Student Success Resources

Setting expectations and preparing students to make the best possible use of online learning technology is an important best practice. -Public Policy Institute of California (PPIC) Report, 2015
The Online Education Initiative (OEI) recognizes that increasing student success involves many aspects of student support beyond that provided by the classroom instructor. Many students are unaware when they register for an online course that the environment requires a skill set that is different from what is needed for the traditional classroom experience. Students must not only be self-directed learners, but also manage their time well and navigate a technology-rich environment that goes beyond social media and smartphones.

In addition to the resources below, the OEI is working on more ways to assist colleges in directly supporting students, including online counselor support, online proctoring technology, library services and more.

Currently available student success resources include:


Online Learner Readiness
