E-learning, online education, distance learning, learning through the web, are the names that are used to define distance training using a computer with an Internet connection.

Both demand and supply of such courses have soared in recent years.

And no wonder! Besides being a less expensive option of learning, are also preferred for its flexibility and the absence of time travel, which allows students to link the two with his personal life.

The e-learning also offers undeniable advantages in the training of managers, technicians and workers in different disciplines, institutions and organizations for public and private sectors.

However, not everything is rosy when choosing a Online executive MBA. There are several important factors to consider before enrolling in a course of e-learning:

1. Be aware of the power of an independent study.

Due to its non-contact method, e-learning requires that the person has enough self-discipline to take the course to a successful conclusion.

The good news is that a person can accomplish much more disciplined study independently in a classroom context. The student knows that self-study does focus on a subject with passion and can reach extraordinary levels of performance in both the amount of knowledge acquired and its quality.

2. Accessibility to the course tutor or mentor:

A course of e-learning must offer some form of contact with a tutor. It is important that this support is not cold and distant, as many people leave the e-learning for lack of motivation and support.

The work of supervision, encouragement and guidance by the tutor is critical and has to go beyond an occasional email. Before enrolling in a course of e-learning, check that your contact with the tutor is expedited and open, either in the form of an interactive forum or personal emails.

3. Teaching Methodology

Unfortunately, many online courses use methodologies that are based almost exclusively on the passive reading of documents followed by self-assessment tests to verify the retention of what has been read.

This mode is very low performance. It is known that the mere reading of a document does not produce deep learning and high retention. In addition, an extensive text, no matter how good your content is not capable of maintaining student interest alone and unattractive.

Before enrolling in a course of e-learning, verify that the method of delivery of the information is cutting edge. With the technology available today can do video conferences with excellent quality, in which you can use a Power Point or demonstrate direct from the screen of the exhibitor. This methodology is very attractive, since, besides containing audio and visual components, allows immediate interaction with the tutor.

In this way the correspondence MBA programs increasingly resemble a classroom course, retaining the advantages of flexibility and low cost are typical of e-learning.
