A Good Online Study Environment
Two key advantages of online learning are flexibility and convenience. However, a good study environment is necessary for student success.

A Good Study Environment. A critical component of academic success is a good study environment.

   Get some peace and quiet. You will need a quiet place to work without distractions from things like television, family, or roommates.
   Avoid games. Consider uninstalling any computer games to avoid temptation. Or keep the games on a different computer in the house.
   Turn off your cell phone. Let friends and family members know the hours that you will be "at" school.
   Beware surfing the black hole of the Internet. It is easy to lose track of the time as you wander from site to site.
   Consider ergonomics. Adjust the height of your chair, keyboard, and screen so that you are comfortable. Forearms and thighs should be level and parallel to the floor. Wrists should not be bent while typing.
   Set up good lighting and comfortable seating. Lighting in the room should be at least as bright as the computer screen to avoid eye strain.
