Tips for Successful Online/Distance Learning
Learning and studying in the online environment requires different strategies and skills than taking face-to-face classes. You will need to be intentional about studying and managing your time.
It’s helpful to create a study schedule for each day, including when you will work on each of your classes. Build time into your schedule for fun and breaks. The worst feeling is to realize that you just spent an hour kind-of-sort-of studying while simultaneously kind-of-sort-of chatting online with friends, while not really being mentally present for either activity. Studies have shown that human beings don’t multi-task very well.
You will be more successful if you set up a designated study space (or a few carefully selected spaces) where you will do all your work. This may be a quiet place in your house or a favorite coffee shop. The space should be your fortress against distractions, which may be of a different nature at your home than they were in a Brockport residence hall. It is helpful to keep televisions, phones, and other items away from your workspace when studying.
Take care of yourself physically and socially. Get plenty of sleep, eat well, exercise, and stay in touch with friends, even though some of these things may be more challenging right now due to “social distancing.” Give yourself rewards for completing tasks.
Be aware of which study practices help you and which ones don’t. This will help you take charge of your learning. Do some quick self-reflection by writing down what you did to study for a test or finish a paper; then evaluate how helpful each activity was. Self-awareness can make a huge difference in your grades.
Resources for Online Learning
If you find yourself falling behind, reach out to your instructor and contact the Academic Success Center. Below are additional resources for effective online learning.
SUNY Brockport will allow students to opt for Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory grading for the duration of the pandemic. This temporary policy change applies to all students, regardless of their class status or level. Students can choose to this option for any or all courses they are registered for, except for courses that ended at midterm of the Spring 2020 semester.
Also as part of this policy, we’ve approved an extension to students’ ability to withdraw from a course. Students will be able to withdraw from a course until April 24, 2020, without permission of department chair, and until May 6, 2020, with permission of department chair.
The credit received in courses graded on the S/U option counts toward graduation requirements, but has no effect on the grade point average. This is because the credit is non-indexable (that is, it carries no quality points). S/U grades may be used for any course including those that apply towards the General Education program, a major, a minor, certification or professional areas with some limitations. Students who wish to request this option should do so via this link: Request S/U Grading Option
