Since the late 1990's, thousands of students have successfully completed eLearning courses in Georgia.   Interviews and surveys show that these high-performing online learners share some important characteristics. Students are most likely to succeed in eLearning when they

  • have reliable access to an Internet-connected computer.
  • know how to navigate web sites, manage email, work with files, and do other basic computer tasks.
  • can organize their own time to complete assignments and meet deadlines.
  • participate actively in online discussions.
  • are comfortable asking for help or clarification when needed.
  • are prepared to work as hard online as they would in a face-to-face class
