Reaching Your Goal of a College Degree In today’s busy world, it’s easy for students to get off track due to their busy lives with work, families, significant others, financial problems, etc. Florida Atlantic University is committed to helping you make it through to your goal of earning a college degree. We encourage you to use any or all of the resources below if you encounter problems along the way. Remember that if you attend class regularly, take good notes, and read the assignments in a timely manner, you should succeed and reach your goals. If you have problems understanding the lecture topics, specific components within the lectures, difficulty with a reading assignment, or would like to review your exams in person, please set up an appointment with the instructor. He will be as flexible as possible to accommodate your busy schedule. Remember; do not wait until the end of the semester to seek assistance! Reach out to the professor as early as possible when the need arises. Instead of just dropping a course or putting a stop to your attendance when “life gets in the way”, the professor encourages you to also use the vast resources here at FAU.

Nuances of eLearning as it applies to Fully Online and Hybrid/Mixed Mode Courses 1. You may not have previously enrolled in an eLearning course. As with face-to-face courses, there is tremendous variety across teaching styles and professors. In this course, the professor will provide most “discussions” via three primary methods: Summary notes provided by the professor to the students Use of technology for some narrated power points or video lectures Electronic communication (email) between the professor and the student 2. Also, in an eLearning environment, the “visual” cues of face-to-face interaction are missing and a person’s tone may be misunderstood. For example, a student may attempt to “joke” with another student, but their smile cannot be seen and their “joke” may be misconstrued as sarcasm or, even worse, a degrading comment. Hence, students are strongly encouraged to proofread their typed communications for explicit clarity and professionalism prior to their delivery to the professor or their peer students. 3. As with any eLearning course, it is fully the student’s responsibility to have the proper hardware, software, and other required technology resources. Please review the following technology-specific information. Students are required to use any “tutorials” or training offered in Canvas to be certain they can use the software as required Students are required to install all plug-ins and other related technology required software in order for Canvas to operate properly Students are required to phone the FAU Computer Help Desk at 561-297-3999 if they have specific technology questions; the professor does not have this information All exams will be distributed to students via the Learning Management System – Canvas.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
