Lesson 7: Participate Actively in Your Class

The key to succeeding within your class is to actively participate in it. The less engaged you are with the content of the class, with the instructor, or with the other students, the less chance you have at being successful.

Therefore, if you have questions about anything in class, ask them. Your discussion forums are there to discuss the weekly material as well as any questions you might have with the material. Don’t be afraid to ask questions in the forum, chances are some of your fellow students have the same or similar question. Besides it can also contribute to interesting discussion. If your question is more of a personal nature related to your progress in the course, please email those questions directly to your instructor.

Instructors always welcome questions from students. In the opening module titled Course Description, you will see the various ways in which you can contact your instructor.
