Online Learning IconThe Online Learning module provides a bank of study skill tools for students to select, as they learn and utilize course content. Above all, this tutorial encourages academic success and a growth mindset by: drawing upon the affordances of online learning; creating a schedule that maximizes class time and assignment completion time; and underscores the value in connecting with the College community, especially in an online world. 

The tutorial provides a space for students to reflect on recent changes in learning, and to adopt research-supported actions and habits as they adapt to these recent changes. We know that student success is built on being an active learner, creating routines, balancing priorities, and implementing a system for planning ahead.
