Time Management Skills

Many students are inexperienced in planning for grocery shopping, cooking, and exercising, and as a result, develop poor health. Similarly, students can be unsure of how to schedule enough time to complete assignments, attend online classes, and study for tests, and as a result, fail courses. The Time Management Skills tutorial is designed to help students manage their time, make healthy choices, and prioritize their tasks so they can succeed with online learning.

Tip of the Day

How can I get the most out of my textbook?

Under different circumstances, your approach to reading text varies depending on the voice in which the material’s narrative is written. You may have a preferred approach that has worked well for you in the past. However, as more cases become confirmed, you may feel the stress of the news weigh more heavily on your mind.

You may be finding it increasingly difficult to concentrate on assigned readings, because of the direction your mind is wandering in. You may find it is taking longer to figure out which lecture notes you need to write down to study from.
