Many people choose online learning because of the convenience it offers. In fact, 63% of students say the flexibility of online programs works best for their responsibilities, according to a 2019 report by Learning House, Aslanian Market Research, and Wiley Education Services. Additionally, 93% of students say they enroll in an online program to achieve career goals.
One factor to consider when choosing an online program is its learning style or format. Two common online learning styles are cohort learning and self-paced learning. In a cohort, you advance through course material alongside other students. In a self-paced program, you progress through course material at your own pace. The best format for you depends on your availability, goals, and preferences.
