As you prepare to take your studies online, we have created some helpful tips to get you started.
1. Do you have the right tools?
Before you begin your online course, make sure you've got everything you might need to make your online study as easy as possible:
- Decent internet connection
- A laptop, computer, smartphone or tablet
- A microphone and a camera
- Prepare your workspace for the day. Get your books, pens and paper ready to go, before your class starts! This will help to prepare you mentally for the classes ahead.
2. Do you know who to ask for help?
There are plenty of support services to help you through your online study period. Make sure you know who to ask before you get started:
Technical support: Your first step is to check the ZOOM tutorial for help and assistance. If you still have problems, please contact your teacher, your trainer or Student Services for support.
Student Services are available to all students via email and phone. It is also possible to arrange an online meeting with a member of the team if needed: https://www.greenwichcollege.edu.au/your-choices/meet-a-course-advisor

3. Be ready to speak, interact and engage!
The more you engage and talk with your classmates and teachers the more you will enjoy and benefit from the class. It can feel awkward speaking and participating online at first, but once you conquer your initial nerves you will ease into your learning experience.
