Online learning can make you feel tired and ready to quit.  Remember, we all have bad days.  The key is:  Do Not Quit!


Reading all course requirements and making sure you understand them is crucial.  In a virtual environment, it is all up to you.  Remember, this is a more convenient way to complete your education, it's not easier.

It is up to the student to take charge of the learning process and make decisions on their own.  Know all deadlines and requirements without any doubts or questions so that you will be successful.


The online learner must be willing to reach out for assistance.  At the very hint of difficulty, whether it be technology or course content, you must be a take-charge kind of student and find resources to overcome obstacles.

Most all of your communication will be written.  You have to get comfortable and efficient at expressing clear thoughts in writing.   Always think through your ideas and responses before sending.  Make sure the message is accurate.

Study Habits

Many students will agree that learning online requires more time and commitment than the traditional methods.  Be prepared to spend extra time studying and researching questions.
