Keep a calendar, weekly chart or list of all course work. Create a regular study and assignment schedule.
Give yourself extra time to complete assignments. Start assignments right away, so if issues come up, you have time to seek clarification.
Read course guides for technology requirements. Watch for instructor emails and course site announcements.
Use your instructor’s virtual office hours, email or phone; and use classroom discussion forums to build community with your classmates.
Set goals and check in with yourself weekly. Or pair up with a fellow classmate as accountability partners.
Don’t wait until the last minute to reach out. Contact your instructor or a classmate. For technical issues, contact the UVic Help Desk.
Multi-tasking often ends up causing us to take longer to complete projects. Focus on one task at a time.
Take regular breaks from sitting, by standing, stretching or walking. Unplug for periods during the day to keep a healthy balance.
