Whenever you have questions or concerns, contact your professor by phone or e-mail for help if you have trouble understanding a unit of study.
If you have trouble utilizing Canvas, the course LMS, use the Help button in the upper right corner of the Canvas window to access the Canvas Guides or contact the Canvas Support Hotline.
Plan to spend at least 10 hours per week on each online course.
Make sure you have access to all course materials, including the textbook and all components for the course in Canvas.
If desired, identify a study partner for each course or form a small group of three to five people.
Develop a set of notes for each unit of the course so you can review for examinations without having to read the entire text just before the exam.
Develop a vocabulary list of terms that are important to the course, especially those that are unfamiliar to you. Write definitions in your own words and review them at the end of each reading.
