HAWKS Online Study Tips
Ask yourself what you are doing for self-care such as: Are you taking breaks? Are you eating healthy? Are you drinking enough water? Are you getting enough exercise? Take a walk!
Treat your online class just like a regular class. Attending class matters! If you don’t log on daily, you will be bombarded with discussions and other messages.
Do not wait until the last minute to submit your work. Sometimes you may have trouble attaching your work, encounter computer issues, etc. Therefore, it is critical to submit your work early.
Do you have a clean space where you are able to learn effectively? Make sure you have an organized and clean area for you to learn.
Don’t use your cell phone while you are working. Turn it off!
The Cornell Note-taking Method is one useful note-taking style. Whatever note-taking style you use, take notes to stay engaged.
Successful students ask for help. Don’t feel embarrassed to ask your professor, counselor, or academic coach for help. We are more than happy to help you. Remember, we want you to succeed.
Make sure you connect with others via zoom, chats, and classroom discussions. Try to develop study buddies in your classes.
