Though success in online and on-ground classes require many of the same elements: time commitment, organization, and careful reading; there are some common pitfalls and shared solutions that tend to be helpful. This Prezi seeks to address these.

Transcript of Successfully Navigating your Online Course

Take Notes by Hand
If you would keep a paper notebook for your on-ground classes or work responsibilities, use one for your online classes as well.
Taking notes by hand promotes better engagement, comprehension, and long-term retention.
If you don’t take notes, you miss out on an important opportunity for information processing.
Keep a Calendar & To-Do List
Consider the time commitment required by a class when deciding how many courses you can reasonably expect to fit into your schedule.
Plot out school/work responsibilities, family time, sleep, and self-care for a typical week.
Include the requisite in-class/online time as well as your 8 hours of study time.
Be sure to include outdoor activities and creative time.
Overextension isn’t the way to reach your goals; it’s a sure recipe for burnout.
Practice honesty & self-kindness!
Carnegie Unit
Per 1 credit earned:
50 minutes in-class + 2 hours of study outside of class.

For a 4-credit online class:
3 hours, 20 minutes in class
(For my classes that's 2.5 weekly hours in Canvas +
50 weekly minutes in Twitter)
+ 8 hours of reading and writing time
that should take place outside of Canvas.

Per 4-credit class:
11 hours and 20 minutes of time each week.

Include school projects, work, family, and self-care.
Consider Google Calendar, your trusty planner, or any other method that works for you.
Whatever you use, be sure to go through your syllabus carefully and transfer all of the relevant dates so that when you glance at your calendar you get a full picture of your responsibilities.
Schedule Your Time Carefully

As you would in an on-ground class, keep a printed copy of your syllabus handy for easy referral.
Consult it when you have a question; there is an excellent chance your professor has anticipated that question and answered it for you on the syllabus.
Know Your Routines
If you have questions about your classes routines, ask!
I generally open my classes on Fridays for the coming week.
The week “officially” runs Monday through Friday.
I choose to keep my weekends screen-free but do respond to text message requests from students who are having trouble accessing course materials. Before texting me, please do the following:
first check to make sure you have completed all of the prior week’s activities
and then chat Canvas help.
(Combined, these things tend to solve a full 99% of access issues).
Read the Syllabus!
