Am I ready for an online class? Will you be successful in this course?

If this is your first online course, I would highly recommend that you take the Readiness for Education At a Distance Indicator (READI) to assess your readiness, your goals, and your learning preferences.  

You can find the READI at  http://goml.readi.info/

On that page you will find several User Names and Passwords.  Select and use the one that best fits your major area of study.  When the READI opens, you will notice a navigation bar on the left side. The items listed in the bar are the areas that you will be measured on by the indicator.  At the end, a report will be displayed which you can use to help you prepare to be successful as a distance-learning student.
