Tips for Being a Successful Online Learner

Whether you are taking classes online, face-to-face or a mix of both accessing course materials, assignments, and technologies are an important piece of your learning. Staying connected, collaborating, and communicating with peers and instructor, builds community.

  • Read and make notes of the syllabus, schedule, and other documents to understand course expectations, due dates, and technologies to be used.
  • Dedicate regularly scheduled time and routines for each of your courses. 
  • Test your technology. If you need to attend virtual office hours or submit work online, make sure you know how it works in advance.
  • Participate regularly in course assignments, discussions, and groups as outlined by your instructor.
