If you are having internet connectivity issues, there are lots of places in Conway where you can get a good connection from a parking lot. The campus of CBC has good internet, and UCA has also loosened the restrictions on their internet access, meaning anyone can access right now. If you are not in Conway anymore, free internet is probably available from the parking lots around your local library, some local restaurants, a local college, or maybe some churches.
The City of Conway has greatly improved their internet access. Check out the following places if you need a better connection!

If you are new to remote learning, here are some helpful tips to get you started.
Technology and Materials
- Have access to an Internet connection and a computer or tablet. The library has iPad minis Samsung TabA tablets available for checkout.
- Have current textbooks and other materials required for classes. Check your syllabi if you are unsure of what is required.
- Ensure you have access to Canvas and your CBC email. These can be accessed through My CBC Portal. If you need help with Canvas, check out the resources found on the left side of this page.
Studying and Organizing
- Find a place to devote to studying. Look for an area that is well-lit and free of distractions. If this place is at your home, consider making a sign for your door that indicates you are studying or taking a test.
- Stay organized. Planning and organizing your assignments for each class will reduce stress and when multiple assignments and projects are due.
- Manage your time wisely. Typically, a 3-credit course should take approximately three hours of class time per week plus an additional six hours of study time per week. In other words, you should be dedicating about nine hours per week to each course.
Check your Canvas, CBC email, and Syllabi frequently. Know what is expected from each of your instructors and communicate with them if you have questions.
