Myth #7

As long as I log in, I am considered as “attending” for that day in my online course.

Simply logging in typically does not count as attendance in an online class. Many instructors use participation in discussion, submission of an assignment or quiz, or other meaningful content-related contributions on the part of the student to measure attendance. It is important to read the course information provided by your instructor to find out what the attendance requirements are for your particular course and ask if you are unsure.
