Online Student Success Orientation 

 The Online Student Success Orientation is a one hour, ELMS-based tutorial that explores interaction strategies and best practices for students enrolled in a course whose content is fully or mostly online.  The free, self-paced, non-credit tutorial walks students through suggested preparations for starting out strong during the first week of class, staying on top of things through the following weeks, and regrouping if they are negatively impacted by pitfalls common to online learning. Students who review all of the content can receive a certificate of completion.

Students can enroll in this free tutorial through the Canvas Catalog using their directory id credentials. Once enrolled in the course, OSSO will appear in a student’s Courses list after logging into ELMS.  Please share this link with your students:

Need Help with a Paper?

Struggling with a Class?

  1. Early action is the key.  Get help early in the semester, at the first sign of a problem.
  2. The first stop is the professor who teaches the class. Every professor has posted office hours when they are available to work one-on-one with students.
  3. If applicable, your teaching assistant for the class can review course material with you.
  4. Make an appointment to speak with your English and/or Arts and Humanities advisors, who can provide you with alternative course options, help you decide whether it's appropriate to withdraw from a course, and point you toward various campus resources.
  5. Take advantage of the numerous resources available to you at the University of Maryland:
