What’s Your Game Plan?

So, you’ve made the decision to take classes this semester! Whether you’ll be on campus or not, it’s important to think about what strategies you can use to make the most of your online experience. By now, you may be aware that Zoom fatigue is a real thing. You might also agree that it can be challenging to hold yourself accountable for completing goals and deliverables even if online coursework allows for flexibility.

Even considering these challenges, you may have experienced the long-term benefit of having some sort of structure for your time. Everything you’ve noticed this summer can be useful to you moving forward! 

As you prepare for this upcoming semester, consider the following questions: 

  • How can you create a flexible schedule that keeps you, your courses, and your other responsibilities in perspective?
  • What does it mean to participate actively in a virtual space? 
  • How will you reduce and manage potential distractions? 
  • Is there anything you can do to reduce screen fatigue?

We have some possible answers for you in the handout linked below! Check out our “Quick Tips for Online Learning” and do what works for you!

This table provides 20 tips for learning online. The tips fall under creating a flexible schedule, participating actively, managing distractions, and studying and working off the screen.

Lastly, look out for our signature workshop series, “Mastering the Ivy League” and “Academics Plus” in MyWLRC 2.0! And remember that we’re here to support your online learning journey through individual appointments as well!
