All students and faculty have received training in the online platform to be used during the temporary COVID-19 adjustment period. Whether you have taken online classes before or not, CHCP has a wealth of resources available for students to be successful in the online classroom. While in this temporary online situation because of the COVID-19 outbreak, please remember, your first resource for assistance with your online class is to contact your class instructor. Your second avenue for help will be to contact your program director. Please be sure to have each of their contact information secured in two or three convenient locations. Below, CHCP’s home office has provided some additional tips and resources specifically for our online students.
Identify a specific location and time for studying. Coordinate with your friends and family about your study time and place so they won't disrupt you. A focused hour of work is almost always more effective than studying for several hours with interruptions. Also, studying in a quiet, familiar place can help you make better progress as you are more comfortable and less distracted.
Be sure to review the goals or objectives of the lesson on which you are focusing. It is important to set your mind to pay attention the significant parts of the lesson. They correspond to the main points in the lesson and are often covered in the assignments or on the exams.
Procrastination is one of your worst enemies. Be sure to log into your course everyday it is open. Especially be logged in on time, every time your instructor conducts a “live meeting” in the online video conferencing account in which you were trained. Doing a little at a time, on time, and getting announcements as early as possible are vital to making the most of your online learning. Submitting your assignments on time or ahead of time will go a long way to making your online learning experience less stressful and maybe even more fun.
Be sure to ask for help when you need it. If you have a question or comment, email or post a message within your course to your instructor and/or classmates. Use the technology that is available to you. Performing a search on the Internet or consulting Help features are great places to start resolving some of your questions.
