The successful online learner should:
> Plan to spend 9 hours per week on each 3-credit course.
> Be prepared to interact in large or small group written "discussions" with other students.
> Be able to compete individual or group projects and submit electronic files.
> Ask for help if technical or academic problems arise.
> The ability to download plugins and media readers that may be necessary to access some course content.
> Students with disabilities need to have access to any assistive technologies needed to navigate and read web content. Dillard University Student Support Services can help you determine what tools you need to study online.
> Be able to work collaboratively, even when communication is via email or course discussion boards. You may not meet your fellow students in person or in a "synchronous" conversation, but online learning requires good social skills and "netiquette."
