Where to Begin 

  • To begin your course successfully it is highly recommended that before you start any of your assignments that you take time to review your course syllabus in its entirety. Your course syllabus is essential to passing your course effectively.
  • As you review, make note of your course objectives and student outcomes. These will tell you what your professor is looking for and hoping to see reflected in your assignments. The statements used in these sections should appear in your answers and how you assimilate the material.
  • Lastly, review your grading criteria and measurements so you know what you professor is using to determine your final grades. This way you won’t have to guess why you received a certain score. If you have questions about your course syllabus you should contact your professor at the beginning of the course and not at the end when your scores are final.

Course Success Tips

  • Before jumping in to complete your first assignment, REVIEW THE COURSE TIPS! These will help guide how you need to approach your coursework.
  • Take time to review your entire course schedule. This is where you see all of the assignments that will be due throughout the course. This will help you to prepare your time and your schedule to complete what you need to pass with flying colors.
  • Set days in the week to accomplish your assignments. We recommend blocking off hours over the weekend to complete assignments you were not able to complete during the week.
  • Try not to wait to the last minute and most of all, do not skip assignments in hopes you will finish later.
  • The pace of this course requires that you are organized, focused, and committed to a working routine.
  • Lastly, use your weekends wisely. While in school it is expected you will need to make sacrifices. Weekends are definitely one of them.
  • Take time to not only study to complete your test but catch up on lectures and reading assignments. This will help you stay ahead or caught up without feeling so stressed or rushed.
  • The week flies by so be sure you build time in for your studies and your focused attention.

Learning Tips 

  • Before you listen to your first lecture, review your discussion post question or assignment activity to see what will be required in your answer.
  • Make note of what you will need for your response to your assignments
  • While you listen to your lecture, make note of information, revelations, and comments that will help you answer your assignment question.
  • Then record the information from the lecture you need to answer your assignment in your course Journal Worksheet.
  • Refer back to these worksheets when answering your discussion post, or weekly assignment.
  • Be sure to look up words you do not understand.
  • Also, review the Scripture references provided in the lecture or course syllabus
  • Start off your answers to your assignment questions or activities by explaining what you understand about what is being asked and what the question is looking for.
  • Never write or present information to your teacher or as if your readers would already know what you mean by your statements.
  • Write to the audience you must reach and help them understand this information.
  • Explain your point of view thoroughly and provide evidence why your viewpoint is valid.
  • Try to avoid simply regurgitating information or over using quotes from your lecture or readings.
  • Find alternate ways to explain what you understand from learning the information.
  • The goal of your assignments are assimilation. This means to absorb, incorporate, make a part of you, or bring into accordance or agreement in speech.
  • Assimilation means to make your answers resemble the knowledge presented in the course.
  • To not repeat the same information over and over again, pay attention to the word choices used in your questions or assignments. Words like explain, expound, discuss, share, use, identify, distinguish, articulate, assimilate, define, and the like are all clues that reveal what the assignment is asking for. Pay attention to these terms and others to give you insight on what perspective your answers should cover.
