My Online Readiness Experience
You may be a savvy smart-phone, tablet, or social media user, but are you equipped with the skills necessary to be a successful online student? The Office of Online Learning and Technology offers My Online Readiness Experience (M.O.R.E.), a series of interactive multimedia tutorials and resources designed to address the real challenges new and experienced online students will encounter.
What is My Online Readiness Experience?
As a student at Cuyahoga Community College, you have the opportunity to complete My Online Readiness Experience (M.O.R.E.). The purpose of My Online Readiness Experience is to prepare you to succeed in the classroom and in Tri-C's online learning environment. My Online Readiness Experience helps you determine how well you use study skills, navigate technology, and practice academic communication skills.
M.O.R.E. is available through Blackboard Learn to students once accepted to the College. M.O.R.E. should take 45 minutes to an hour and includes three graded sections: Technology, Study Skills, and Communication Skills. If you do not successfully complete the Technology module on your first attempt, you will also need to complete the Technology Review section. M.O.R.E. will also introduce you to several Tri-C resources to support your success as a Tri-C student. (Do not use the Blackboard Mobile App to take M.O.R.E.!)
Whether your courses are face-to-face, blended, or online, the skills covered in My Online Readiness Experience are key to your success!
Among the abilities students should possess are:
- Send e-mail
- Attach, create, modify, and save electronic documents
- Upload/download files
- Navigate the Internet using any web browser
- Understand and modify browser settings relating to security, pop-ups, and firewall settings
- Create personal video presentations
- Strong organizational skills
- Disciplined time management
Transition from OLSA
In August the OLSA was updated and re-branded as My Online Readiness Experience (M.O.R.E.). Don't worry, if you have already completed the OLSA you will not have to complete M.O.R.E.! The process for requesting to take or add M.O.R.E. to your course is the same as it was for the OLSA. If you have any questions regarding the change you can e-mail Kari Vara at email@example.com.
