Helping Online Students Succeed

Pursuing an online education comes with a unique set of challenges. A recent survey by Eduventures, Inc. of 28,000 students highlighted several important factors that impact academic performance. As this article from ecampus explains, Eduventures came up with three specific guidelines to help online students succeed:

1. Align online courses with objective design standards to improve performance

2. Launch a pre- and post-design quality assurance process to ensure objectives and expectations inform every aspect of the student experience

3. Optimize the use of a learning management system to enhance the student experience

 

At the College of Westchester, we work to put students first. Check out our course offerings for online and on-site degree programs.
