We’re in this together! Here are some tips to stay motivated while you attend your face-to-face courses in an online learning environment.
Create a reasonable study schedule and stick to it. Look at your commitments at the onset of each week and determine your obligations for coursework/study time, work, and family for that week. Block off time to meet each requirement and schedule this time as appointments on your calendar, and then keep your appointments. Having a consistent workspace is a good idea, too.
Stick to a Routine
Keeping a regular routine can help you stay on track and take care of your mental, emotional and physical health. Setting up some structure for your day can help relieve some stress or tension that comes with times of uncertainty.
You do it when you're on campus together, so why not do it virtually too? Apps and tools like Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, Snapchat, and Duo are all apps that you can use to connect with your friends and classmates. Make it a habit to reach out to each other or form a virtual study group. Studying in pairs or as a group can help with accountability, support, and community.
