Students do not always know where to go when they have coursework questions. Coursework questions can include questions about the course, questions about the work, and questions about a particular assignment. There are many resources that students can take advantage of to find answers to their coursework questions.
One of the most obvious places to get an answer to a coursework question is the course instructor. Yet, many learners will not question an instructor either for fear of looking ignorant, or because the instructor appears less than friendly. The fact is that many instructors, even the curmudgeonliest ones, welcome questions from pupils. Day after day, college instructors stand in front of what appear to be completely disinterested groups of post-adolescents. Many instructors are frustrated by the lack of input from their pupils. And, many learners are pleasantly surprised at the positive reactions they receive from what appears to be an unwelcoming instructor. Instructors often come to life when students bother to ask questions and display an interest in the course. After all, instructors are there to instruct. They realize that students learn at different rates and are, for the most part, prepared to put some extra effort into students who earnestly need help.
Another place to get a coursework question answered is the internet. Although a student should never consider the internet a credible research tool, it does serve as a good starting point to get answers to coursework questions. For instance, if a student performs a search for a particular question, term, or item, and receives two different answers, that student can begin to research each answer until he or she finds credible answers.
One much-maligned internet tool is Wikipedia. There is no doubt that Wikipedia should never be used as a credible reference. However, it is a good place to begin research on a topic which a student knows little about. Wikipedia does require that its entries be referenced. And, although many entries are not referenced properly, the references that are located at the end of the Wikipedia entry might provide credible reference material. It is the entries at the end of the Wikipedia entry that student's should be interested in, not necessarily the entry itself.
Another coursework question resource is other pupils. Some students miss a class where the instructor might relate important information to the class and some students might be unfamiliar with the course format or have trouble catching on to the course material. Students should always take advantage of their own peers for coursework question answers.
