An online course is a web-based learning experience in which students log on and engage in traditional class activities such as reading, discussion and testing. The online format allows for completion of coursework on each student’s schedule, but engagement and collaboration are still fostered in the online classroom.
What is an online course in IT? Information technology, or IT for short, is the catchall phrase that refers to the systems, hardware, software and network applications that work to manage and communicate information used by companies and individuals. You will study these aspects of IT with the goal of understanding how information is handled, what common problems occur throughout this process and what methods are commonly used to mitigate complications. Students should emerge with a solid understanding of IT’s essential principles as well as the problem-solving methods that should be applied.
This online course can benefit students by acquainting them with the foundation of the information technology sector, but more importantly, by imparting the analytical skills necessary to find solutions to problems. The latter of these skills are sure to be an asset in nearly any position or situation.
