We’re Here to Help
We recommend the following strategies to ensure you will be successful in your online courses:
- Classes are taught fully online; make sure you have a reliable internet connection and a computer. Tyler students are eligible for free Microsoft Office 365 and discounts on other software that may be useful for your studies.
- Make time for your coursework. Depending on the class, you can expect to spend 8-10 hours per week per class doing your assignments.
- Order any needed books and supplies well in advance to make sure they arrive before your course start date. Not having your course materials in time can put you behind and it can be tough to catch up.
- Familiarize yourself with Canvas, Tyler’s online learning platform, and review the syllabus and assignment due dates. If you need Canvas technical support, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Contact your instructor early and often with any questions about the course or the material.
- Tyler offers tutoring through our Academic Resource Center; our expert tutors are available online through Zoom.
Unsure if online learning is a good fit for you? Try it out through our online test drive course. The course covers the skills required to be successful as an online learner and includes an introduction to basic Canvas functions, as well, and gives students an opportunity to practice with some of them.
