How to Be Successful in an Online Course

With the coronavirus pandemic transitioning many schools and universities online, I thought I would share a few  tips on how to be successful in your courses. It may be daunting, but as long as you stay motivated and eager to learn, online courses can be just as educational as in-person ones! While you have to take more responsibility for accomplishing your assignments on time, there can be advantages to teaching yourself the material. It allows you to learn at your own pace, so you can speed through the material or spend more time on concepts that puzzle you.

Keep in mind…we’re in an uncertain time right now with the coronavirus pandemic, so these tips may vary for a course that was recently moved to an online setting due to school cancellations. I’m sure as long as you communicate with your professors, they’ll be more than happy to help you out and work with you!

In addition, my course load is very heavily computer-based as I’m studying computer programming and development. If your courses are not computer-driven, they may be set-up differently than what I might mention in here, but most of these tips still apply!

Things To Do When You’re Stuck At Home

With the coronavirus outbreak causing people to stay at home, I thought I would share a list of ideas for those who are looking for ways to stay busy. Since I don’t want to spread the virus and everything is getting canceled and closing down anyways, it looks like I am going to be homebound for a while!

As an introvert, this isn’t a huge change for me. It’s actually giving me more time to accomplish my massive to-do list. I admit, I’m still disappointed because I actually do enjoy participating in large events, but I’m determined to look on the bright side. Being stuck at home will allow me to accomplish many creative and productive endeavors that I haven’t had the opportunity to work on yet!

Anyways, whether work is completely closed or if you’re working from home due to the virus, you’re bound to have more free time than you’re used to. I tried to incorporate a variety of activities-some are active, some are productive, and some are leisurely. I hope you are inspired by some of these!

Good Reading Habits Tag

goodreadinghabits1

I was nominated for the Good Reading Habits tag by Macey at Brine and Books. She has a lovely blog with lifestyle, book, and writing posts, so be sure to check out her site!

I was quite excited to see this tag as I’ve been trying to get back into reading lately! I never stopped reading, but throughout college and postgraduate life, I was so caught up with classes and work that I didn’t read as often as I wanted to. For the past year or so, however, I have been allocating more of my free time to reading! I’m still not where I would like to be, but I do have some good habits to share!

Anyways, for this tag, all you have to do is discuss your good reading habits, tag back to the original creator, and tag a few friends!
