Tips for Learning Online

Communication PreviousNext

Your online course work will require extensive written communication, particularly with e-mail or through thread discussions, also known as message boards. Threaded discussions are text-based messages that allow you and your classmates to engage in classroom discussions. Remember that these discussions are viewable to the entire class and follow the rules of Netiquette.

Here are some additional communication tips:

  • Fill out your personal profile located on the Classlist link of your eLearning course. You only have to fill this out once; it will appear in all of your courses and is a great way to introduce yourself to your classmates.
  • Most instructors will have an activity so that you can meet your classmates. If they don’t, take the initiative and e-mailyour class.
  • Find a “Study Buddy.” Students who utilize study groups or buddies typically do much better in class.
