Important ways to be on point with online Classes

North Iowa Area Community College, Mason City, Iowa

Online Classes are very good for some people, Even myself. You have a schedule for each class throughout the week. Pick days and hours for each class and stick with it. You have to make sure you have no distractions. Also write notes while reading especially when you know is a lot of material on the chapters that are put in a important focus from your teachers. Don't wait until the last minute to turn your assignments in. Also stay in touch with your emails and if you don't understand a work assignment always email your instructor.

Hello everyone!
Treva Graves, College Freshman
UMA, Tampa

I start off always wanting to be very organized in my studies, and have everything I need at my fingertips, but somehow I always forget something, if it is no more than just a pencil. Now I'm learning to do things ahead of time and I find it a lot more fulfilling than scrambling to rush for this and that.

These tips help a lot with organization. Learn to turn your work in ahead of time so you won't have to rush and make mistakes. Utilize your time well spent, then you will have room for the leisure moments.

Andrea Deaton, College Freshman
UMA, Clearwater, FL

Im usually an organized person when it comes to work and school. Color coding definately helps! This is my first time taking online courses and Im already finding this to be extremely helpful.

Today was my first day. I don't have a printer to print off weekly syllabuses my school refers to as "roadmaps" so I figured out I'd screen shot the roadmaps on my phone and then "edit" and check off what I've completed thus far.

Your cellphone can be used for more than just reminders. It is definitely looking like it will be my " best friend" through out this new journey. Hopefully this hint helps someone else too!

I believe color coding is a great way to find subjects you need to be working on, or to go back on. I also believe this helps out a lot in staying organized.
