An online course (Links to an external site.) is a course that is taken via the Internet. Online courses and face-to-face courses have the same learning goals, objectives, and amount of work. However, online students require a different kind of self-motivation, because in a typical online course, individual attention is given only when requested. Although you can set your own daily schedule, you still have due dates for your coursework. Online courses at Spoon River College are not individual, self-study courses. Students interact with the instructor and each other through e-mail, threaded discussions, and sometimes group work. Typically, online students participate in their courses three or more days per week.
Online exams and quizes are provided through the Learning Management System (Moodle). There are a variety of ways that instructors can make online assessments:
Timed quizes require quiet, uninterrupted time, since they must be finished in one sitting.
Untimed exams allow students to begin and end them during a period of a few hours to a few days (depending on the instructor).
Not all online classes include traditional exams. Most classes provide other means of assessment such as papers, projects or group projects. Most online classes also include intensive reading and writing.
There are no required hours to be in class on the campus of SHTC. You can access your class from home, a friend or relative’s home, a library, or from a hotel room while traveling – anywhere there is a computer and Internet access.
To be successful in an online class, a student should be able to:
Open a web browser (Links to an external site.) such as Firefox (Links to an external site.), Chrome (Links to an external site.), or Internet Explorer, connect to the Internet, and type in a web address.
Search and access websites with a web browser
Understand basic web/Internet navigation
Log in to a site with a user name and password
Copy and paste text from one document to another
Attach a document or file to an email

It’s not completely necessary to have a computer at home if you’re willing to commit to using a computer at your local library, a friend or relative’s house, or one of the Academic Success Centers (Links to an external site.). As described above, you need to have a backup plan that consists of one of those locations in case you would have computer problems. However, most student take online courses because they are convenient. For most students, the best scenario for taking an online course is having a computer at home that can be accessed whenever the student has a free moment.
There are many ways you can access their feedback. The most common method is by simply going to the same place where you uploaded the work. Another common method is to follow the link in the recent activity block (if the teacher has included it on the course). Another method would be to access the grade book and then follow the link for the required assignment. Depending upon how the assignment was set up, you may receive an email when it has been marked with a direct link to the feedback.
Like face-to-face classes, online classes include weekly assignments, readings, and discussions centered around the course’s objectives and competencies. The obvious difference is that you are not going to a physical classroom to interact with your classmates and instructor. Learning in an online classroom still requires involvement and participation, but the motivation for this must come primarily from the student. Students are responsible for posting their informed opinions and thoughts, and also responsible for responding to classmates. Some students find that participating in online discussions suits their learning styles quote well, because online discussions allow for thought and planning before commenting, unlike in a traditional classroom.
In a word: no. Depending on your study habits and willingness to participate, some students consider online classes to be more difficult than face-to-face classes.
It’s important to note that a successful online student must be self-motivated and cannot procrastinate. Many online classes contain the same amount of information as in a face-to-face course, but meet for eight weeks instead of sixteen. Since that is the case, if a student falls behind, catching up can be very difficult.
Online classes are also not independent study courses, since they have a weekly schedule just like a face-to-face course. Students are able to log in to their classes and complete their assignments late at night, but each assignment will have a due date just like in face-to-face classes. As in any class, looking ahead each week to plan study time accordingly usually creates successful outcomes.
One last thing: many students thrive in online courses. “I wish I had more time to think of an answer for this discussion” is no longer an issue, and many students really enjoy the extra time they can take to formulate an opinion.
There could be many reasons but the most probable is you have simply forgotton your password, are trying the wrong one or are entering it incorrectly. Some other things to think about include:
Does your username or password contain a mixture of upper and lower case letters? It should be entered exactly.
