Tips, Tricks for Success in Online Learning

Are you someone that thrives in a structured, on-campus learning environment, but is struggling to set deadlines at home and keep up with online learning?

Associate Professor of Practice Julie Cajigas has some tips on how students can boost their success in an online learning environment.

“Students should first carefully consider the options available to them,” Cajigas said.   “Synchronous options are great for students who feel that having a fixed time with live instruction will help them succeed.  Some students thrive with asynchronous online courses, which allow them to work at their own pace.”

One issue students are facing is maintaining a work and school balance.  In a typical semester, the time students can work is limited due to physically being in class.  A 15-credit schedule means about 15 hours of in-class time, plus time for studying and homework.
