Create a study plan
Most online courses will already have a study path as well as teaching and learning plans, to assist you to track your progress throughout the study period. However, everyone learns at different paces. Create a plan for yourself, with days of the week, and even times of the day. You know yourself the best, so set up a plan that works for you.
Set small goals/objectives
You don’t have to do everything at the same time. Maybe you want to learn for 1 hour, three times a week, instead of 3 hours once a week, that is totally up to you. What matters most is setting goals that are achievable, realistic, and time-bound.
Weekly to-do lists
It is important to make time, at least once a week to study. Remember, you are doing a course for a specific period of time, and you don’t want to forget the many interesting things that you learn along the way. By setting weekly to-do lists, you can decide how much time and what days you can dedicate to your studies.
Regular breaks help to prevent exhaustion and passive interaction with learning materials. When you passively interact with the materials, you read or watch them, but you don’t take any of the content in, as your mind is starting to get tired. Have a stretch, reflect, and then pick up on your work again.
