These are some tips about about our online programs and also some recommendations for success.
It requires work
Though the pace of Swamp School courses can be intense, more than 1,000 students have made it through. You can, too. Take each course one day at a time, break large projects down into small tasks and seek support when you need it.
Once you log-in you will see the course syllabus. Read it carefully as it will help guide you through your coursework. Each week is listed with details of what is expected to be submitted that week.
A busy schedule
Effective time management will help you submit assignments on time. Remember, you may lose points for submitting work after the due date. Please consult your instructor’s policies for details.
Plenty of coursework
Stay on top of course readings and presentations, which are usually available electronically. Consider completing any reading or lecture assignments by Wednesday of each week. Finding a personal workspace that allows you to study and read best may help.
Your instructors will be involved in class discussions five days each week (M-F) and will provide feedback on your assignments. Remember, different faculty members sometimes have different policies regarding course requirements like discussions.
Specific software requirements
A standard web browser is all that is required to participate in our courses. However, you may need to update your browser plug-ins like Adobe Flash and Java for some of the course features to work. Ensure you have access to these programs.
If you’re unsure about the requirements for a course in which you’re enrolled, don’t hesitate to ask your instructor for clarification.
