What are some ways to manage the switch to all classes being online now?

  • Time management: Set up a visual of your schedule and stick to it! Review your course syllabi and list important due dates. Add scheduled meetings and other student support services (e.g. tutoring). Identify dates ahead of time to submit accommodation requests (remote interpreting or speech-to-text services) to the disability services office in a timely manner.
  • Get a notetaker: Request a notetaker to take notes for pre-recorded or live online courses, or for any audio information being presented (e.g. a podcast). A notetaker can reduce the time spent searching for information in several places, allowing you to focus on one screen or item.
  • Stay in touch with your instructor: Take advantage of the instructor’s office hours to meet with your instructor. Use the time to ask questions or clarification about the material or assignments. Remember, you can ask the disability services office for accommodations for these meetings.
  • Break down assignments: Be sure to take breaks so you don’t get fatigued by reading and watching the screen all day. Schedule time before and after online classes to review material and take a break before moving to the next class or assignment.
