"Read-Only Participants: A Case for Student Communication in Online Classes In order to take online classes you would have to like communicating with others and being able to change your schedule. You have to build a relationship and your classmates. One benefit to taking online classes is that you will be able to communicate with people online that can be totally opposite from you. The authors wanted to know how well students attitude affect he/she working together, so they would be successful. When I’m working someone else I remain with a positive attitude, regardless if I don’t agree with something, we discuss what we both have in a calm manner and then come up with a sensible answer. Being able to work with someone keeps my mind going. When I work with someone we compete, just for fun, and make sure that the both of us understand our job/work at the end of the day. The authors are giving good advice, mainly expressing that participation, getting work done on time, response to your classmates post, is a great way to start your way to being successful in getting your master’s. At first, I thought online classes weren’t going to be for me, but now I buckled down, and start to focus on my work. My favorite quote, “Failure is not an option.” thought online classes weren’t going to be for me, but now I buckled down, and start to focus on my work. My favorite quote, “Failure is not an option.” I MUST SUCCEED!
