Division of Psychology and Counseling Log-in early and often! Studies show that students learn better in the online environment when:
They plan ahead, which means logging into the course early to get acquainted with the course's structure and developing a schedule for one's self
Log-in often, instead of trying to complete a large amount of work/reading in one setting. It is best to break things up into small intervals, multiple times throughout the week.
Ideally students should spend 30 minutes to an hour online at least 4-5 times throughout a week. For some online courses it would be beneficial to check-in more frequently, for any announcements made by the instructor, new class emails, and new discussion board posts. As part of the continuous growth in distance education, how do you prepare for success? Tips from GSU Advisors who have taken online courses
