Time Management Skills (Learn Module)

Time Management Skills IconWhile studying from home, students are faced with the challenge of structuring their daily schedules to balance personal and college tasks. 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 or miss assignments. When students can’t schedule their time, they can get overwhelmed and frustrated.

The Time Management Skills module is designed to help students manage their time, make healthy choices, and prioritize their tasks so they can succeed with online learning.
