Student Tips Blog


Hi everyone!

My name is Justine Egan and I am a graduate student in Psychology here at URI. I also work in Online Education. If you are reading this blog, then you likely either want to learn more about online classes in general or about how to succeed in an online course. I am here to help! In addition to being a grad student, I was also an undergrad here, so I have taken many URI courses through Sakai, URI’s classroom management system (i.e. where online courses typically take place). I have experience using the platform as both a student and as an instructor.

Each week, I will offer tips that are geared to improve your experience as an online student and help you succeed in your course(s).

I hope you find this blog helpful. Below is the full list of blog posts, with a new post being added weekly!

If you have any questions or think of any subjects you’d like me to address in future posts, please feel free to suggest post topics by e-mailing me at
