GC Tips for Learning Online
Check in Often
As classes move online, the most important thing you can do is check your official GC email address and GeorgiaView regularly. Reach out to your professors for guidance.
Set a Schedule
Treat an online course like an on-campus course. Create a route and stick to it. Set aside a regular time to work on assignments online.
Find a Space
Try and find a space to study that is as free from distractions as possible and is comfortable. A space that helps you be productive will be extremely important.
Patience is Key
This is a new situation for everyone, including your professors. Finding new routines and strategies will take time. Be patient with yourself and those around you.
There is Help
If you need help, ask your professors. Also, the Learning Center, the Writing Center, the Advising Center, SERVE and, basically, all of Georgia College is here to help.
This is not Permanent
Remember, things will eventually get back to normal; until then, the entire faculty, staff, and administration at Georgia College is working tirelessly to ensure your success. In the meantime, stay well, get some rest, and wash your hands.
Where to Go for Help
This fall we will provide a mix of in-person and virtual support services, including getting help with technology or getting health or emotional support from our Student Health Services or Counseling Services.
- Here is a helpful guide to the different academic support services on campus
- Academic Advisement: You can easily connect with a member of your academic advising team by email or phone.
Supplemental Instruction: Supplemental Instruction (SI) continues to support courses that had face-to-face SI Leaders through online WebEx sessions. Students will receive details from their SI Leader on how to access the WebEx sessions.
