My Semester as a First-Time Online Student

cody bourque -- Tue, 12/08/2015 - 9:15am

So with the final week of the semester approaching, I’d like to give final word about my semester as a first time online student during my last semester of college. First, I’d like to say that online learning is much different than traditional classes where learning in a physical classroom. Online learning is like buying a piece of furniture that isn’t assembled; you have all the pieces to succeed, you’ve just got to follow the instructions. The analogy is a little odd, but it’s true.

Have you ever been in a class and it seemed like everyone else is understanding the concepts much easier than you are? Maybe they teacher put concepts into a PowerPoint online for you to learn on your own and just gave examples in class without verbally explaining concepts.

Your Perfect Study Environment

cody bourque -- Tue, 10/27/2015 - 11:15am

Continuing with the theme of study habits, I’ve heard from many people and they’ve all had different ideas of “their perfect study environment”. It seems that these environments are different for different people. For example, I enjoy to be in an area where I can have music on. Whether it's on headphones or speakers, I just need music. In my previous blog, I spoke about the music I like to study with. Many people have told me that they need absolute silence to be able to study. There are actually many other qualities of your environment that affect how you handle schoolwork. Different elements can either create positive or negative results.

Fighting Stress

As a college student, a consistent daily routine is not something that we know all too well. From first hand experience, I truly know how hard it is to develop a routine and stick to it. You may be thinking “what's so important about having a routine as long as I’m getting everything done?”
