Online classes give you a way to go to school and work at the same time. This might seem easy fit but sometimes can be more difficult. If you are struggling with the transition, you are used to having interaction with your classmates, immediate face-to-face feedback from professors, and focus better in school. There are ways to make the transition easier from traditional to online classroom setting.
The first way is online class enrolled at a community college or university. To help with the transition, you will need to attend orientation. During the orientation, the department head will talk about the program, students will get their users IDs, and students will be required to log-in to the school’s systems and set up an e-mail account(http://oedb.org/library/beginning-online-learning/how-to-switch-from-traditional-to-online-classes). Before classes would start, you will need to familiarize yourself on how to use their emailing system and courses you are taking.
Secondly, you will all the information you can have about personnel. You might run into a problems and you will need to know who would be the right person to help with solving the problem. Lastly, you would need to make sure you manage your time to take the classes. Ask your profressors how much time is needed for each class. Its very important you set up a block of time for each class. To help wiith your time management skills, you will need to get into a set routine.
To help make your decision easier, studies show students in online learning conditions will perform better. The Department of Education found, on average, students doing some or all of the course online would rank in the 59th percentile in tested performance, compared with the average classroom students in the 50th percentile( http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/08/19/study-finds-that-online-education-beats-the-classroom). If you decide to change from traditional to online, your learning experience will be tailored around your individual needs.
