Create a dedicated study space- creating a designated study space encourages students to stay organized and establish a routine.  

Stay organized- Create weekly and monthly schedules for all assignments. When students can easily access when assignments are due, they are better equipped for success.

Figure out your learning style- The best learning environments are unique to each student. Some students work best in the morning and others work best in the evening. Some students are more visual learners and others learn best by listening to content. As an online student, there is more flexibility towards where and when learning takes place. Students who are prepared to incorporate their online program into their learning styles are more likely to succeed.  


Actively participate in class forums- Students should make goals to actively participate in online discussions and forums. Active participation can help students engage and digest the material they are learning, while also keeping students accountable by ensuring they are keeping up with coursework.
