6. They find their passion
Students should aim to choose a program that gives their life purpose, which will, in turn, find purpose in their coursework and assignments.
7. They actively participate
Online students should plan to be active in all discussions, not only with instructors, but also reading and responding to classmates.
8. They take breaks
Students should engage in coursework in “chunks” of time rather than in long stretches in front of the computer, with short breaks at least every hour.
9. They schedule their time
Online students should not let the convenience of an online course fool them into thinking that it requires less time than a traditional face-to-face course. Make sure they set a schedule for their work and they work within the schedule.
10. They communicate with others
Successful students take advantage of the opportunities to make new friends online and interact with staff and instructors. Schools should provide resources for them to join clubs, student interest groups, and social gatherings.
