To recap, while online classes can be more challenging and demand more of your time than face-2-face or in-person classes, the level of autonomy and flexibility you have can be rewarding. In keeping with Our Learning Charter commitments, online learning provides you with many opportunities
to learn independently, experientially, and collaboratively with others,
to engage actively in the learning process through self-evaluation and reflection, and
to take personal responsibility for your learning.
Of course, the activities you find in one online class might be quite different from another. Still, the more committed you and your peers are to the learning process, the tighter your learning community will become, and the more worthwhile the experience will be. Remember to read the syllabus, take note of the course expectations, ask questions if you are unsure, and above all, pace yourself. Log in to your online course daily, if possible, and three times per week at the very least. Try to find the resources and the rhythm that works for you in each course, and you will be sure to succeed.
