Could you share some Tips for Success that one should follow while studying Online?
Below are some of the Tips for Success while pursuing an Online Course:
Stay in contact with your teacher and your classmates through the discussion board and other activities. Participation often contributes to your final grade.
Know your deadlines:
Look for table of deadlines when you first login to your course site. If you feel you can’t meet a deadline, let your teacher know as soon as possible, don’t wait until the last minute as it is often harder to accommodate your request then.
You have access to the course site 24×7, but remember your teacher and classmates are not sitting at the other end waiting for your email or discussion posting. Give them time to reply. Usually, you can expect a response within 48 hours or sooner.
Manage your time appropriately. As a guideline, you should give yourself about 2-3 hours per week to work through the course content and another 3-4 hours per week to complete assignments and participate in discussions and online activities.
It is very easy to skim information on the web, but it is important that you read through the material in your course site to ensure a positive learning experience.
