Succeeding in an Online Course

Participate Actively in Your Class

The key to succeeding within the class is to actively participate in it. The less engaged you are with the content of the class, with the instructor, or with the other students, the less chance you will be successful.

Therefore, if you have questions about anything in class, ask them. Many instructors set up specific discussion boards designed for students to answer questions from other students. Many also include frequently-asked-questions (FAQs) for students to get answers before asking questions.

Instructors always welcome questions from students. Within the Staff Information section of your course, you will see the various ways in which you can contact your instructor.
