Tips for being Successful in this Online Environment 

During this temporary period of time when taking an online or virtual class students will be expected to use online technologies to access course material, complete assignments, and collaborate and communicate with their instructor and peers. 

  • Read and make notes of the revised syllabus, schedule, and other documents to understand course expectations, due dates, and technologies to be used.
  • Dedicate regularly scheduled time 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.
  • Communicate with your instructor if you any have questions.
