Tips for Online Learning Success

​Online courses require you to be disciplined and self-directed. Many students underestimate the amount of time they will need to spend completing online work. You should expect online courses to take the same amount of time as traditional courses and sometimes even more. Online courses create freedom, but also may lead to additional pressures as it is easy to get off track and fall behind. Here are some strategies to help support your transition to becoming an online learner.

    • Sign in and check each individual course daily
    • Pay close attention to announcements, weekly content and deadlines
  • Download Zoom Meetings to your device and explore the software
  • Prepare a workspace with all required materials
    • Set boundaries with friends, family and roommates to establish quiet work times


  • Follow your instructional plans to stay on track
    • Be disciplined in completing classwork each week
  • Schedule your time using your preferred planning tool
    • Planner, calendar, task-list, or apps
  • Schedule specific tasks for specific times
    • Readings, weekly content, assignments and lecture material
