Best Practice: How to succeed online.

According to a study of community college online students from 2001 to 2010 (Fetzner, 2013), students named the following top three reasons when they did not succeed in their online courses:

  1. I got behind and it was too hard to catch up.
  2. I had personal problems (health, job, child care).
  3. I couldn’t handle studying plus work or family responsibilities.

Blackboard Learn Discussion Forums

In discussions, you can share thoughts and ideas about class materials. In Blackboard Learn, course members can have the thoughtful discussions that take place in the traditional classroom, but with the advantages of asynchronous communication. Participants don’t need to be in the same location or time zone, and you can take the time to consider your responses carefully. Blackboard Learn Discussion Forums
