How to Succeed in Online College Classes

Hello, hello, is this thing on? I’m hearing you but not you.

Oh, okay, you unmuted yourself? Well, can you mute yourself again? It’s my turn to talk.

Welcome, everyone, to today’s lecture: How to Succeed in Online College Classes. I’m your professor, Dr. Zoom, and I’m going to be explaining everything you’ll need to know for the rest of the semester in this course.

You probably already got my email attachment “Updated Syllabus,” so now let’s talk about the practical ways you can manage your time and get everything done.

Let me share this slideshow on my screen...really quickly here…aha! Can you see that? (Scroll through the images below to see Dr. Zoom's screen.)

Students, just like at MC, there are still so many things trying to get your attention now - the news, your dog, your parents, Netflix - but through it all, you can find a daily routine similar to the one above. You can also conquer the distractions by working late at night or on the weekends - whatever works for you!

One unique aspect of this time we are all sharing is that none of us has done this before. But you and I - we have done college before, and that comes with about as crazy a schedule as you can imagine. So in some ways, we are more prepared for this chaos than anyone else.

We can do late nights or early mornings. We can operate technology. We can ask for help when we need it.

That’s where the MC Writing Center comes in to help. As an intelligent university student, you know you cannot do everything. But you can get started, put your best work in, and ask for another’s feedback.

And that is exactly why we have online correspondence and online chat appointments from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday at You can find a tutor who fits your assignment needs well, and you can get some friendly advice and suggestions!

All right. Y’all have a good week and wash your hands. Stay safe. All right. You too. Thanks. Uh-huh. Stay safe. Okay.
