Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) December 19, 2005 -–
Drexel University, Philadelphia’s technological university, recently launched the fourth installment of its “Drexel e-Learning Minute” podcast series, which was created in August to address the unique issues and circumstances that new online students encounter and to provide prospective online learners with the tools needed for success.
The fourth issue in the series is titled Strategies for Succeeding in an Online College Course and is hosted by Dr. Kenneth Hartman, Academic Director of Drexel e-Learning. In this podcast, Hartman provides first-time online learners with helpful tips to ensure a successful online experience. This podcast covers such topics as getting to know your instructor, establishing expectations with family and friends, netiquette, time management and much more.
“In our previous podcasts we touched on such topics as what to expect in an online class, how to prepare technically for online learning and how to select the right online program and college,” said Hartman. “This podcast is focused on helping students who are preparing to actually start their first online college course and identifies the similarities and differences between traditional and online higher education. This is an important segment of our podcast series because it helps students develop a strategic plan for success and addresses issues that new online learners may not anticipate.”
The fourth issue of the four-part e-Learning Minute series is now available online at http://www.drexel.com/podcast. For additional online learning resources, please visit http://www.drexel.com/prospective.
