Tips for Online Learning

Secure a dedicated study "space".

Avoid the temptation to stay in bed all day. Follow your normal daily routine and do your best to find a spot that is quiet, organized, and distraction-free. Ask any family members or housemates to respect your “work mode” and consider turning off your phone and logging off of all social networks when studying.

Create to-do lists and Set time limits. 

Before you start studying estimate how much time each task will take to complete. Create a schedule and try to stick to your time frame. If you find that you cannot concentrate, consider taking a break, wait until you are able to start anew rather than to waste your time trying to focus.

Ask for help when you need it.

Don't hesitate to contact your professor when you are stuck. If you don’t ask for help when necessary, you may end up falling behind, which may lower your self-esteem, as you may not be able to keep up with the online course. By asking your professor to clarify problems, you will also be providing useful feedback to help them evaluate learners' level of understanding of the online material and locate any problems with the course delivery. Keep in mind that if you don't ask for help, your online instructor may never know that something is wrong.
