6 TIPS WHEN TAKING ONLINE COURSES



 

ESTABLISH A WORKSPACE AND ROUTINE

  • SET UP A DEDICATED LEARNING ENVIRONMENT THAT YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE IN AND THAT HAS LIMITED DISTRACTIONS.

  • SET A ROUTINE! TRY AND GET UP AT THE SAME TIME EVERY DAY, SHOWER, EAT BREAKFAST ETC., SO THAT YOUR BODY IS MOTIVATED TO START YOUR DAY.

  • FIND TIME TO TEST IMPORTANT TECHNOLOGY BEFORE YOU’LL NEED TO START USING IT. MAKE SURE TO COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR FACULTY IF SOMETHING ISN’T WORKING CORRECTLY.

COMMUNICATION IS IMPORTANT

  • ALWAYS ASK FOR HELP WHEN NEEDED!

  • FACULTY COMMUNICATION

- BE CLEAR, CONCISE, AND PROFESSIONAL.

- DON’T HESITATE TO REACH OUT TO YOUR FACULTY WITH ANY QUESTIONS

OR CONCERNS.

- BE PREPARED TO USE EMAIL, PHONE, BLACKBOARD AND/OR TEAMS TO

COMMUNICATE.

  • PEER COMMUNICATION

- CONNECTING WITH YOUR PEERS IS IMPORTANT! WHILE WE NEED TO BE

PRACTICING SOCIAL DISTANCING, WE STILL CAN CONNECT VIA

BLACKBOARD, TEAMS, PHONE CALLS, VIDEO CHATS, ETC.

  • PARTICIPATION/ DISCUSSION

- REGULAR PARTICIPATION IS VERY IMPORTANT TO MAKE SURE YOU GET THE

BEST ONLINE EXPERIENCE. BY PARTICIPATING IN

ONLINE DISCUSSIONS, YOU WILL BRING UP DIALOGUE AND QUESTIONS SO

THAT YOU AND YOUR PEERS CAN LEARN FROM EACH OTHER.


LOG ON TO YOUR CLASSES OFTEN

  • IF YOU LET TOO MUCH TIME GO ON BETWEEN LOGGING ON, YOU WILL QUICKLY FIND YOURSELF FALLING BEHIND. BE SURE TO BE CHECKING AND RESPONDING TO EMAILS THROUGHOUT THE DAY.

- ONE OF THE MAJOR STRUGGLES ONLINE STUDENTS TEND TO FACE IS TIME

MANAGEMENT. BEING AN ONLINE STUDENT REQUIRES YOU TO BE A SELF

-MOTIVATED, ORGANIZED, AND AN INDEPENDENT LEARNER. HAVING GOOD

TIME MANAGEMENT IN PLACE IS CRUCIAL.

  • TAKE BREAKS! IT’S OKAY TO TAKE A BREAK. WALK AROUND YOUR APARTMENT OR HOUSE, GET A QUICK WALK OUTSIDE IN, OR FIND AN AT HOME WORKOUT TO GET MOVEMENT IN YOUR DAY!

STAY ORGANIZED

  • ORGANIZE YOUR PLANNER, NOTES & FILES IN A THAT WORKS BEST FOR YOU. THERE IS PLENTY OF TECHNOLOGY OUT THERE TO HELP YOU STAY ORGANIZED!

  • TAKE GOOD NOTES! WHETHER THAT BE FROM THE PROFESSORS’ POWERPOINTS, DISCUSSION BOARDS ETC.
