Students are encouraged to follow these four steps to succeed in online learning.
- Talk to your Local Education Guide (LEG).
When you sign up for an online class through the Northeast Wisconsin Online Network (NEWON), your school assigns you to a Local Education Guide (LEG). Your Local Education Guide (LEG) can help you:
* Access your online course.
* Contact your online instructor.
* Get extra help with your coursework.
* Make sure you're on track to complete your online course.
- Get oriented.
Online learning is a whole new ball game, and every class is different. Before you start your work, get oriented!
Read the welcome messages in your course and email.
Look for orientation materials when you log in to your course. They'll be called "orientation materials," or "student orientation," or "getting started," or …. Read them! (Even if it doesn't say you have to.)
Learn how to navigate the online learning environment.
Ask your online instructor questions if you are confused about anything at all. [Copy your Local Education Guide (LEG) on these emails.]
- Stay organized.
Buy a small binder for your online class and fill it with printouts of your:
* Orientation materials
* Course schedule
* Downloaded reading materials
- Ask for help.
Just because your online instructor isn't in the classroom doesn't mean you can't raise your hand. You'll just need to raise it with an email. You can ask your online instructor for:
* Help with the work for your class.
* Answers to questions about an assignment.
* Feedback on your grades for assignments and exams.
* More information about what's expected of you in the class.
