Since there is no tutor monitor and supervise your progress. How much can you learn depends on your personal efforts. If you want to be successful, how are you preparing to overcome the new online learning environment?
Here are some tips and suggestions for you to know how to be well prepared for online learning.
1. Schedule your time
You can use some time to check the timetable and make a study schedule to make sure you are fully prepared to attend all tutorials and lectures online. Please read the relevant content beforehand and prepare questions to ask the tutor if there are any difficulties.
After you have established a semester routine based on the class time table, you will find that your time suddenly becomes more flexible because you are going to have online lessons. However, please try not to waste time-if possible, try to follow the same class schedule as before. Try to log in the website of online learning on time and listen to the online class.
2. Regular breaks
When you have online studying and working for a long time, you will find that you lose your concentration easily. Also, over-learning online cannot retain information effectively in our brains. Therefore, you can plan to establish a few minute breaks for playing mobile and take a walk. If you plan them well, then you will not be distracted and will not play your phone at work and when having online classes.
3. Well-prepared for online learning tools
Paper and pen
Even if you are having online lessons, the traditional studying tools are still very useful. The paper note will be easy for you to read and handwriting will be easier for you to retain memory and knowledge. Writing notes by hand can actually help you better remember the notes you took down. Handwriting has a longer impact on memory.
Pen and paper is a great tool to focus on the task at hand. You can jot down some notes when you listen to the key points and important things during the online classroom. Writing by hand can be better to express ourselves and summarize the main points.
For online studying, the most important learning tools should be your own computer or laptop. You need a device to connect to the internet so that you can attend the online classes. The laptop can help you organize well and remember online work, students can easily view their tasks all in one study tool, they can edit, modify and copy their work, they can also communicate and share their works with schoolmates, tutors, and professors via email.

For example, you require to search for how to reach the functions of screen-sharing, whiteboard, meeting recording, etc, on the online meeting software.
