Can’t stay focused when listening to the video lecture or completing online class assignments? Here are some tips to stay focused during an online class.
Start the day fresh
Don’t skip breakfast. Find time for a bit of exercise. Take a bath. These activities will give you an energy boost throughout the day.
Whether your school materials are online or offline, keep them organized. This will save you time when trying to find notes and other materials. Creating shortcuts on your computer will help you access folders easily.
Find a comfortable study area
Make sure your place of study is comfortable. Ensure the room is well lit to avoid eye strain that could cause headaches or drowsiness. Avoid areas that are too comfy (bed, sofa etc) because it will probably make you sleep.
Turn off the TV and cell phone. Put a ‘do not disturb’ sign on your door. Set your messenger status to “unavailable.” Close browser windows. Log off from social websites. Don’t play music that will distract you.
Set a Schedule
Create a study schedule by finding your comfort zone. Schedule your toughest work for the time you feel most energetic and when your concentration ability is at its peak.
Have a plan
Every day, make a list of the course tasks you need to accomplish – reading, doing homework assignments, taking quizzes, tests, answering discussion boards, etc. Stick to it. Setting a reasonable time limit for each of your tasks will help you avoid procrastinating.
Take a Break
Do not push yourself to focus for more than 2 hrs. Find time for relaxing. Play a game, talk to a friend, go for a hike, eat fresh fruits and juice, and drink plenty of water.
Use offline tools
Staring at the computer screen for hours makes your mind go numb, so try using physical tools like pens, paper, books or printouts now and then to reduce the monotony.
Hope this may help you
