Time Management Tools
It may be helpful to schedule time to work on your online course, as if it were a face-to-face course meeting at regular times. Schedule hour blocks using this Daily Schedule Excel Template or your Outlook Calendar associated with your email account so you can concentrate on your course activities.
Distance Education Guidelines
Although online courses can be just as rigorous and beneficial as face-to-face classes, there are also additional concerns related to time, workload, academic integrity, online etiquette, and personal responsibilities. Please review the Indiana State Distance Education Guidelines established for students and faculty to better prepare yourself for the demands of online learning.
Distance Education Newsletters
If you feel you have exhausted your options or just need guidance, support, a little encouragement, or a friendly voice, call us at (812) 237-2288 or send us an email.
We encourage you to use our live chat if you would like to talk directly to a member of the Admissions staff. We regret that we are unavailable during off-hours, but will respond to any messages or inquiries you send.
Distance Education Students Residing Outside of Indiana: Each of the states has its own approval processes for out-of-state institutions offering distance education. While Indiana State University endeavors to offer all of its programs to as wide an audience as possible, all ISU distance education programs may not be available in all states. Currently, distance programs are not offered in the states of Arkansas and Massachusetts. To check the status of programs available in a particular state, visit program availability.
