3 VI. Computer Maintenance **South Arkansas Community College does not provide students with technical support for their personal computers or laptops.

You must navigate to the blackboard.southark.edu website at least twice a month and click the Check My Browser link to ensure the Internet Browser you are using is compatible with Blackboard and other campus technology. Once the Check My Browser link is clicked, verify that the following settings on your computer have a status of Good. *Browser Type Cookies enabled *JavaScript enabled Screen size *Flash plug-in Acrobat plug-in *Java plug-in *Popups enabled *If the status is not good or green on these particular settings, it is highly likely you will experience problems with campus technologies. VII. Practices or Habits of Successful Distance Learners Practice good time management. Manage your course assignments, activities and readings without persistent reminders and guidance from the instructor. Complete coursework in a self-paced, timely manner. Student Best Practices, Last Updated: April 29, 2015 Page 3

4 Do not procrastinate or put off your work or assignments in the event of technology outages or software glitches. Keep track of course assignment and activities using a course calendar. Create and establish a regular study schedule to help you stay disciplined in meeting all course requirements. A sample study schedule follows: Check at 8 a.m., 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Login to Blackboard daily 5:30 p.m. Participate in online discussion from 12 to 1 p.m. Reading days: MWF from 8 to 10 p.m. Assignments: Tues/Thurs/Sat from 8 to 10 p.m. Keep yourself motivated. Work on online courses every day and share your study schedule with your support network. Create easily visible reminders of your academic and career goals. Develop a support network to hold you accountable. Reward yourself for getting the job done. Practice self-discipline. Review and study course syllabi and clear up any vague information early on or at the start of the semester. Share study and work schedule with friends, loved ones or your support network. Choose ideal study areas, free from distractions. Communicate Your Needs. Be honest about any unfamiliarity with technology, tools or directions. Develop a peer support group with other online students. Seek resources to help develop your technology, study or time management skills. Ask questions of your peers and instructors right away if you are confused or need help. Stay in regular contact with your instructor, classmates and institution. Interact with your classmates as much as possible. Check SouthArk , course discussion and course announcements frequently. Student Best Practices, Last Updated: April 29, 2015 Page 4

5 Work on reading and writing skills. You will be required to read and write a great deal in an online course. You must be comfortable reading electronic documents or large paragraphs of text on the computer. You should have good typing skills to succeed in an online, hybrid or blended course. Practice good netiquette or online communication. Avoid writing messages and discussion posts in ALL CAPS as it can give the impression you are shouting. Avoid personal attacks, otherwise known as "flaming." If you read a message that you do not like, do not respond right away and discuss with your instructor on how to resolve the situation. If you disagree with a fellow student, describe your perspective clearly and politely rather than primarily criticizing his or her comments. Avoid any personal criticism or potentially offensive language. Avoid using acronyms or text chat. Practice persistence. Push through the challenges and frustrations. Develop the ability to tolerate technical problems or software glitches. Adhere to your study schedule. Protecting your work. Keep a copy of work submitted in case of technology glitches. Save your computer work on a regular basis. Follow an instructor s directions exactly when submitting online assignments. Student Best Practices, Last Updated: April 29, 2015 Page 5
