Yes, at this web site there are some good ideas about taking online classes. http://academic.pg.cc.md.us/~gprobst/can%20you%20succeed%20in%20an%20online%2 0classes.htm also here is some ideas about study time for students http://academic.pg.cc.md.us/~gprobst/do_i_have_enough_time_to_study.htm A lot of time students don't realize how much time is needed to do an online course so they fall behind and can never seem to catch up. Good luck with this...

There's tons of stuff about designing classes, pedagogy, infrastructure, etc. etc.etc., but not much from the student end. Of course such students need to have a certain level of computer skills; be able to read and write reasonable well; manage time; and have the self-discipline to meet deadlines. But what's out there that says this formally? I am exploring other avenues and am aware of sites such as Lucy MacDonald's Thanks for any leads, on list or privately. Liz -- Elizabeth B.
