Success Tips • Communication • Instructor normally prefers public questions be asked on the discussion board so the answer benefits all students and private questions be asked through D2L E-mail • D2L E-mail is a closed system but E-mail can be copied to any external E-mail address • Don’t be afraid to call the instructor’s office if E-mail isn’t sufficient • Students may call the division office in the event they cannot reach the instructor or if the issue is not resolved by the instructor

  25. Success Tips • Ask Fellow Classmates • Many course content and technical questions may be answered by fellow students • Post questions on the discussion board under the appropriate topic with a useful subject line
