What is an Online Student Ally?

‚ÄčThe Online Student Allies are CMU students, just like yourself, who have been trained and have been successful in completing online courses. We are an extra tool for students to utilize when they are struggling in their online courses. We are a separate entity from your course instructor, therefore questions that involve course content, grades and tutoring questions should be directed toward your professor. Typically, we assist students with such items as: 

  • time management skills 
  • study tactics 
  • finding additional resources for courses 
  • creating a course calendar to help you prepare for upcoming assignment due dates and manage priorities
  • any other concerns or needs you may have

Visit Online Ally Resources for helpful eLearning tips, best practices and resources. We would be more than happy to help you with any concerns or questions you may have throughout your online course. Please do not hesitate to send us an email or give us a call! The Online Ally services can be reached via email at
