Taking an online class can be different than a traditional face-to-face class. Time management, computer requirements, and online communication are all important considerations. 
To help you prepare for online learning, College of the Canyons offers a FREE, self-paced online course called “Quest for Online Success”. This self-paced course is hosted in Canvas, but it is NOT your academic course. Use this supplementary tool to aid in your success!​​

What to expect in the Quest Course? 

Quest for Online Success offers two learning paths - one for students who are new to online learning, and other for experienced online students. Each path will provide you with an opportunity to understand the challenges of this learning environment and develop the skills required to be successful in an online course.    

Quest begins with a self-assessment called “Smarter Measures”, which will help you to identify your online learning strengths and areas for improvement. It will then direct you to the specific interactive modules that can help you improve and optimize your online learning strengths.
