Online Instruction:

AccessAbility Services understands that the switch to online classes may present new or unique challenges. We have put together the following learning strategies to assist you in developing new skills for an online environment.

General Strategies to help navigate an online semester:

  • Be sure to examine and understand the newly online formatted class and be aware and write down times that their might be face time class meetings.
  • Create a routine for your day – it may be similar to your school day when you devote time to coursework and assignments.
  • Create exercise time and include getting outside to walk or take a run.
  • Continue to reach out to resources on campus should you have questions or concerns. Campus staff continue to work to support you, although contact maybe through teleconferencing or email.
