Adjusting Your Study Habits for Online Classes

An open planner that shows a year of small monthly calendars on each page. It is surrounded by colorful tape rolls, pens, and a houseplant.

Setting a Schedule

As the semester unfolds, you may have fewer social commitments, group meetings, or work hours. Setting a schedule for yourself can help provide structure and keep you motivated. If you don't already keep a weekly or daily calendar, try doing it. An online schedule maker, like this one, may be exactly the tool you need. Be sure to include time for exercise and self-care.
