Are you taking classes online? Do you need help figuring out Distance Learning? Socratica Friends, we’re here to help. You don’t have to be in a classroom to be a Great Student. But there are some important differences about the best ways to study for Online Courses. One big difference is that you are on your own to manage your time. Don’t try to cram all your online courses in one day! We’ll give you some practical advice about how to break up your study time. The best method we know for this is the Pomodoro Technique. We made a video all about it. Another difference in online learning is how you will be participating. Discussion forums are the most common way you will be required to participate for your online classes, but some instructors arrange for meetings with Google Hangouts, Skype, or Zoom. Be prepared if this is the case with a webcam. You can use your phone camera in a pinch. Find a quiet place in your house to claim as your special study spot. This will help you take your online classes seriously. Every time you sit down in your study spot, you’ll be ready to work. We have a video to help you get your desk organized.
Stay tuned! Bonus features for this video are under development...
