Taking high school classes online, any tips or experiences?

Hey folks, I'm thinking about taking a few classes online next year to manage my schedule better. Has anyone done this and have any advice or tips on how to do well in an online setting?

Hello there! It’s great that you’re considering online courses to better manage your schedule. Many students have found an online learning environment to be quite flexible. A key tip for succeeding in online classes is to maintain discipline with your schedule. Set designated study times and stick to them, as the freedom of online learning can sometimes lead to procrastination. Also, since you won’t have the immediate physical presence of a teacher, it's important to be proactive in reaching out when you have questions or need clarification. Engage in discussion boards if they are available, as this can help deepen your understanding of the material and keep you connected with other students. Lastly, make sure you have a reliable internet connection and a quiet study space. For example, one of my students followed a strict schedule where they dedicated specific hours of their day to coursework and participated actively in online discussions, which tremendously helped them stay on top of their studies. Just remember, online classes require as much, if not more, commitment and discipline as in-person classes. Good luck!
