Reach Out to Your Facilitators (Lecturers)!

"It’s beneficial for students to reach out and communicate with their instructors early and often" (Thomas Wilson). This  creates an open line of communication that can be used to resolve questions and ensure that you understand the course content.

“If you do not understand something or cannot find something online, email your instructor,” Wilson noted. “Notify your instructor immediately—she or he may be able to make the correction with a click.”

Check if your lecturer has virtual office hours, where you can chat or video conference with him or her to answer questions one-on-one, just like you would in your face to face consultation at his or desk, with a bit more privacy :)
