Released: 11/09/2006

LSU Alexandria will offer a Free Forum to the community entitled “Is Online Learning for Me?”

The Free Forum will be presented from 6-7 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 16 in the Welden “Bo” Nipper Building, located on Acorn Drive on the LSUA campus.

Teresa Seymour, director of educational technology at LSUA, will provide the presentation.

Seymour will discuss the tools needed to be successful in completing an online course, the effective communication tactics suggested for online learning, and the hardware needed to take an online course. The Free Forum also includes a quiz to determine if a person is a good candidate for learning online.

The program is presented free of charge by LSU Alexandria and its Free Forum sponsor, Red River Bank.

Although the program is free, pre-registration is required to help plan for handouts and refreshments. To register, call Continuing Education at 473-6495 or go to, click on Free Forum and select “Is Online Learning for Me?”
