Participating in Online Learning

Going to Online Class

  • Make sure that you have the meeting link to join your class.
  • Make sure that anyone at home knows when you will be in class. Request that you are not interrupted during those times, if possible.
  • Close all additional programs running on your computer to benefit most out of your online class.
  • Unless you are using your phone to join the online class, put your phone away and block notifications, so it does not make noise or distract you during class.


Practicing Good Etiquette in the Online Classroom

  • Remember that your instructors can see you. Be conscious of the image you are projecting.
  • Act as if you're in a classroom. Don't walk around or leave the room unless your instructor has said that it is OK.
  • Read the ground rules that your instructor or department set for online classroom. If you are not sure, ask about your instructor’s expectations for class participation (e.g., Should you raise your hand digitally or use the chat function?)
  • If you know your environment may include unavoidable distractions (e.g., people walking around, children, noise), let your instructor know ahead of time, and stay muted whenever you are not talking.


Managing Your Time While Learning Online

  • Create a daily schedule  with consistent wake-up and sleep times.
  • Set goals for each week. What specific things do you want to achieve? How will you break your work down into smaller, manageable pieces? Please click here for an example weekly goals plan.
  • Break your day into 30-minute or 1-hour increments, with a specific activity devoted to each one. You can get more work done if you work in small chunks.
  • Act like you're going to class. Shower, get dressed, eat, and prepare mentally for lecture.
  • Don’t forget to schedule intentional breaks for eating, exercise, and socializing. Do try to schedule these during low-energy times of the day.
  • If you are having trouble creating a schedule, setting goals for yourself, or breaking down your work into manageable chunks, consider booking an appointment with our Student Advisor.
