6 tips for success[1]

  1. 1. 6Tips for Success as an online student By Inez Woortmann
  2. 2. 1- Establish a regular study routine: • Chose a place and a time to work on course assignments • Develop a time-management strategy • Balance your workload • Avoid procrastination • Plan ahead
  3. 3. 2- Have a clear focus: • Establish a goal each time you log-on to help you accomplish what you need to get done. • Avoid distractions
  4. 4. 3-Develop online communication skills: • Compose posts in a word processing program. Then copy and paste them into the online environment. • Practice an informal but organized, concise, and clear writing style that aids online communication • Be tactful. Be careful when trying to express humor or irony. Don't assume that your joking or sarcastic tone will come through when others read your responses.
  5. 5. 4- Make the most of online discussions. • Make connections with fellow students and be an active participant in discussions – Involvement will contribute to the personality and warmth of the online community • Reflect before you post – Meaningful interactions will lead to a better understanding of the issues proposed throughout the course
  6. 6. 5- Make the most of groupwork: • If you have been assigned to an online team or study group, work with your team members actively from the start. – Team members will benefit from each others' ideas and experiences and can depend on one another to complete assigned tasks.
  7. 7. 6- Ask questions: • Don't be afraid to admit you have doubts • Head off problems early by asking questions of your facilitator(s) and/or fellow students as soon as a difficulty arises • Make questions useful to your learning
