Virtual classes became a new thing for many students, during the time of Covid 19, and it is now part of the learners experience. This experience taught the student how to use the internet to help them study. The internet has a lot of helpful information, so here are some study tips to help the online learners in their navigation.
Online learning requires some concentrated effort on your part – and that is not bad at all- to remain focused on the task. Do not side line into unrelated sites or get distracted with social media and online games sites. Now you need to utilize time management skills, self-discipline, and self-motivation. Here are some study tips suggestions for you, students, to do during this time to make sure you complete your readings, exercises, and activities on time.
Study Tip #1: Yes, it is not easy!
Keeping a consistent study schedule is not easy. There is always some kind of interruption or disturbance. However, you still have to get the time to commit to studying, for it is during this time you learn to master the text at hand. Choose times you know when you will least likely be interrupted during your study, let everyone know that this is your study time and and so they would not disturb you. Do this in a consistent basis each day.
Study Tip #2: Develop Your Skill
Yes, you may have to learn: how to use this site or other sites with practice worksheet, how to download documents, the keyboard properly (we have a keyboarding course here), and leave comments. All is necessary to help you make full use of the information you have.
Study Tip #3: Make Sure You Have A Good Connection
Glitches and slow browsing interferes with your study time. Make sure you do not have too much pages up and too much programmes working in the background. Make sure your passwords are saved so you are not locked out of the site.
Study Tip #4: Take brief Notes
You still have to take notes and spend time reviewing the notes. This will help you get better scores. Make sure your notes are brief and on point. Do not write notes that ramble on and on about a top. Make sure your notes are legible as well. If you enjoy drawing, you can include drawing with your notetaking.
Study Tip #5: Study Space
Have a dedicate space to do your studies. Make sure this space is located in a quiet, well organized, distraction-free space. This space should be available at any time as well. This space should support your schedule. Make sure you let everyone, friends and relatives, know when you need your quiet time for your studying.
Study Tip #6: Have a Schedule
You have to set your learning goals for the week. You have to set out if you will study for 4 hours a day and you should stick to that schedule. Layout the time you would begin and end. Start with the most difficult task first, as this will help you see how practical your schedule is. As assignment is posted, do them. Do not wait until later or when it is due.
Study Tip #7: Organize Your Task on a Calendar
Once you have viewed your task for the week, organize the task on a calendar. Stick to it! All your assignment and activities will be done on time. Keep to the time limits you already set and keep track of all the work you have done. Doing this will help you develop your self-discipline.
Study Tip #8: Take A Break
There is no need to be studying every minute, every waking hour. We don’t expect that. Indulge in a mild physical activities and a change of scenery. Go enjoy a snack, have your lunch on time.
Study Tip #9: Concentration
Finally, stick to your plan. Do not procrastinate. Keep in touch with your teacher to help you stay on task and develop a consistent study routine. If you have problems with a lesson, communicate this to your teacher. Your teacher will then know how best to help you and other students experiencing the same problem. If you have problems concentrating, we have some links below to help you with that.
