If you decide to further your education online, there are things you going to need to make it as successful as possible. Besides the obvious materials like computer and internet, there are additional items you should be prepared with. For instance, paper. Of course you know you need paper, but you may need two to three times the paper you thought. You will also need plenty of pens and markers for note taking. Finally, you will feel very organized if you have folders, files and binders. This is so you can keep order with a system that’s right for you.
