Supporting Your Online Learning

For many of us, e-learning occurs amidst busy work schedules, family priorities, and other challenges. ECC's faculty and staff have worked hard to develop a wide selection of online courses to allow you to learn and progress toward your degree or certificate at a distance.

Please review our Distance Learning Orientation course for some general strategies for using our online learning management system. 

Strategies to thrive in your online classes.

  • Successful online students become experts at defining their priorities and building (and keeping) a schedule that allows them to focus on the most important things to them. 
  • Spending a little time upfront getting and staying organized in your online classes will save you time throughout the semester and help keep your stress levels low.
  • Think of the discussion board of an online class as the heart of the classroom. 
  • Practicing good “Netiquette” means adhering to certain online behaviors to know about and practice.
  • Success in college (and, honestly, success in life) is primarily based on how consistently we follow through on the goals and aspirations we set for ourselves.
  • Cultivate curiosity in all you do for school, and watch as that curiosity "pulls" you through the difficult moments.
