Essential Skills Our Students Gain through Online Learning

online educationOur online health and PE courses offer a different kind of learning experience and teach students essential skills and healthy habits that will last a lifetime. Here is a look at some of the skills our students practice most when they pursue online education with Carone Learning.


Our students learn a type of self-discipline that simply cannot be found in traditional schools. They must be self-motivated in completing their work, as the teacher is not physically present to hold them accountable. They plan and schedule their learning, deciding when, where, and how they are going to complete their coursework and exercise. In addition, they set short- and long-term goals, planning out the smaller steps they will need to take to accomplish those bigger goals. These skills in self-discipline will help students throughout their lives as they pursue higher education, career goals, fitness goals, and more.

Online collaboration skills

Our health and PE courses are all online, which means our students become more familiar with using online and electronic tools to further their success. They use a variety of online tools to communicate with their teachers and other students.  They participate in online discussion boards and take exams online as well. Ultimately, our students complete their coursework prepared to incorporate technology in their educational and professional pursuits.

Communication skills

Students hone communication skills through online learning in a number of ways. First, as just mentioned, students communicate with teachers and fellow students frequently using online collaboration tools. They must learn to express themselves clearly and effectively in their writing. In addition, students must write guided journal entries and reflective papers as part of their coursework.

Flexible learning skills

Even more so than in traditional classrooms, online students encounter a wide variety of teaching tools. Multimedia lessons use pictures, videos, text, and narration to present information. Students can listen to, read, or follow along with text and narration in lessons. As a result, students become better prepared to learn from a variety of teaching styles. This will prove essential in coming years as education incorporates a wider variety of teaching techniques, thanks to advancing technology.

Willingness to take feedback

Our students receive qualitative, individualized feedback on their coursework from dedicated instructors. They must learn how to take the feedback they receive and apply it effectively so that they can progress in their learning. This skill proves valuable in higher education and in a career, where constructive criticism is common.
