Online Classes: Get Questions Answered

Students enrolled in online classes can get questions answered at the Student Success Seminar August 28 at 9 a.m. and 10 a.m.

"The online success seminar is something we have offered for several semesters for online students," said Mary Nunaley, Instructional Designer and associate professor. "It is designed to be an orientation for the online courses, myvolstateonline."

Nunaley said that they will cover items such as how to log into online courses, and discuss the difference between Vol State and Regents Online Degree Program (RODP) courses.
Nunaley has these tips for online students:

1. Log into courses at least 2-3 times a week. Make an appointment with yourself so that you actually log in and complete the work, as it can be easy to forget.

2. Create a study space for yourself at home where you have everything you need in one spot.

3. Make sure family and friends understand the time you are spending in your online classes is just as important as if you are in the classroom.

You'll find a link to your online courses on My Vol State...the same site that you registered for classes. Often it is called "Elearn" or My Vol State Online. Classes start Saturday and you won't see your classes until then. There will be a link on the elearn tab, probably under academics. Visit our Facebook page for more tips
