Succeed in Winter Session
Get the most out of your winter session course by following these tips.
1. Plan and organize
If you don’t have time to take an online course during the winter session or if a conflict arrives, drop the course as soon as possible. Let your friends and family know that you will be taking a course during the winter break to help with scheduling conflicts and distractions.
You will be earning three credit hours in a three-week time frame. Be prepared to spend at least 35 hours per week working on your course.
If you don’t have your textbook and course materials before the first day of class, you will fall behind. You will need to hit the ground running!
You are responsible for knowing the requirements for your course, as well as the expectations, assignments, and due dates for all assignments.
Set aside a block of time each day to work on your course. Keep a copy of your assignments in case they do not submit correctly. Take notes while reading or watching videos and refer to your notes when studying.
Have a consistent and quiet workplace where you can study and work on assignments. Get an early start on course assignments. Don’t procrastinate. Work ahead on your course assignments when you can.
Create a schedule with due dates and plan how you will manage your time. Use a calendar to stay on top of your coursework. Keep in mind that you may have assignments due on the first day of class.
2. Review technology and email requirements
Get comfortable in Blackboard before the university closes for winter break. If you have trouble accessing the course in Blackboard or if you have trouble finding course materials, contact your instructor as soon as you can.
Be sure that your technology is readily available and reliable. Create a technology back-up plan in case your computer or Internet connection stops working. The Thomas Cooper Library will be open most days during your course. Check the hours of operation for the library. If you are not located in Columbia, public libraries typically have computer and Internet access for use.
Be sure that you are familiar with the technical requirements and skills that you need to be successful in your course before the course starts. You want to focus your attention on your course materials and not technology issues during your course.
Read the announcements in your course to see if new information has been conveyed. If you are expected to participate in discussion boards, check to see who has replied to your posts. Be sure to check your email often. Blackboard uses your @email.sc.edu by default.
3. Engage and learn
You are expected to treat your instructor and peers with respect and communicate with your instructor and peers in a professional manner.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help. If you don’t understand course content or if you have issues in your course, ask your instructor for assistance as soon as you need help.
If you have questions about the syllabus or course assignments, proactively ask your instructor for assistance prior to the due date of the assignment. Get to know your classmates at the beginning of the course. Interacting with your peers is critical to having an engaging experience in your course.
Academic integrity is very important to the Carolina Community. You may feel overwhelmed by the amount of work you need to complete in your three-week course. We expect you to approach your work with honesty, integrity and follow the values in the Carolinian Creed.
