People are communal learners, which explains why classmates and study groups provide such great learning supports. As an online student, you can lean on your cohorts to stay motivated, to feel more involved, and to relieve feelings of frustration. So what is a cohort?

Some college programs emphasize the partnership among cohorts by focusing on group work and team projects. Other schools provide student boards that allow cohorts to chat, debate, or collaborate.
