If you, like many, have had to move your courses online during the COVID-19 pandemic, we understand how it can be a struggle. Luckily, we have created a list of five key things that you can do in order to Ace your online learning straight from your Montreal student residence.
Don’t Change a Thing
The key is to treat your online lecture the same way you would as a real lecture, stay attentive, be on time, and focus on the content.
We understand that it might be easier to slack off when you’re taking a course online, but it’s important to take notes and be organized just as you would in a real lecture.
The beauty of taking online courses? You can roll out of bed and still make attendance! Unfortunately, that’s not the best way to eat your courses – you should think about organizing yourself beforehand and understanding what the contact will be so that you can take notes while keeping up with the lecture.
Sometimes, the content might not be syncing the same way when you’re not physically in a lecture hall. That’s why it’s key to debrief after your lecture so that you can understand where you may be missing information and what the key goals of the course were.
Create Digital Study Groups
One of the best parts of the university experience is your peer class. Just because you’re not on campus doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy group studying. Take the initiative to create a group study session and conduct it digitally via Zoom! It can be just as rewarding and helpful as a physical study group, and you’ll have the added benefit of creating lasting connections with your peers. On top of that, you can do it all from the comfort of your Montreal student residence!
