If you have registered for a course, you will receive an email with login information within 2 business days. Be sure to check your spam folder for important notices. Many elearning platform and student management system emails are filtered to spam.
Be sure you know that you have compatible technology for the course. Sometimes different operating systems and mobile devices may not have the latest mp3 audio software or may display the text differently.
When you login to an elearning platform, type your username and password. Some platforms do not recognize “copy and paste” functions.
Be sure to read the instructions. Become familiar with the course navigation. Note who your instructor is and how you can contact your instructor. This may be via email or within the course.
Realize that you will be required to write a paragraph or two at the end of each lesson. Writing and typing is easier for some people on a traditional desktop/laptop and keyboard.
Understand that your coach instructor may not respond at length or at all beyond a simple acknowledgement to each lesson. Remember, the learning happens as you engage in the exercise of writing.
If you find the course is not meeting your expectations, or if you have questions about the content, let your coach instructor know sooner rather than later. This can often be addressed within the course module. Waiting until the course is completed to voice concerns means you end up missing out!
Remember that technology equals glitches. Be patient with yourself and the technology. Expect the occasional dead link. If you are writing your answer into a form field, consider constructing your answer in word or notepad just in case the SAVE function fails or you click away accidently.
Finally, expect that a self-directed learning experience requires commitment and buy-in from you. Create a sense of anticipation about what will come forth from you as you experience the teaching and engage in the writing.
