Schedule specific times in your day to dedicate to studying or participating in your online class.
  • Consider using the "Do Not Disturb" function on your devices (Apple iOS devices, Android devices) or a lockdown browser on your computer when you are trying to manage distraction.
  • Find a space that is comfortable and allows you to focus. This can be your home base for coursework. Take a look at the elements of a productive study space and physical strategies to support your learning.
  • Discuss work and class schedules and set boundaries with family or roommates. Proactively addressing these issues and even posting them in writing can help manage frustrations.
  • Set a schedule for yourself. A schedule can help provide structure and keep you motivated. Include time for exercise and self-care.
