Keys to Online Success
Taking an online course gives you a lot of flexibility in where and when you do your coursework. That flexibility, however, means you have to take some extra steps to be successful. You have to be proactive about creating some of the structure you get naturally in a face-to-face course.
Have Correct Expectations
A popular myth among students is that online classes are easier than face-to-face classes. While online classes offer more flexibility and generally require little to no travel, they are absolutely as rigorous as face-to-face classes. Many of our online classes at Pellissippi are taught by the same faculty members who teach them in the classroom, so rest assured that you will be challenged with interesting course material and assignments.

Have Needed Technical Skills
Students need a minimum skill set to function effectively in the online environment including utilizing email, uploading and downloading files, installing plug-ins or software, browsing the Internet, etc. If a student has a gap in these skills when starting an online course, they are at increased risk of struggling.

Have Good Time Management Skills

Have Good Academic/Study Skills
