Another step towards satisfaction is to read the lesson multiple times. Second and third readings helps one catch what was missed in the previous readings. Each further reading allows the student to read for different ideas. Getting something different from each reading helps widen the student’s understanding of the subject matter and better prepares one for answering the questions during homework.
Participation plays a large role in the outcome of an online class. Since you are not physically present for the class, the teacher needs some way of evaluating your development. If there is a forum connected with the class, make sure to leave an insightful comment in the discussion. This shows that you have read the assignment. Read your fellow classmates’ comments also and if at all possible reply to their threads. When students discuss ideas on other participants’ comments, that shows the teacher that this student is open to other ideas and is committed to learning.
Impressing the teacher means that the student will have to prepare all homework ahead of time, which will require penciling in the time to read the lesson. Next the student would have to read the assignment several times to get a wider scope of the lesson. Finally, active participation is the key to accomplishment in an online class.
