Hi Ian! This is a great question and I remember pondering this when I was an undergrad. The best advice that I can give you is to determine the difficultly of the course you're taking paired with your own strengths and weakness. I remember the first time I took an online course in Undergrad. Ian, I will tell you that I didn't do well. It was an easy class for me, so I would either forget to log on or I had very low participation in the class. Needless to say, I had to drop that course. However, I was able to learn from that experience and the next time I decided to take online courses during my MBA, I prepared by mapping out my classes each semester. By reviewing the things I stated before, I found myself staying away from math class because of my learning style. I like to hear, see, and do things. (I know, these are not the technical terms. haha) So when I planned to take my first master-level accounting class, I only reviewed options for in-person class and for a class like employment law, I was able to take online. Best of luck to you!
