Checklist for Succeeding at Distance Learning

When preparing to participate in distance learning, especially in the event of an emergency, there are a few things to consider:

  • There is a lot of support available to you. Have a question or can't get something to work? Ask Us!
  • Your distance learning experience will be different from your face-to-face learning experience.
  • You will need to be flexible, as things will change and may not always go smoothly as students, faculty, and staff adjust to the changes.
  • Your professor will develop a plan for communicating with you, either through Canvas or through email.
