Tips for Online Learning

Online Learning is an excellent way to earn college credit! 

Students in online classes are not bound by specific times and location, which allows them the freedom to work when it is convenient for their schedule.


Success in an online class depends on how well a student adapts to self-directed study. As an independent learner, it is important to remember that your time management skills will be tested. The Advising & Learning Center professional tutors manage a free course in Canvas to assist students with online courses.

Tips for Success

  • Be certain your computer has the basic requirements for accessing online courses.
  • Communicate with your instructor and other students in your class via email and the discussion board. This requires the ability to communicate well in writing, read from a computer screen, and have confidence in your skills.
  • Log-in every day to read messages from your classmates and instructors. Online classes require a minimum of 6-10 hours per week during the Fall and Spring semesters, more during Summer terms. Time management is an essential element in online learning!
  • Make sure you have a private place where you can study. 
  • Print your course syllabus as soon as you begin the course.

Remember there are others just like you in class who can be a great support and resource for your online experience.
