Student Success in Online Learning Training

 

Taking a cyber course is a big decision. Participating in a cyber course is very different from a seated course. Discussion boards, email, online chats, online tests/quizzes, submitting assignments in Blackboard...all of these can be components of your online course. Participation, self-motivation, and competency with technology are all important factors as well.

The following training opportunities are to help you become better prepared for working in an online course. Come to one or all...it is up to your schedule and your needs.

Complete the information below and select the date(s) that you would like to attend.  Feel free to sign up for more than one. The schedule and form below will be updated with additional dates as they are added.  You can submit information on this form more than once to sign up for additional training sessions.

This is a great opportunity to ask questions and get some assistance with Blackboard. When you attend the training, make sure that you know you user id and password.  Go to https://my.vccs.edu and try logging in to make sure that everything is working properly at least a couple of days before the training.  If you have difficulties logging in, send an email to sishelp@southside.edu requesting assistance.
