Update Your Contact Information
Before you start your online course, you should make sure that you have all the necessary information and course materials and that your computer meets the minimum requirements.
Do you meet the course prerequisites?
Does your computer meet the minimum requirements for taking an online course?
You should have your Internet provider’s telephone number and technical support available for your classes.
When you go to the Canvas login, Canvas will run a System Check. You should have all green checks.
For additional information, such as your course log-on and password, you will need to contact your instructor.
Have you registered for the online course you wish to take?
Are you checking your Hawkeye email regularly? All information will be sent to you via your Hawkeye email including any additional information your instructor wishes to send for you to prepare for your online course. It is important to regularly check your Hawkeye email before your online class starts and during the semester.
Purchase your textbooks. Some courses may require an access code to get into the course. The access code will be available in the course textbook. Your instructor will provide information about using this access code.
If you live near Waterloo, stop by main campus to get your Hawkeye Card student ID, your free parking pass, and free Student Planner. You will need your Hawkeye Card student ID to check out physical materials from the Library for assignments and for other services that are available to students.
Attend the orientation for your course, if required.
Make a plan on how you will manage your time. Good time-management skills and the ability to establish and follow priorities are two very important skills for success.
A common formula to figure out how much time you should schedule to spend on your course, both on-campus and distance learning courses is the same:
course credits x 3 = A course credits + A = the number of hours per week you should schedule to work on your course.
For example, if you are taking a three credit course your calculation would look like this:
3 course credits x 3 = 9 (A) 3 course credits + 9 (A) = 12 hours
You should plan to spend 12 hours a week working on your online course.
