Getting Started...

Welcome TRiO Students! I'm Professor Raychell Harris, your dedicated librarian for computer and digital literacy. What exactly does that mean? Well... I'm available for any school assistance you need regarding computers and digital technologies. Whether you'd like to ask me, or work through the modules yourself, everything you'll need is here.

If you’re like most distance learners, you love the freedom of learning at home. How great is it that you don’t have to come to campus all the time?! Along with the conveniences that online classes afford, come some important responsibilities and best practices. Here are our top ten tips for online students: 

  • Create a quiet, distraction-free study spot
  • Keep a notebook for each class, just as if you were attending a class on campus
  • Know your learning style, and use that knowledge to study effectively for class
  • Use a PC or Mac for online classes – mobile devices are not supported
  • Have a “Plan B” in case something goes awry
  • Keep a thumb drive that you use to save your work
  • Save ALL of your work!
  • Utilize eLearning resources, such as ELO1000 and the Student Support Center
