I can't see the registration form, please help!

Should I take an online class?
Your answers to the following questions will help you to decide
If you answered "yes" to most of these questions, chances are you are a good candidate for success in an online course. A few "no" answers to these questions may identify areas that need to be strengthened or addressed, but you may still decide that online learning is a good choice for you.
If you answered "no" to many of these questions, this may indicate that your chances for success may be greater in a traditional course setting at this time.
How do online courses work?
I don’t have a computer or WiFi access. Can I enroll?
