Online Learning Essentials Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to complete the orientation if I already have taken an online class?
In some cases your instructor may make the orientation a part of the class assignments in which case you will want to read through it. If not, you may want to complete the steps as you can often get answers to questions that you may have about your online courses.

What should I do if I get behind in my work as a result of a family emergency?
Keeping up with your assignments in an online course is very important. Instructors often put the course work up one week at a time so that it is easier to keep up-to-date. If you find that you cannot complete an assignment on time contact your instructor immediately.

Will the instructor see the results of my successful online student’s assessment?
No. Those results are for you to determine whether your habits indicate that you will be a successful online student.

Can I use my WarriorMail account for personal use?
Yes. You may use your WarriorMail account just as you would a Yahoo or Hotmail account.
