In an online course, managing your time is of the utmost importance. But sometimes it can be easy to fall behind on your work.
To get back on track, first contact the instructor to let them know of the situation. The instructor is the one who controls the grades and they can help you get back to where you need to be.
You can also reach out to other students in the class. Group discussion is a valuable tool in determining where you fall among others.
