work to put together something and someone else used my work and did not acknowledge me as being a help source I would get frustrated and upset. So I have no problem giving credit to where credit is due.
February 15, 2013 Exploratory Essay Composition I While I believe on ground learning is more structured and beneficial for some, online learning takes a lot of discipline and motivation to complete, because it can be very strict and distance and no set schedule. It can be very challenging, due to the fact that online learning requires students to participate a certain amount of hours or certain times per week. Online can be beneficial for working class people, or stay at home parents, because it allows the flexibility to attend at your own pace. My perception is that it can present many pitfalls and failures because it requires more discipline and commitment. For instance there may times when circumstances arise where you cannot participate
Sometime, they even begin the final project without the instructor’s authorization and proper guidance forgetting that without the instructions they might give the wrong information. An online student also expects services at all time of the night or day. They need to understand that waiting is part if teaching and learning for the internet speed is not the same as the course speed. Internet teaching is all about following instructions and doing your work on time. Traditional students must write a thesis and take notes before writing a research
Returning to School Sylvia Todd English 121 Stephanie Derisi November 18, 2012 To accomplish great things , we must dream as well as act. –Anatole France Here I am 7 years later and I am writing a paper for one of my college classes. Little did I know it would take me so long to finish what I started back then. I am going to share with you why returning to school is important to me, the benefits of getting a college degree and what motivates me to make this choice and continue to stick with it. Like everyone who decides to return to school I would like a better job, better pay and of course a college degree.
I tried college right after high school but dropped out because I felt like I was wasting time and money. I told myself that when I decided what to major in I would go back and get my degree.

At this point in my life I would love to move into the corporate level but need the college degree to do so.
