#1 – Create a schedule and stick to it
Setting a daily routine is crucial when it comes to successful remote learning. In addition to planning when you view the training videos that are at the heart of your coursework, it's important to schedule in dedicated time for reviewing notes, preparing for tests, and completing projects. It is likewise vital to create time for yourself to stay active and pursue hobbies and interests. Writing down your tasks first thing in the morning can help set your intentions for the day and keep you motivated to complete them.
Utilizing a free 'to-do' list template online can assist you in planning out your days effectively. Make sure to list every task, big or small, that you want to accomplish and prioritize your top three goals for the day. Furthermore, setting reminders on your calendar or phone can help you to remain on track and meet deadlines, and incorporating a daily routine check-in and review session at the end of the day can help you stay on the right track.
#2 – Set up a designated study space
Creating a dedicated study space is crucial for success in remote learning. It's essential for you to establish a quiet and distraction-free area away from the television and other family gathering spaces. A desk or table in a well-lit room, with enough space for a computer, writing, and note-taking, and a comfortable chair will help you maintain proper posture, prevent neck and shoulder pain, and promote focus. Avoid studying on a couch or bed. A formal setting for your studies will not only improve your concentration but also help you maintain a healthy body posture. Additionally, keeping the study space organized and clutter-free will make for a more conducive learning environment, creating a sense of responsibility and ownership for your own learning process.
#3 – Stay engaged and connected
Staying engaged and avoiding distractions is key to success in remote learning. One of the best ways to stay connected to your instructors and classmates is to actively participate in online discussions and virtual study groups. RemoteMode’s Forum is an excellent platform to connect with other learners, where you can support and reinforce one another. You should also check your email and online class platform (i.e., RemoteMode’s Dashboard) daily to stay updated on class assignments and changes to the syllabus. It's important to remember that your instructors, career advisors, and mentors are available to assist you and provide support throughout the remote learning process. Utilize all available resources such as email, the Forum, and Dashboard to schedule meetings with your mentor and interact with your faculty. By staying engaged and connected, you'll be able to maximize your learning experience and achieve your career preparation goals.
#4 – Maintain a healthy lifestyle
Keeping a balanced routine is vital for excelling in remote learning. It's easy to fall into the trap of sedentary habits when learning from home, but staying active and taking care of your physical and mental well-being are crucial for staying focused and motivated. Make sure to schedule regular exercise, whether it's a yoga class or a run around the block, and make sure to take breaks throughout the day to stretch and move your body.
Eating nutritious meals and staying hydrated will also help to boost your energy levels and improve your concentration. Additionally, getting enough sleep and managing stress through meditation or journaling can also contribute to a healthy lifestyle. By taking care of your overall well-being, you will be able to stay on top of your work and excel in your remote learning journey.
