When it comes to online learning and learning within a traditional classroom there are many differences. One major difference is the learning face to face which is done in a traditional classroom and online learning being all through email, messages, or chat.

I pervious attended the University of Phoenix and many of their requirements are the same as Bethel University. While I was with Phoenix I was required to respond to two discussion questions, eight responses to fellow students, an individual assignment, and one team assignment. With that being said I would like to think that I have the discipline to complete the assignment work for each course.

I think it is because I am use to it were as a television or music is something different every so many minutes. I have wondered if I have truly retained the information that I have learned and now that I am in the law enforcement field I have proven to myself that I do remember what I have read and tested on. I have actually used the information more that once since my beginning of my career journey in January. The one area that I know that I need to improve in is giving my course work a break. If I am working on an area that doesn 't come clear to me I will read, research, and question everything until I come to a conclusion when sometimes I need to walk away and give myself a break.
