How to Manage your Online Classes

Create a workspace for yourself

  • Find a place where you feel your most productive
  • Decorate this space entirely to your liking so you enjoy being in it

Manage your time (best for online classes that don’t have a set schedule)

  • Dedicate a certain time of day to each class
  • Consider what time of day you are most productive, plan to get attention-demanding work done in this time
  • Ensure you schedule breaks/downtime

Break down tasks

  • Use phone apps to manage homework/projects
    • Egenda, myHomework, to-do, Trello

Take periodic breaks, use them wisely

  • Breaks are a great time/way to practice self-care
  • This can be in the form of exercising, having a snack, watching Netflix/YouTube, seeing a friend, or anything that takes your mind off schoolwork

Ensure other personal needs are being met

  • Schedule time into your day to meet your essential needs
    • This includes eating, exercising, fulfilling social needs

Get in contact with your instructor

  • Remember that your instructors are also dealing with switching to online
  • Ask for help when you need it, be open with your instructor if you are having a hard time adjusting to the online format
    • This will likely be beneficial feedback for them as they work to design their class to fit well with student needs
