Have a consistent study space free from distractions. You may need to reorganize your home or office space but make sure to plan on the best learning environment for yourself.

Your classmates could be a great sounding board for new ideas and can provide valuable advice and mentorship.
Your active participation in the online discussions is essential for the success of the course. Visit your course pages daily to provide feedback to the class and check for announcements.
Take time to organize your own schedule. Add all the important due dates to your own calendar on your phone or your e-mail agent. While online learning does not have a face-to-face component, it still requires you to stay on top of the deadlines. Don’t fall behind!
Typically, courses will have their own routine. Take time to learn what the requirements are for each course. Create and clearly designate folders on your computer, so the materials for each course and module may be easily found.
Connect with them via e-mail, telephone, and zoom.

After landing, and making it through security at Jomo Kenyatta Airport I quickly found my ride to what would be my home for the next ten months. Driving down the highway we turned into Ongata Rongai, a little town outside of Nairobi, Kenya. I was met with new smells, hardships, faces, and the phrase muzungu, which means white person in Swahili. I had arrived! This would be my first night in Africa, a culmination of jet lag, amazing stars, new friends, culture, and surprises. What did God have in store for me this year?
Every week at Kids ROCK* is a surprise. We never know if we’ll be inundated with volunteers or kids- the two groups are rarely ever equal. On this particular week I come to lend an extra hand to my coordinator. We’d had some, shall we say, “overly energetic” kids attending and they have been challenging to handle. The afternoon starts off with a curious version of baseball; the rules quickly fall by the wayside. Up next is a confusing game of capture the flag. Next, freeze tag! This one was a winner!
La Escuelita: A Family Resource Center of Loma Linda University offers programs especially for families in the San Bernardino area. In the last 10 years La Escuelita has become something cherished by the community. We have seen many kids grow up in the program. Although sometimes one cannot see the impact it makes in a day in a family, we have been amazed at seeing the impact over a decade through our Community Kids Connection (CKC) Tutoring and CKC Music classes.
