Let's Find Tips for Being Successful Online

This may be you first time to take an online class.When we take a trip somewhere, we often try to find it useful to ask someone who has been there what to see and do and what not to do. The same is true for taking an online course. Others have taken this journey before you and have advice for you.

Choose at least four of the sites below and look for similarities in advice given. Note these in your travel journal ( a piece of paper is fine). Next examine the tips and choose several that you think will be useful for you. Post these findings on the discussion board for your online class.
