Get Organized

Being an online student requires strong time management skills, so consider this an opportunity to enhance your organization. As published in the International Journal on ELearning (2017), students who felt a sense of control over their time, reported higher levels of success and satisfaction with their online learning experiences. To gain control over your schedule, try the following suggestions:

  • Create a Semester Calendar that includes personal obligations and important assignment due dates for the last 8 weeks of the semester.
  • Build weekly calendars that have scheduled hours for online work, reading, projects, studying, and personal commitments.
  • Start each day with a checklist and prioritize your activities.
