4 Time Management Tips for Online Students

Online courses give students the flexibility to take their class anytime, anywhere. The trick, students say, is staying on top of them.
Doing so requires discipline, commitment, and organization—traits any successful student should possess, no matter what path they're taking to complete their degree.

1. Make a plan: Online students need structure, and a study calendar is a great way to create it.  Check your syllabus before your course kicks off, and commit to due dates on your calendar. Then, designate study times for each class, and stick to them.

2. Check in daily: One draw of online classes is that students only need Internet access to connect to their courses. If you have an iPhone or Android device, leverage it to stay organized and check into your course daily.

3. Look ahead: Knowing what is due in six weeks, not just the next day, can help students maximize their time. And once you know when an assignment is due, don't wait until the day before to start working on it.

4. Speak up: If you struggle or fall behind, don't stay silent, reach out to your instructor to let them know what issues you are facing.
