Student Success Resources

The Online Education Initiative (OEI) recognizes that increasing student success involves many aspects of student support beyond that provided by the classroom instructor. Many students are unaware when they register for an online course that the environment requires a skill set that is different from what is needed for the traditional classroom experience. Students must not only be self-directed learners, but also manage their time well and navigate a technology-rich environment that goes beyond social media and smartphones.
