Taking online classes can be difficult, but not anymore! I’m giving you guys all of my tips and tricks to passing your online courses with flying colors 🙂
How to ace your online classes
In this video, you’ll learn from a student who was able to get A’s across the board on all of her online classes. She shares some of her best tips for staying organized as well as practical tips that help he achieve high grades while getting her online degree.
Print your syllabus
The first tip she recommends is printing out your syllabus and calendar so that you have a visual and physical representation of your tasks and duties. She also recommends reading through your syllabus thoroughly because she’s had many professors quiz her on that material so it’s really handy to have printed out and laying around for immediate access.
Get a physical planner
The second thing she recommends is having a physical planner. She is really into planners and organization and she finds that having a physical planner and not just a calendar on her computer, really helps her keep track. She also has her planner available to her at all times so she can take note, schedule things, and reference deadlines in her planner.
Create time for assignments
Set aside set times to complete homework and assignments. She likes to plan out the time she studies or gets homework done so she can go to starbucks or panera bread on certain days that she knows will not be busy. And she likes to do things in bulk. So she’ll make sure to give herself enough time to do a lot in one sitting. She does this so she can have large chunks of time to relax as well. She likes to do more upfront so she can relax more later.
Check your school email
She also recommends that you check your school email very frequently. It’s funny ho we always check out personal emails but our school emails we tend to forget. School emails usually have assignment updates and deadline updates that are really important to know, so routinely check your school emails.
Set alarms for everything
Setting alarms has been a huge help for her as well. She’ll make sure to set alarms to help her segment her time on schoolwork but also to help her to remember to relax ro take a walk.
“As an online learner you have nobody holding you accountable so it really helps you to set alarms”
Review submitted assignments
Always check up on your assignments and the grades you’re receiving. A lot of times there are computer glitches and your assignments aren’t received correctly. Besides that sometimes your teachers can give you better tips and advice on how to improve your coursework but you’ll never know what those recommendations are if you don’t check up on your assignments.
