Skills for 21st Century Learners

I read an article yesterday about online learning.  One university is requiring students to take 12 credits of online courses as part of their undergraduate degree program.  As I thought about this, I realized it makes a lot of sense.  Students working on bachelor degrees today will need to have excellent life-long learning skills in order to progress through their professional careers.  Much of their professional development will be delivered through online instruction.  What better time to start learning how to succeed at online courses than now, while they are in college pursuing their undergraduate degrees!
