To be successful with the non-synchronized virtual paradigm I have to have several qualities as an individual. I have to be responsible, know how to work independently, be organized, and be self-disciplined. If I do not have these qualities I will not be able to succeed in obtaining my degree through distance education using the virtual mode. They are many elements that I have to be able to work with. I need to know: how to use the computer; how to communicate with the professor online; how to communicate with my classmates online; how to participate in forums; how to write e-mails; follow a class calendar; know what the tasks are; know what the requirements are for the tasks; and know when to submit my tasks before or on their due dates. Although I believe this is a good venue for learning, it will not be a venue for me if I do not have the previously mentioned qualities. This is not for everyone. The positive elements of using this virtual paradigm are that I am able to work in a self-paced mode. I can work at any time of the day or night. I do not have to be in the rush traffic scenario. I do not have to change clothing. I do not have to listen to lectures if the virtual paradigm is not a synchronized class. I do not have to attend to regularly scheduled classes. I would have to do all of the above in a traditional educational setting. Being able to work from home, gives me the opportunity to do my readings and assignments at my leisure. .
