If you are a Grade 10 student, you will be required to work in a designated spot as outlined by your school advisors. Online courses offer different freedoms and responsibilities than in-class courses. Students in online courses are subject to all school expectations, including appropriate use of language in communication, responsibility for assignment completion, and regular communication with their online teacher(s).

The following document serves as a guideline for students and those advising students interested in participating in an online course. The qualities listed below are ones that have been identified as the most important in the overall success of the online learner. 1. Do you have good written communication skills? In an online course, almost all communication is in written form. An online student needs to be comfortable with written materials and directions. An online student must also feel comfortable expressing thoughts and opinions in written form. 2. Are you self-motivated and self-disciplined? Experiencing success in an online course requires commitment and discipline. There is no traditional classroom to sit in on a regular basis so an online student has to be self-directed and conscientious about participating and completing requirements. Good time management is crucial to the success of an online student. 3. Are you willing to contribute and actively participate? An online student has to be willing to actively participate in the course. Active participation means interacting with the instructor and classmates on a regular basis. An online student should feel comfortable using email, discussion groups, and chat functions as means of communication with others associated with the course. 4. Do you have basic computer skills? An online student should have a basic level of computer skills that will help enhance learning. An online student should have a working knowledge of the following computer skills: a. Create, save, copy, move and manage files and directories on a computer. b. Run applications on a computer when needed for a course. c. Use a browser, (eg. Internet Explorer or Firefox) including navigational tools such as the “Back” button, bookmarks and favorites. d. Use a search engine to conduct research on the Internet. e. Send and receive email. f. Send and receive a file attachment from email. g. Paste text into an email message (eg. from a word processor). h. Describe any problems accurately to technical support (eg. copy error messages). 5. Do you believe that learning can occur online? Online courses are not for everyone. An online student needs to believe that high quality learning can take place without a traditional classroom. 6. Are you a committed student? An online student needs to be committed to the course. Keeping up with the course and completing all the work on time is essential. If a student gets behind in an online course, it is very difficult to catch up.
