During the pandemic, you may have questions about how to adjust your learning and studying approaches to a completely online environment. We have included some suggestions and resources for getting started with online learning.
You can find additional strategies for learning online on these pages:
Prepare your study space by having all your materials (pens, papers, textbooks, etc.) easily accessible. Make sure you have your charger handy and you are situated close to a power outlet. Sitting at a desk or table instead of on your couch or bed (if possible) will help you stay focused.
Prepare your mind for studying online the same way you would for face-to-face classes. Dress the same way you would for an in-person class, put away your cell phone, turn off all notifications on your computer, and take a few mindful moments before you begin your classwork to get ready to focus.
This video includes helpful strategies for setting up a productive space for studying.
