Tips For Online Classes

1. Time Management
 Time Management Clock

 

Set aside specific days and times to log in to your course and work on assignments.

 Figure out how much of your classwork time will be devoted to the various parts of the course workload.

  

 

2. Communication

 

WRITTEN COMMUNICATION PROOF READ + EDIT BE CLEAR ASK QUESTIONS FOLLOW UP
Much of the communication in an online course is written. An ability to read for information is important. Proof read and edit your written communications for their tone. Give yourself time to use the best wording to get your point across with minimal opportunity for the meaning to be misconstrued by the reader. Be very clear in your emails and messages to professors and classmates so they accurately understand your meaning. State your questions and responses concisely so there is no opportunity for miscommunication. Ask questions sooner than later. Don't wait until the last minute to get help or clarification from your instructor. Students and instructors are not necessarily in the course at the same time. Follow up with instructors if you don't hear back in a day or two.



3. Engagement/ Involvement

Online courses require more initiative from students to get involved with learning the material than traditional courses. Be ready to take responsibility for your learning. Get started communicating with your group soon. Exchange contact info including time zones in case your group wants to schedule live chat sessions or conference calls. Be active in class discussions! Answer ques-tions posted by the instructor and classmates. Post your own questions about the content being discussed.
