Student Readiness for eLearning: Distance Education for Authentic Learning

Are you ready for eLearning?  
Students should determine if they are ready to succeed in a hybrid or online course. 

Take these quick self-assessments: The DEAL Readiness Self Assessment Tool will help you determine if you have the technology access, skills, and self-motivation to succeed in an online or hybrid course. The Online Readiness Assessment shared with us from Penn State University will you see whether your characteristics would help you be a successful online learner.  The Are You Ready for Online Learning? from the Association for Library Collections & Technical Services can help you determine if online learning is a good fit for you.
 The Skills for Effective Online Learning Self Assessment can help you determine if you have the skills you need to be an online learner.

DEAL courses use Canvas to deliver course content, as a communication and collaboration platform and for authentic assessments, including assignments, discussions, projects, portfolios, quizzes, and tests.  DEAL instructors may also choose to use VoiceThread, Proctorio Automated Test Proctoring, the Unicheck plagiarism detector application, and many other applications and tools that fully integrate with our Canvas LMS.
