If you’ve got a full-time job or other responsibilities, online classes can help you get your education on your schedule. Here are five things you can do to help make yourself more successful

  1. Choose a good school. Find a school with a good reputation, like Everest. It’ll help you in the long run.
  2. Show up. While there’s no classroom, it’s still important to participate in discussions online or participate in a work group.
  3. Learn your online tools. Before classes even start, learn how to use your online tools. That’s everything from what buttons to click to what’s available to you online.
  4. Use a newer computer. Technical problems can throw a wrench into an online education. Don’t let an old computer hold you back, and make sure you install anti-virus software to keep things running smoothly.
  5. Get to know your teachers and peers. Create an online profile with a picture of yourself and connect with your instructors and fellow students online or over email.
