Tips and Resources Discussed
COMMUNICATE! Early, often, maybe more than you think you need to! If you have a question or concern reach out right away! Look on the syllabus for your faculty response time, and make sure to leave them enough time to respond.
Take your mental health seriously. See the COVID-19 counseling resources page, or the resources below.
Watch your login frequency! Login to your classes at the beginning of the week, then daily after that.
Maintain your own calendar: Use the calendars in D2L, but also keep your own calendar so you don’t have to dig for important dates and deadlines.
Time Management: Online does not mean less time, Pencil in the same amount of time you would have spent on your in-person class to dedicate to online classes. Schedule and designate times to be on task. If possible, find a space where you will not be interrupted. This will help you concentrate and get done more quickly.
Get a Tutor! The tutoring center is still open. See their website for updates on tutoring or to schedule an appointment.
