Online Student Expectations
What Should I Expect?
Expect to work as hard, or even harder, than in your face-to-face classes. As in your traditional classes, your success in an online course will be dependent on the time and effort you invest in your coursework.
Also, to help ensure your success, plan to have access to the required technology and a reliable internet connection for the duration of the course.
To prepare you for online coursework, OCC offers a three-hour self-paced course entitled DIST-1000: Online Learning Readiness. This no-cost course is a prerequisite for any student considering registering for an online or hybrid course at OCC, and gets you familiar with navigating the OCC online learning environment while answering common questions and busting several common myths about online learning.
