Online + Remote Learning Support
Success comes from setting strong SMART Goals for yourself and committing to obtaining them. The ability to recognize the need to improve your self-management skills and study habits, and your willingness to to work on these skills will determine your success in online learning and beyond.
Meeting the needs of an online course requires you to stretch yourself to use different types of media, such as audio, video, and chat to learn. While all of these forms of media may not be your learning preference, they will likely show up in your online or remote course.
Online and remote courses require having an area compatible to your study habits, as well as good study habits. The time you spend on your studies in the online environment is roughly the same as you would spend in an on-campus course.
Technology can often be one of the biggest challenges for online learners. Students who are concerned with their technology skills can identify someone to serve as their technology support person before taking an online course.
