    Developing the Skills Required to Succeed in Online College

    Last updated 3 years ago

    Taking college courses online offers students a certain amount of freedom not afforded by a traditional classroom setting. Yet because of that added freedom, students often find themselves struggling to succeed.

    If you are currently completing the requirements of an online education, the following tips will help you keep yourself at the head of your class:

    Create a Private Work Space

    As an online college student, you will not have the benefit of a classroom setting to facilitate disciplined learning. You can, however, substitute for the classroom experience by creating a work space of your own. Ensure your own college “classroom” is quiet and set apart from any major audio or visual distractions, and keep the space as organized and clutter-free as possible.

    Set and Stick to a Schedule

    Begin each week of online college classes by creating a schedule for yourself that blocks off time for online class-taking, discussion posts, studying, and assigned work. Keep to this agenda as you would a standard class schedule, using your online syllabus to guide you. Depending on the subject in question, allocate approximately seven to ten hours per week for undisturbed coursework.

    Hone Your Online Communication Skills

    In order to successfully complete online college classes, you will need to become proficient in cross-platform communication. Practice by emailing friends and family using a professional tone, and try not to fall into the habit of including informal emoticons, grammar, fonts, or shorthand in online communications with your academic peers and college professors. You’ll also need to familiarize yourself with your school’s online website to avoid missing assignments, live discussions, or timed tests. Resist the urge to check your favorite websites, including social network pages, in order to stay on track.

    Would you like to learn more about these and other skills that will be necessary for success at an online college? Contact the advisors at Monroe College for details. If you are currently taking one or more of the classes we offer then speak with our staff members about how you can improve your online studying and test-taking habits.
