Debunking Myths about Online Learning


In July 2013, Digital Learning Now! (DLN) released a white paper which enumerates several myths related to online learning, and explains what’s true and what’s not.

Myths include:

  • “Online learning is only for motivated and well-supported, techsavvy students.
  • “Online learners work in isolation.”
  • “Online learners have little social interaction.”
  • “Online learning is easier.”
  • “Students don’t receive as much attention because online learning class sizes are larger.”
  • “Students spend all of their time on a computer.”
