Student Success in Online Learning

Welcome to Online Learning and to American Sentinel. Whether new to online learning or an old hand, this guide is for you.

The library is known to house journals and books that support your academic studies. 

The librarians are often asked about other things, such as:

  • What is plagiarism?
  • How do I know this website is credible?
  • What is proper online etiquette?
  • How do I access the library content from my phone? 
  • How do I conduct a videoconference call? 

You get the idea.

This guide provides both basic information on a range of these topics and also directs you to other places at American Sentinel that can help you with your query.

  • The best advice the librarians can give to online learners is to explore, explore, explore
  • You cannot break it by clicking on a link and you never know what you will find.
  • Remember that on every page in the library, there are links at the foot of the page to help you navigate through the content. 

Happy hunting!
