Keys to Success in the Online Learning Environment

  • Time Management
    It’s easy to get behind in an online course, so utilize the course schedule in each course to help you stay organized. Schedule time in your day to study, read the learning materials, and complete assignments. Review the syllabus to know the time requirements of each course. 

  • Communication
    Communicate often with your faculty about what support you need. If you need extensions, or have difficult circumstances, please reach out to your assigned faculty so they can provide support and resources. 

  • Create a Community
    Even though you are in an online environment and won’t see your classmates face to face, you can still create a learning community with your peers. Reach out in the community forum and create study groups or text message groups to support each other throughout this journey

  • Ask Questions
    Don’t be afraid to ask questions or seek clarification if something doesn’t make sense. Utilize the community forums if you have questions that others might have or would benefit from hearing. If it’s of a personal nature, reach out directly to your faculty.

  • Remember your End Goal
    When life is stressful and overwhelming, remember that you are on a journey and this is just one step. Do you best with where you are at, and focus on the things you can control. Take it one assignment at a time, and keep that end goal (YOUR BSN!) in sight. 

  • Self-Care
    While staying on top of assignments is important, so is balance. Find one or two things that you enjoy doing and make sure you include those in your daily or weekly lives. Set aside time to “unplug” from the computer, even if it’s just for an hour.
