CHABSS Student Resources for the Virtual Environment

Some ways the CHABSS Dean’s Office can assist students

 

General tips that may help you with your online classes 

  • Do not leave your assignments for the last minute! More than in a face-to-face course, each one of you needs to be responsible for your own learning progress. Do not fall behind and manage your time wisely. 
  • Do not wait until the last minute to submit an assignment in case you experience a technical difficulty.
  • Online learning may feel isolating. Connect with other students in the class via email, forum, etc. 
  • The use of technology can be frustrating when it does not work properly. Check your devices prior to a Zoom/Team/Skype/etc. conference, prior to taking a test, or submitting an assignment.
  • When you submit a test or an assignment, take a picture – it will serve as proof as well as for your records.
