3 Resources for Extra Help as an Online Student

Instructor Blog: Key Habits of “A” Students

After teaching for over seven years, I wanted to share some attributes of successful students. All students have challenges with work and family obligations, but there are characteristics that “A” students share despite obstacles and commitments.

Plan, Plan, Plan

One of the best practices of my most successful students is looking over assignments early in the week. This allows plenty of time to email instructors with any questions as well as produce your best possible work.

Print the Tracking Calendar

We don’t want our students to be surprised. Instructors spend time creating a tracking calendar that outlines assignments and due dates. Spending the time writing assignments on your personal calendar can prevent end of session stress!  Also, often times the directions for a major assessment such as a portfolio project or midterm will be posted early. My best students begin looking at the directions and asking questions, even in week 1!                                                                                         Read More…
