Dedicate a certain amount of time for studying. This will help you keep yourself accountable and proactive
READ THE SYLLABUS (if you have one). This will guide you to the material that you should focus on studying. This way you won’t be wasting your time.
Put your phone away and close/minimize unnecessary tabs on your computers. It is very easy to become distracted. A 5 minute “break” turns into 10 minutes, which then turns into 30 minute, and so on.
Due to online school, a lot of the notes you take are being typed. It is advised that you also hand write some, as it is proven to enhance your memory. Writing notes down can be as easy as making flash cards.
Do not try to cram every subject into one study session. Break it up and designate certain days for different subjects. Cramming makes studying even more undesirable and longer than needed be.
Study in a space that is not your bed. As tempting as it is, for most it is not a environment that will have you super focused on academics.
