Learning Outcomes by Unit
The "K" sections of University 1010 are designed to help students achieve a level of academic competence that will enable them to work successfully in college-level courses. The on-line courses are designed to meet this goal. However, on-line courses are not suited for all types of learners. Students that are successful with distance learning tend to be self motivating, prefer independence, are able to follow written directions, and have the time to study for the class.
