Online students begin their academic careers like many students-with sheer excitement. Embarking on a dream and making an investment in themselves, they strive for success. While a variety of reasons draw them to online courses, these students may find the non-traditional classroom unexpectedly challenging. Technical skills, time management, and an understanding of personal learning preferences can often overwhelm first-time online students.
