1. Have a Designated Workspace
It is important to do all work in one place. That applies even to online school. A learning environment dedicated to education will set you up for success. The more you work in this area, the more your brain will associate it with accomplishing work and reaching goals. It doesn’t matter whether you have it on your back porch, in your kitchen, in your living space, or even in your closet (if that’s what you want), you need to decide which environment works best for you. A location that offers an internet connection is a good choice.
Top 3 Things to Do
  1. The books, notes, or appropriate browser tabs that you'll need for class.
  2. If your family is constantly clattering about, headphones or earbuds are a good option.
  3. Get a charger for your device. Nothing is more embarrassing than asking the teacher a question and then having your tech die half way through.
2. Get Organized, and stay organized.
Once you have established a designated workspace, it's now time to get organized. It looks easy enough, pens here, papers there and a fun flower pot at the corner. But, the real beast is when you have three essays, an assignment and notes to complete the lecture on the bunny's history by the end of the week. You find yourself suddenly disorganized and unable to motivate yourself to put your workspace right back together.
Begin by making a list of folders. Once you're done, organize the folders and create folders for your notes and homework. But don't abandon this folder. Use it daily, consistently, purposefully, and regularly. Once you have a foundation in place, don’t be afraid to change it or adapt it to meet your needs. This will be your lifeline, and you won't be able to work without it.
Make sure you have backups in case there are any deletions or accidental crashes.
3. Eliminate distractions
Make sure you set aside a certain amount of time each morning for school work. Also, try to keep your mind clear of distractions. If you're enrolled in an Online Course, it is important to have a routine. Working on history notes for 2 hours after lunch on Mondays is a good practice. It will be easy to maintain if it becomes a routine. See tip 1 for where to put yourself.
You should have a designated place to study that is completely free of outside noises and distractions. Turn off the TV. You can also set Do Not Disturb to prevent you from receiving notifications on social media while you cram for the chemistry final. While background music may help you relax, it is best to not make it too loud. I find that LoFi and Classical are the best music to help me get the work done.
4. Pay Attention
It's so straightforward, it might actually work! While online classes are easy to forget, you can still thrive and stay on top of your studies. You should take notes while the teacher is speaking. Take only the important points and write down what you can remember. Keep track of the time and place them on your notes, especially if it is recorded. You will need to keep notes. It will help to stay focused and remember the differences between a bullfrog (or a toad) in class.
If you intend to store your notes online, make sure you know how to use the "find" command, ctrl+f. This can also be used in virtually all programs that allow you to search for phrases or words. This will help you to link keywords with relevant information.
5. Take Responsibility
Anyone who has attempted an online course before will understand how frustrating it can be to stay organized. It is important to establish due dates and check in every week. This isn't a reason to be late with your work. Instead, create deadlines that are both manageable for you and fit within the timeframes of your teachers.
If you have problems keeping track, contact your teacher. Let them know that you are committed to completing their assignments. Also, let them know that you might have a late work deadline. While you might not be exempted form late penalties for your work, you will let your teacher know you still care about the class, regardless if it is virtual.
6. Take Breaks
Short breaks are a great way to increase productivity. Sometimes we can get lost in our studies and feel a bit sluggish. A short break every five to ten seconds can help ease the stress on the brain.
You can take these breaks and not think about your work. Instead, you can give your brain a rest. Take a break, stretch your legs and move your body. You can also grab a snack or drink water. If the alarm has been sounding while you were studying check your phone. Make sure you turn off all notifications to avoid it happening again.
7. Treat Yourself
Celebrate getting an A on the paper. Have a great time celebrating a class A. It is important that you remember that life can be lived, even through virtual classes, pandemics, and high school life's stresses. Spend time with those you love and do the things that bring you joy. If you do not spend your time learning, doing homework, and studying, you will soon burn out.
Remind yourself that school will end one day. You are going to be amazing when it does. You have a lot to look forward to in your life.
8. Positive Thinking
This is a difficult time for all of us, and we couldn’t plan for it in advance. It is important to smile, laugh and find joy in your work. Although it may not be the job you are looking for, it is what will allow you to grow as an individual and student.
