Tips for NICENET
• Your Nicenet classroom is a controlled environment.
Please do not give your password or the access code to
anyone else!
• Become familiar with the online classroom as quickly
as possible.
• Log in regularly. If you participate on a regular basis
you will find the online learning experience much more
enjoyable and effective.
• Find the time of day when you work best online. You
can access Nicenet around the clock.
• Print documents that you wish to study in more depth.
• Interact with your teacher. If you’re not sure about
what you need to do, then ask questions and/or ask for
help.
Tips for NICENET
• Find a friend! Just like in the regular classroom,
students who team up with another student or other
students find it easier to succeed.
• Create a schedule for yourself. Although the course
material can be accessed at any time of day, many
students find it best to create a standard schedule that
they keep to.
• Meet the course deadlines! It will be easier to
complete the course material if you meet the deadlines.
Do let your teacher know if you have problems.
• Be open to change. E-learning is still a new field.
Enjoy being an online student – it is a new and exciting
addition to your learning experience!
