Depending on the type of online courses and specific course requirements, students might need several different materials for online learning. The most obvious material is a functional, up-to-date computer with wireless internet, whereas other optional materials include software, textbooks and school supplies.
Most students benefit from creating an environment solely dedicated to their online studies. This environment should mimic a serious work atmosphere, and should therefore consist of a desk, chair, organizer, computer, and bookshelves among other things.
Suggested school supplies include notebooks, organizers, calendars, pens and pencils, binders, stapler, and an all-in-one printer/scanner/copier/faxer.
