Myth #3

I can complete all of my work for a module in a single online session.

In the vast majority of online courses, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Most online courses require students to log on multiple times per week to participate in discussions, check course mail and announcements, and complete online activities. Additionally, students may be required to complete a portion of their work offline and then submit it online.  There may be different due dates for different assignments, discussions and quizzes, and the successful online student learns early on that regularly logging in to the course is one of the keys to doing well.
