TIPS FOR TAKING AN ONLINE CLASS

OHIO UNIVERSITY - CHILLICOTHE

 

 

Thank you for wanting to register for online classes at OUC! Here are some tips to help you in making appropriate selections in order to pursue your education.

 

 

➢ Make sure that you have access to the computer, software, and Internet connections

that you will need. <Blackboard Requirements>

 

➢ Be Disciplined – set aside specific times to work on the class, just like you would for a

face-to-face class. Set up a calendar and stick to the timeline. Manage your time carefully. <Academic Calendar>

 

➢ Meet all deadlines – better yet, try to complete the work in advance so that you can

edit and polish it to perfection. Spend time learning about the software that is used to deliver the class. Explore it and learn how to do the work that is required of you. If you have trouble, ask for help.

 

➢ Get to know the instructor by using their office hours, email, or video interaction

tools. Get to know the other students by joining in online discussions, reaching out via email, or inviting them to study sessions. <Faculty & Staff Directory>

 

➢ Eat healthy food, get plenty of sleep, and have some fun/exercise to manage the

of a college class. <Health & Wellness Center>

 

➢ Have a backup plan for computer failure, Internet failure, and always have an extra

backup of your assignments – just in case!

 

Ask for Help! Ask for Help! Ask for Help! Use the Writing and Math Centers,

visit with your advisor, contact your instructor – they are there to help you!

➢ Before you drop, talk to an advisor. <Advising Center>
