Strategies for Online Learning Success


Strategies for online learning success: 

  • Complete the Orientation for Online Students before the semester starts.

  • Plan time each day to work on your online course, try to make it the same time each day to develop a routine.

  • Remember, your online course will require as much work as your face-to-face class. Start your assignments early and don’t get behind.

  • Contact your instructor immediately if you have a question.

  • Check your LLCC email account daily.

  • Create a folder on your computer for each online course you are taking. Name the folder the same name as the online course. Use a flash drive to backup all of your course work.
  • Keep a notebook for each online course to organize your printed documents.
